PostalVision 2020: Finding the Postal - Digital Horizon

has just announced its agenda.   The agenda brings together some of the clearest thinkers in both the digital and print communications world with a goal of examining how the Postal Service can thrive in a digitally-centered world. 

PostalVision 2020 is dfifferent from most postal conferences as it focuses on more on the future than on either the past or how the Postal Service survives the current financial crisis.  Clearly if your business or livelihood depends on the Postal Service, then learning what the Postal Service might look like 10 years hence is critical part of your strategic planning effort.  The full agenda is as follows:
