2015 Networking Events
The National Postal Forum believes that networking is the key to growing business and making things happen!
Networking is a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest. There is no better place for you to accomplish this than at the National Postal Forum.
For that reason, fun and engaging Networking Events are scheduled from the beginning of the Forum on Sunday until the very end on Wednesday night. There are many opportunities to eat, have a drink, make new connections and enjoy the company of fellow professionals in the Mailing Industry!
