The IPC Annual Conference 2020 will take place on 28-29 May 2020 in Vienna, Austria and will focus on the future of the postal workforce in the era of digitalisation and artificial intelligence and the increased competition from low-cost delivery providers.

This year’s event will tackle the themes of the future of the postal workforce in the era of digitalisation and artificial intelligence and the increased competition from low-cost delivery providers.

How will the postal sector likely be affected by the increasing use of artificial intelligence, automation and other innovations? Will machine learning transform the postal industry? How will robotisation impact the postal workforce? The debate will focus on how the postal workforce can adapt to the new market realities of low-cost, self-employed competition.

How to ensure equal pay for work of equal value and promote diversity in the workforce? How to attract the right talents and skills in line with the new postal activities? How to ensure that the reputation of the postal employee remains a valued part of day-to-day life? How can posts monetise services to society through their last-mile connections? How to align the future postal workforce with the future business strategies and new roles for posts (collecting data, installation services, community assistance)?
