April 2019 - Stampex International Launch Stampex Talks
The Philatelic Traders’ Society is delighted to announce the launch of the Stampex Talks; a series of informal talks hosted by some of philately’s leading experts and held at Stampex International from 11-14 September 2019. With two talks per day, at 11am and 2pm, the full schedule will be announced in due course with current speakers including Stamp Collector Magazine, The Royal Philatelic Society, Stanley Gibbons & The Philatelic Traders Society. With 8 talks to attend over the 4 days it should really add a buzz to the show. “Over the last few months we have been looking at several ways to bring the exhibition element of philately back into Stampex. Visitors have enjoyed the small number of talks we have previously hosted and feedback has been that they would like to see more. Stampex Talks will also give some of our PTS dealers the opportunity to share their expertise and services. We are delighted to be working with leading organisations within the philatelic community to launch the first series of Stampex Talks this Autumn.” Suzanne Rae, Chairman The Philatelic Traders Society
