This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Hastings Stamp Collectors Club and the 80th anniversary of the Hawke's Bay Philatelic Society. To mark these significant anniversaries, a National Stamp Show is being held in the Hawke's Bay.
Baypex 2014 will take place from 14 to 16 November 2014 at the Pettigrew Green Arena in Taradale, Napier. Hawke's Bay is home to the twin cities of Hastings and Napier, known for their fine wine, Art Deco architecture and stunning weather.
According to info got by StampNews.com, to commemorate Baypex 2014, New Zealand Post is issuing an exhibition miniature sheet and exhibition souvenir cover. The unique collectables show the iconic Soundshell from the Marine Parade in Napier.
These special collectables incorporate three stamps from the For King & Empire stamp issue into the miniature sheet.
