2017 Show Review

2017 show a huge success!

POST-EXPO 2017 welcomed more than 3,000 visitors and featured more exciting new products and technologies than ever before in Geneva, Switzerland, this year.

  • Thousands of attendees from 100 different countries came to see a diverse range of emerging technologies in the postal sector, from droids and electric vehicles to sortation and scanning technologies.
  • Running alongside the exhibition, POST-EXPO 2017 Conference saw more than 70 speakers present on the most important topics in the postal sector, from how to adopt innovative practices into posts, to the growth in e-commerce and updates on cross-border regulations.
  • Postal and Parcel Technology International Award winners and the Postal Innovation Platform Startup of the Year were announced at a drinks reception.
  • Next year’s show will take place on October 9-11 in Hamburg, Germany.

Tony Robinson, CEO of UKi Media & Events and founder of POST-EXPO said, “This year’s POST-EXPO has been really good, one of the best. An easy monitor for how satisfied exhibitors are is the very high level of bookings already made for next year, when POST-EXPO will return to Hamburg. That city is the ‘spiritual home’ of the show as it was there that POST-EXPO was first staged back in 1997.
