PostEurop General Assemblies

Since its inception PostEurop General Assemblies (previously known as Plenary Assemblies) gathers Members of the association to discuss and approve matters pertaining to the strategy and governance of the organisation. The General Assemblies are hosted by Members and is a perfect opportunity to welcome the entire membership, strengthen relationships and showcase their organisation.

The event brings together over 50 European postal operators, CEOs, innovators and sector leaders to discuss how the postal service is responding to current and emerging opportunities as well as managing challenges.


Business Forum

The Business Forum was created to bring postal leaders and experts together in a familiar setting, to discuss latest trends and initiatives which has or may have a large impact on the postal business. Hence, the theme may vary from year to year. Since 2012, it has been organised alongside the General Assembly and gives participants the opportunity to learn about current postal trends, gain insights from CEOs and deep dive into how posts can achieve a sustainable social and competitive transformation in challenging times.


Gala Dinner

The Gala Dinner will be an evening of celebration of postal achievements and will include announcement of PostEurop Awards and local entertainment provided by the hosting postal operators.
