InfoTrends' Matt Swain to Discuss the Future of the USPS at PostalVision 2020
InfoTrends announced Matt Swain, an associate director for InfoTrends Document Outsourcing service, will be a featured speaker at the inaugural PostalVision 2020 conference on June 15 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va. The event, themed “Catching the Wave to the Postal Ecosystem of the Future,” is designed to address the relevance of the current USPS model in a digital age, and provide actionable direction for how it can evolve to a sustainable business model.
During his presentation, “U.S. Postal Review and Emerging Digital Alternatives,” Swain will provide a historical and forward-looking perspective on the USPS, as well as highlight companies that are evolving to address the digital migration.
“As we watch major players in the print and mail market evolving to embrace digital distribution strategies, we also see postal organizations around the globe creating competitive digital solutions,” commented Swain. “A post where we have seen little digital innovation to-date is the U.S. Postal Service.”
After the presentation, Swain and Jeff Jarvis (author of “What Would Google Do?") will co-moderate a panel of executives and industry experts regarding the topics of evolution and innovation.
Other speakers include:
• Vint Cerf, vice president and chief internet evangelist, Google
• Ruth Goldway, chairman, U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission
• Ronald A. Stroman, deputy postmaster general, U.S. Postal Service
• David Williams, inspector general, U.S. Postal Service
