Capacity has been limited to seventy dealers and forty Specialist Societies to ensure social distancing, and the organisers have confirmed safety will be a priority.

‘Dealers are showing increasing confidence in our plans…all the appropriate procedures will be in place to make the event as safe as possible. I know many collectors are looking forward to meeting up with their philatelic friends.’

What is Midpex

Midpex is the biennial exhibition 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. The venue is the same, although there has been a slight change of name.

The event provides an opportunity for Specialist Societies to show off 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.
