How important is it for posts to have a clear brand identity?


POST-EXPO to host live startup innovation session

POST-EXPO has teamed up with the Postal Innovation Platform (PIP) to invite startups to present innovative products and solutions to a jury of postal and logistics experts. The aim of the session is to find new developments that have the potential to change the postal and logistics market, or even create a new market.

On September 26, from 2:00pm-5:30pm, conference delegates will have the opportunity to learn about the new innovations. Each startup will be given five minutes to present their solution and then another five minutes to discuss it with the jury. At the end of the session, the jury will select the startup which offers the most potential.

The winning startup will receive an award during POST-EXPO and will get a unique opportunity to present its product or solution to the experts of Swiss Post. The post will invite the winners to the organization’s headquarters to present its solution. During this time the winner will also be able to gain valuable feedback and input, and be given the opportunity to discuss a possible cooperation agreement.
