3. Catalog Day on Capitol Hill 

Following the opening afternoon on April 8th of sessions with government and postal officials, and others with skin in the catalog/e-commerce sectors, all attendees will storm Capitol Hill on April 9th to meet with members of Congress. There, you will be given a chance to explain to key legislators the dire needs for postal reform and Federal remote sales tax legislation, as both directly impact your business.

5. Step Up & Impact Your Future

The sessions of April 8th & 10th at the National Catalog Forum are a working meeting. Unlike other industry conferences, come prepared to speak up and help shape your business’s future. Our presenters also seek your input to shape how they will potentially impact your catalog business. Then when you meet with 

Congress on April 9th, you’ll also have an opportunity to influence their future decisions by sharing your concerns. And don’t forget our two amazing receptions: April 8th Welcome Reception at the Washington Court Hotel from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, and the April 9th VIP Reception in the incredible Gold Room at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, which will attract dozens of Congressional decision makers all eager to chat with you.
