National Postal Forum 2020

The National Postal Forum is the premier mailing and shipping conference that works directly with the United States Postal Service to provide the most comprehensive educational and networking platform for meeting the needs of the industry. Offering 130+ educational workshops, USPS Officer-led sessions and the largest mailing and shipping industry trade show, the NPF is the ideal opportunity for the industry professional to learn, collaborate and grow their business.


Due to ongoing concerns and uncertainties regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Postal Forum is officially, and regretfully, announcing the cancellation of our in person event at the Gaylord Opryland hotel May 2-5, 2021.

While recent news of treatment and prevention has been encouraging, it is clear from the current trajectory of Covid-19 that questions and issues related to the possibility of an in person event will not be fully resolved by May. Given that the NPF’s number one priority is the safety and health of the Mailing and Shipping community, the NPF had no choice but to cancel our in-person Forum.

However, this presents an exciting opportunity to reshape and reinvent the Forum. With that goal in mind, we are in the process of determining the best options for providing you with a full year of the kind of robust content and engagement the Forum community has come to expect. And we’re delivering:

We will be holding a virtual National Postal Forum on May 3rd and 4th. Please save the dates!

But it won’t end there. Be sure to watch for details about additional educational and engagement opportunities planned through the entire year.

To automatically receive the latest updates, opt in here and we’ll keep you informed.

If you elected to carryover your 2020 Orlando registration we will automatically transfer it to the new series of events being held throughout 2021.

The NPF thanks you for your understanding, patience and patronage. We look forward to bringing the rewarding educational, inspirational and networking experiences that continue to be the hallmarks of the NPF throughout the coming year.
