Background on Stampex International Organised by The Philatelic Traders’ Society Limited, Stampex International is Europe’s number one stamp show and has been running for over 60 years. The show is held at the well known Business Design Centre (52 Upper Street, N1) in London’s vibrant Islington which can be easily accessed by bus or tube (nearest tube Angel, Northern Line) as well as by car or by bus. There is plenty of car parking near to the venue making it easy for a day visit or even longer. There are many bars and restaurants within walking distance of the venue and many hotels close by too, meaning access to The Business Design Centre is even simpler.
Facts and Figures Our last show attracted over 12,000 visitors during the four days it was on. Stampex International is completely FREE to all visitors and makes for a great family day out. All visitors will receive a complimentary Show Guide and Limited Edition Postcard upon arrival. Created specifically for Stampex International and in conjunction with Stanley Gibbons, a Limited Edition Smilers Sheet is also available to purchase at the show (while stocks last). We also welcome a wide range of Societies to Stampex International on the Saturday of every show. For more details on these please get in touch.

There is also the Eurotunnel train if you are arriving in a vehicle or the Eurostar train service which arrives into St Pancras, just a short tube ride away from the venue.

This is a very simple process and takes just a few moments. Please contact The PTS for further information about how to do this.
Dealer Feedback Many dealers at Stampex International have recently reported that the more commonly owned items have been purchased at recent shows, suggesting that new enthusiasts to this much-loved pastime have recently taken the hobby up. The PTS has been working hard over the last few years to heavily promote the hobby to wider audiences and we can see results in our dealers' reports. We have done many visitor and stand holder surveys recently and are constantly looking at ways to evolve our show based on this feedback.
