The Postal and Delivery Economics Conference celebrates its 30th anniversary!

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?

Any request for additional information on the Conference can be addressed to Chiara Carrozza at chiara.carrozza@eui.eu.
