Nowadays, one of the problems in Slovakia is relatively strong barrier between science and business. The possibility how to cope with this barrier is to develop innovation potential with support the creation and presentation of new knowledge and their transfer into business. Our aim is to create forum for meeting and discussion of postal businesses representatives, academics and researchers. We believe that 12th annual international conference POSTPOINT, which will be held on 23 – 24 October 2017 in Žilina (Hotel Holiday Inn), will provide a forum for discussion on creating conditions for sustainable development of postal sector. Your presence at the conference, your experience with mentioned issues as well as presentations will contribute to quality of the conference and reciprocal exchange of knowledge, which then can be used in educational and research activities, as well as in postal operators’ activities.
