Fight Off Rising Postal Rates, Push Back Remote Sales Tax Attacks, Storm Congress At National Catalog Forum

Registration is now live for the 11th Annual National Catalog Forum, to be held May 21-23, 2018 in Washington, D.C. As we have in the past, we’re offering an early bird registration period from now until Friday, March 30th only.


Exciting Agenda is in the works and will be announced soon. In the meantime, here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Industry’s challenge to the harm from PRC’s 10-year review proposal
  • Postal strategy to get flats mail (catalogs) costing in check
  • Challenges in the internet sales tax fight, including the latest on the Supreme Court’s impending decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., et al
  • ACMA president’s long-term forecast for catalog marketing in America
  • Multiple networking receptions, and more (full agenda coming soon)…

New This Year – Catalog Day on Capitol Hill While we’ll hold a full day’s worth of sessions, meetings and a reception on Tuesday, May 22nd, all attendees will head for Capitol Hill on Wednesday to meet with members of Congress. There, you will be given a chance to explain to key legislators how postal rates and the possible overturn of the Quill v. North Dakota remote sales tax precedent directly impact your business.

The ACMA Forum is a Working Meeting Unlike other industry conferences, come prepared to speak up and help shape your business’s future. Our presenters approach their time slots as meeting leaders. They’ll seek your input to shape how they will potentially impact your catalog business. Think of it as a town hall on steroids rather than an educational symposium. Then when you meet with Congress, do know they want to hear from you and will take your concerns into consideration in the actions they take.

Hotel Reservations should be made early. We’ve reserved our room block at a special $299/night rate at the DuPont Circle Hotel. The deadline for the discount rate is May 1, 2018, but last year we sold all our rooms out long before the deadline, so don’t delay.
