The exhibition, which is being held at The Royal Paragon Hall in Bangkok, Thailand, takes place between 2 and 14 August, with the stamps being available to purchase on the day the show commences.

These images feature alongside twenty‘Hello’ definitive sized 1st Class stamps and the sheet will feature the show’s logo as well a ‘Hello from Royal Mail’ greeting in Thai. These are the same stamps as used on the Indipex, Philanippon and Jakarta sheets.

The Thailand 2013 World Stamp Exhibition is being held in collaboration with the Philatelists Association of Thailand, under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. The exhibition will commemorate the 130th anniversary of Thai postage stamps and the establishment of the Thai postal service.

Andrew Hammond, Royal Mail Stamps spokesperson, said: 'Thailand 2013 is set to be a fantastic event, undoubtedly one of the highlights of a year in philately. We are delighted to commemorate the occasion with this special sheet of stamps. As they will be available to purchase from the exhibition itself, they will serve as a great memento for collectors of all ages.'

The Exhibition Sheet is for sale as a complete product only. Stamps and labels cannot be bought separately. The sheet costs £12.50. It is available at the exhibition itself, in main UK Post Offices, or from Royal Mail's website.
