IPC Annual Conference 2016 - Postal Innovation for SMEs

The IPC Annual Conference is a truly unique event for the global postal industry: an exclusive, invitation-only event for postal operator CEOs.

The IPC Annual Conference 2016 took place in Brussels on 19 & 20 May 2016 and looked at how postal innovation can help Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to further benefit from e-Commerce growth potential.

For the 2016 International Post Corporation Annual Conference, CEOs and senior executives from leading postal operators from America, Asia Pacific and Europe gathered at the Hotel de la Poste in Brussels, in the Tour and Taxis complex, once the largest central hub for the transit of merchandise through the capital. 

This year, the conference focused on how postal innovation can benefit small businesses and help them further embrace cross-border e-Commerce. 

The conference heard examples of how postal operators can successfully work in partnership with leading global platforms to facilitate global e-Commerce. Such partnerships can provide the front-end systems and fulfillment and dispatch operations to enable SMEs to access global commerce through postal delivery services.

The IPC Annual Conference highlighted the benefits to postal operators of aligning their digital strategies with partners who can help to grow e-Commerce through the seamless integration of retailers’ warehouse management systems with postal delivery solutions.
