Parcel + Post (website) is a niche show targeting postal and courier operators, but also attracts larger retailers.
The show is held annually at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands and is easily accessible from Amsterdam Centraal Station (4 stops).
STIQ visited the show for the first time in 2023.
The show consists of 3 halls and is a relatively small show. There were about 200 exhibitors, ranging from sortation equipment and conveyor vendors to locker manufacturers (plenty of locker vendors!).
Whilst the show is small, it appeared they manage to attract a high calibre clientele or attendees. Or as one exhibitor put it
"This is our best trade show, we have a bigger stand here than at Logimat." (Anonymous)
Here are some images and video snippets from the 2023 show:

We met some Dutch friends at the show: Peter Skov and Herbet Ten Have. (Yes, I am standing on a ladder)
Yes, we also had some time to do a bit of tourism. Amsterdam is a beautiful city with loads of heritage. Now, it was a bit misty at times. Picture from Amsterdam Centraal Station.
