 Registration is closed for this event

Are you looking for a way to jump start your morning? Join us for AM AdBuzz, our monthly morning series! Get the inside scoop on where industries are heading and what it means for you. Join us each month for a quick talk on what's next with advertising trends and how to make better decisions for you and your clients, while staying up to date with the AAF DC and networking with our elite membership base!

Join us Wednesday, November 15 at Maga Design's studio to learn how the Postal Service is bridging physical and digital experiences by transforming the marketing channel with the highest response rate: mail. Informed Delivery allows consumers to digitally preview and interact with mail and manage packages while giving advertisers and marketers a new channel with increased targeting and attribution abilities.
USPS Director of Product Technology and Innovation Bob Dixon will share how industry leaders are leveraging this channel and best practices for how you can adopt and create experiential campaigns. A follow-up discussion will be moderated by Design Strategist, Natalie Levy.

After this session, you will be able to create physical to digital campaigns that leverage best practices in how marketers are reaching their customers.
