Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the PTS Council have decided to cancel Spring 2021 Stampex at the Business Design Centre. The PTS have also confirmed that, following the success of Virtual Stampex 2020, they will be hosting a second Virtual Stampex from 25-27th March 2021.
Unfortunately, due to the continuing uncertainty around COVID-19 and the amount of time it takes to plan and implement a world class Stampex show, the PTS could not delay this cancellation decision any further. The PTS have not taken this decision lightly. We hope that this clarity now allows our stand holders to join us at the Virtual Stampex event or plan for the next few months knowing that the next Stampex at the BDC is now scheduled for September 2021.
Suzanne Rae, Chair, PTS comments
‘Our long-term vision for the Stampex brand is to ensure it is globally recognised and that it grows and connects philatelists all over the world. Due to the unpredictability of where we will be in February, even with a possible vaccine in place and with a tiered lockdown system, it was impossible to move forward with the show and we have had to make the decision to cancel. This decision is fully supported by the Business Design Centre. It is important to us that we connect face to face and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the Business Design Centre, London in September. In the meantime, we have created an even bigger and better concept for Virtual Stampex so we look forward to seeing you online at Virtual Stampex, live from 25th – 27th March 2021. Virtual Stampex 2020 is still available on demand until the end of the year so please do check it out. Registration is free: https://stampex.vfairs.com’
