The Midpex bi-annual philatelic show, sponsored by Cavendish Philatelic Auctions Ltd, will take place in July, with dealers and societies set to be in attendance.
Chairman, Clive Jones, said:
‘Midpex is now one of the biggest stamp shows in the UK. Given there was no Spring Stampex in London this year, this is a great opportunity for collectors to view and buy some great items. It is also an important opportunity for national and regional societies to showcase their activities and publications and recruit members. Everyone is really looking forward to the show.’
Midpex was first held in 1995 and attended by stamp collectors from across the UK. It brings together specialist societies with local, national and international dealers covering all aspects of philately.
Organiser, Steve Harrison, commented:
‘Dealers are enthusiastic about the show and many of them, as well as the specialist societies, have confirmed they are taking part with over 50 dealers booked and 30 specialist societies taking part. This is very encouraging and now shows that Midpex is well established in the philatelic calendar.’
The event provides an opportunity for societies to showcase their sphere of interest to other collectors, to recruit members and identify common ground with members of other societies.
It also provides an opportunity for societies to promote their publications and research projects and for members to meet informally, particularly those members who find it difficult to get to meetings in London.
The event in 2023 has expanded with space for postcard dealers as well as stamps, thematics and postal history.
Midpex 2023 takes place at the Warwickshire Event Centre, Leamington Spa, CV31 1XN on 1 July from 10am to 4:30pm.
