First Time Attendees
Is this your first time attending the National Postal Forum? Well get ready!
We have made every effort to make your National Postal Forum experience intuitive, effective and fulfilling.
Before you arrive...
The "Online Personal Planner". This web application was built to help you manage your time, choose appropriate workshops, learn about our speakers and exhibitors, and make note of the exhibitor booths you most want to visit. Also available as a mobile app, the personal planner is an invaluable tool for both new and experienced forum attendee. The Personal Planner will be available closer to the event. All registrants will receive an email announcing when the Personal Planner becomes available along with instructions on how to use it.
When you arrive...
The first step upon your arrival at the 2014 National Postal Forum will be to visit our registration desk. NPF does not ship attendee materials ahead of time in order to make packing for the show more conveinient for the attendee. Because of this, each attendee should visit the registration area to check in, receive a name badge and be given a handbag containing maps, schedules, a Program and Exhibit Hall Guide, a ticket book (IMPORTANT!) and special offers from some of our sponsoring exhibitors.
The registration area is located just inside the entrance to the Prince George's Exhibition Hall and there should be plenty of signs to help you find your way.
If you did not pre-register for the conference there are several dedicated tables for onsite registration. We separate the pre-registration and onsite registration lines in order to provide the fastest service possible for all of our attendees. Attendees are not permitted to attend any workshops or networking events without first obtaining a name badge and ticket book.
You will only need to stop by the registration desk once during the 4 day event.
Registration hours will be:
- Saturday 15th 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
- Sunday 16th 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
- Monday 17th 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM
- Tuesday 18th 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
- Wednesday 19th 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
After you have visited the registration desk...
To start you off on your forum experience, we offer a Forum Orientation Session on Sunday Morning in order to help you to choose the workshops that will benefit you the most. In this session you will also learn how to earn a USPS Professional Certificate and hear many other helpful hints to ensure your first time experience at the National Postal Forum is productive and trouble free. As a first-timer at the forum you won't want to miss this informative session tailored specifically for the first time attendee!
The National Postal Forum provides many, many opportunities to meet other mailing professionals, be entertained and unwind in more casual settings. All networking events will require you to have your ticket books available on-hand for entrance as well as for food and drinks if included. Guest are also required to have tickets for entry to all networking events. Tickets for individual networking events can be purchased at the registration counter during normal registration hours.
