It’s All About You And Your Company

You and your company are the center of the mail communications industry. Developing your management knowledge, technical skills, professionalism, and networking so you can do a better job is what MAILCOM is all about.

world-trade-center-aerial-photo-march-2001That idea was born in 1982 at a meeting in the World Trade Center that would become known as the first MAILCOM,  and it had big implications. Around those who manage mail and distribution operations everything else revolves — vendors, technology, and service providers.

They exist for you and your company. But until MAILCOM came on the scene, the industry was centered on vendors or service providers.

Over 100,000 Professionals Educated

MAILCOM changed that. Run by and for industry professionals, MAILCOM flourished to become the world’s largest educational convention for mail communications management. Over 100,000 executives and managers who manage mail systems in corporations, institutions, and government — or run their own company — have been part of the MAILCOM educational experience.

Learning From Real Leaders

That experience begins with meeting real leaders who have excelled in their career. Hearing how they overcame hurdles, learning their leadership secrets has motivated countless professionals. “This conference changed my life” is a refrain heard thousands of times from MAILCOM attendees.

Delivering Actionable Information

The heart of MAILCOM are the educational sessions, training programs, and certification opportunities. Striving to be independent and non-commercial, MAILCOM seminars deliver the nuts and bolts information managers need to improve productivity and service in their organizations — objective, actionable information. Many times the instructors are veteran professionals who have been in the same situations you face. Other times, the answer comes from a colleague you happen to be sitting next to.

Technology Exhibition

Called “The Big Show” by attendees because of the diversity of products offered, the MAILCOM Exhibition puts you in touch with the leading equipment, software, and technology vendors. The latest technology you need for printing, processing and distribution of mail communications can be found at MAILCOM. And shopping around can mean finding the best products and contracts at the lowest price for your company.
