2021 Virtual NPF

Virtual National Postal Forum

2021 NPF

May 3rd and 4th.  Please save the dates!


Please stay tuned for more 2021 information as it becomes available.

Due to ongoing concerns and uncertainties regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Postal Forum is officially, and regretfully, announcing the cancellation of our in person event at the Gaylord Opryland hotel May 2-5, 2021. 

While recent news of treatment and prevention has been encouraging, it is clear from the current trajectory of Covid-19 that questions and issues related to the possibility of an in person event will not be fully resolved by May. Given that the NPF’s number one priority is the safety and health of the Mailing and Shipping community, the NPF had no choice but to cancel our in-person Forum. 

However, this presents an exciting opportunity to reshape and reinvent the Forum. With that goal in mind, we are in the process of determining the best options for providing you with a full year of the kind of robust content and engagement the Forum community has come to expect. 

But it won’t end there. Be sure to watch for details about additional educational and engagement opportunities planned through the entire year.

If you elected to carryover your 2020 Orlando registration we will automatically transfer it to the new series of events being held throughout 2021.

The NPF thanks you for your understanding, patience and patronage. We look forward to bringing the rewarding educational, inspirational and networking experiences that continue to be the hallmarks of the NPF throughout the coming year.

For more information please stay tuned to NPF.org
