The ABPS have revealed that this year's Philatelic Congress of Great Britain will be held at the Jurys Inn Hotel, Birmingham from Thursday, 8 September to Sunday, 11 September.
The theme of the Congress is going to be 'Organised Philately' – how our hobby is organised in different ways.
During the event there will be input from local societies, specialist societies, national societies, international societies, the philatelic trade and international philatelic organisations demonstrating what each type of society or organisation brings to the hobby - and displaying what is collected!

Other Societies taking part will include:
- The Royal Philatelic Society London

The Kay Goodman Lecture will be given by Bill Hedley, the current President of FEPS who will give an international perspective. There will also be presentations by The Philatelic Traders’ Society and others.
Although Congress is spread over four days, it is possible to attend as a day visitor if there are any particular areas of interest.
