Stampex, one of the UK's largest stamp shows, was held from 19th to 22nd of February at the Business Design Centre in London.
Stampex is held twice yearly and organized by the Philatelic Traders Society. The show attracts some significant interest from its key audience having garnered an excellent reputation for its diversity and quality of its collection.
The exhibition is an important event in the philatelic calendar and one which is open to anyone interested in stamps, postal history and other related items. Two shows are held during the year - one in autumn, the other spring.
The attendance at Stampex provides postal authorities with the opportunity to promote their current stamp issues. The show is a great meeting place not only for collectors and trade customers but also security printers, stamp and coin suppliers, stamp designers, and the media.
All the participants at the exhibition enjoy meeting with existing and prospective collectors and trade customers who attend from around the globe.
