WMX Americas 2018 Call for Papers
The World Mail & Express (WMX) Americas Conference is being held at the InterContinental Miami, USA on Sunday 25 to Tuesday 27 February 2018 . We’re issuing an ‘official call for papers’ for expert speakers to share their knowledge on a variety of topics related to the mail and express industry.
WMX Americas is one of the most influential and inspiring post and parcel conferences in the Americas, typically attracting over 200 senior mail and express executives. This year’s theme is Disrupt. Innovate. Deliver. and will explore and debate the disruption the industry faces, the opportunities from innovation, and the constant need to deliver—the product and the business plan. We’re looking for speakers who can contribute to the following areas of discussion:
Topics might include the impacts of crowd sourced delivery models, mobile apps and the demand for more convenient deliveries looking at alternative delivery locations such as parcel lockers/shops, click and collect options at existing retailers etc. as well as faster deliveries.
Topics might include the switch to electric and ‘green’ fuelled vehicles, self driving or autonomous vehicles, delivery by drones/robots, artificial intelligence in operational processes and sortation, 3D printing etc.
Topics might include the growth of cross border e-commerce, global supply chains, updating operational systems, customs processes, policies on duties and taxes etc.
If you have expertise in any of these areas, then we would love to hear from you! And you don’t have to be an operator within mail and express, we welcome perspectives from all manner of industries that intersect our own.

- What you would like to focus your presentation on
- Who will be presenting
- Which sector of our audience you think this presentation will be valuable to
