IOM Post hosts Sepac conference

Small European Posts embrace challenges

Isle of Man Post Office is preparing to host a specialist industry conference for small nations next week. 

The SEPAC two-day forum from 3 July at the Sefton Hotel in Douglas, will see 15 delegates attend from Posts around Europe - including Malta, Luxembourg, the Faroe Islands and the Vatican.

Sepac is the Small European Postal Administration Cooperation, a body which meets to discuss topical issues and the impact of a changing industry on businesses in member nations. 

It's the first time Isle of Man Post Office has hosted the gathering in the Cooperation's history.

Post Office bosses say a varied programme will include time built into the itinerary for visitors to tour the Island.

Maxine Cannon, General Manager Isle of Man Stamps & Coins said: "IOMPO has been a member of Sepac since its inception in 1999. It allows us to share our experiences and gain the knowledge of our counterparts across Europe and come together as one on an annual basis to discuss topical issues and challenges as we all consider how our industry will develop in the future."

"The synergy amongst the Sepac members is something we at Isle of Man Post Office very much value.”
