MIDPEX 2021 UPDATE
Please see below update regarding Midpex 2021 from show organisers. The show is sponsored by PTS Member Cavendish Philatelic Auctions.
The prospects for this year’s MIDPEX, sponsored by Cavendish Philatelic Auctions Ltd. are still looking good. Capacity has been limited to 70 Dealers and 40 Specialist Societies to ensure social distancing.
Organiser, Steve Harrison, commented “Dealers are showing increasing confidence in our plans with more now signed up. If the current progress continues with the vaccination programme and cases remain low, there should be no problems in holding the event. 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.”
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.
It 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.
