Programme

European envelope production took off at the beginning of the 20th century. Since then the industry has seen major changes, both in terms of technological developments and communication patterns. On the occasion of our 60th anniversary our programme promises to expand your horizons on the direction of our industry in the coming years.  Topics will include:

  • the future of the European mail industry - where will we be at in 10 years?
  • how continuous growth in e-commerce can create demand for envelopes 
  • insights into the evolution of direct mail
  • the impact of digital on the publishing world
  • the role of transactional mail for consumers.

Networking opportunities and social programme

Information and discussion is combined with excellent networking opportunities and top class social events, all in the beautiful setting of Marseille. This year's dinner and visiting programme includes:

  • MuCEM - the modern art museum of Marseille
  • Le Pharo - a palace built by Napoleon in 1858
  • Les Halles de la Major - the "nouvelle adresse" for gourmet food lovers
  • A boat tour in the turquoise waters of "Les Calanques".
