Meeting Space Request

Hospitality functions are not permitted during National Postal Forum Educational Sessions.

The National Postal Forum monitors closely the requests from companies for hospitality suites and meeting rooms to encourage exhibitors to use the suites during non-official function hours, and to discourage non-exhibiting companies from utilizing a hospitality suite or meeting space for business purposes and product demonstrations. If you are aware of violations of these policies, please inform Show Management.

If you need a meeting room for special meetings, please complete the Meeting Space Request Form and it return it to [email protected].

Pre-Show Mailings

Exhibitors may utilize the NPF pre- and post-show mailing list, by choosing from the following options.

You may receive the registered attendee list and process the mailing yourselves or you may go through our mailing house to have your mailing processed. The mailing list does not include the email addresses. Either way, NPF must see the piece and approve it before production. Two weeks prior to the NPF event, we generally have approximately 1500-2000 names to mail to, depending on the categories you choose. Approximately two weeks after the NPF, the total mailing list will be available.

If you would like to mail to more prospects, we do have a Mailing Industry Attendee Historical Mailing List that totals approximately 5,000 names. If you choose to mail to that list and the current registered attendees, then all mailings must go through our designated mail house. The cost to mail to either list is $500 to NPF plus processing and postage. Promotional mailings may be scheduled to drop as early as March 29, 2019. Exhibitors may mail to Mailing Industry Attendees, USPS and/or Exhibitors. If you would like to utilize the NPF mailing list options, click the list agreement link below.
