The 2022 edition of our historical Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics will mark not only a special anniversary, but also the return to an in-person gathering after two difficult years of pandemic. To celebrate this truly special occasion, the event will be held in Rimini, the birthplace of Fellini and enchanting city, in its iconic Grand Hotel Rimini – Fellini’s favourite.
The Grand Hotel was also the stage of one of Fellini’s most famous movies, Amarcord, meaning nostalgic revocation . What better location to celebrate this important recurrence, and the community gathering each year for the Conference?
During the conference, the speakers will present 32 papers that address both traditional issues in the regulations and economics of the postal services and the emerging challenges of the sector, such as the funding of Universal Service Obligations, postal costs, the evolution of regulation for parcels and Universal Service Providers. Focusing more on the new trends and emerging challenges, they will also debate the role of e-commerce platforms in the delivery sector; last-mile regulation; the promotion of sustainable development of the industry, and the impact of Covid-19 on posts and logistics.
The discussion will be enriched by three keynote speeches delivered by Giacomo Lasorella, President of the Italian National Regulatory Authority (AGCOM); William Kovacic, Professor of Law at George Washington University (USA); and Petros Galides, Deputy Commissioner at the Cyprus National Regulatory Authority (OCECPR).
