Overseas Exhibitions

There’s more than the United Kingdom to consider if you want to exhibit nationally. It’s a worldwide hobby and there are also specialist exhibitions to visit.

These include:

ECTP (European Championship for Thematic Philately), More Information can be found at FEPA News.

Further information on future ECTP competitions can be had from UK delegate to the FIP Commission for Thematic Philately (Lesley Marley). See the British Thematic Association.

Exphimo is organised every year in Mondorf-les-Bains by the Federation of Luxembourg Philatelic Societies for thematic exhibits from European entrants in one or two different thematic categories each year by rotation.

Eurothema, organised every other year since 2001 each second year brings together thematic exhibitors from Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Denmark, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands together in a competitive challenge organised in turn by each country. The last was 2009 in Denmark.

Nordia takes place every year in a different Scandinavian country.

The American Philatelic Society holds more than 30 “national” exhibitions during each year ending up in true American fashion with the Champion of Champions at the end of every season. The biggest of these shows are probably NAPEX, Chicagopex and Westpex, expect a great welcome if you apply to exhibit, and see the APS website for further details.
