London 2020, the international stamp exhibition to be held at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington from 2 to 9 May next year, is substantially oversubscribed with a huge demand from collectors wanting to exhibit their collections
A spokesperson for the major international event said:
‘So many collectors wanted to exhibit at the event, that an allocation of the available has had to be made. Equally, all the stands have been sold, and there is a waiting list.’
Due to the demand for exhibition space, the philatelic exhibits will be shown in two sections. The first half (Saturday, 2 May to Tuesday, 5 May) will include Postal History, Revenue, Open, Picture Postcards, Postal Stationery, Modern and part of Youth. The second half (Wednesday, 6 May to Saturday, 9 May) will have Championship, Traditional, Aerophilately, Thematic and the rest of Youth. One Frame exhibits will be shown alongside their parent class.
Applications for the Literature and Digital Literature classes can still be made, until 31 December 2019, through National Commissioners in the usual way.
Philatelists from all over the world are being invited to be patrons of the exhibition to support it financially. Details can be found at www.london2020.co/supporters, whilst the entire organisation of London 2020 is being undertaken by volunteers and more are needed; for details visit www.london2020.co/volunteers.
The team behind Stamp Collector are working with the organising committee to publish the official catalogue for the event, which will be included with the special May 2020 issue of the magazine. Watch this space for more details!
