Malaga, Spain "acted as a magnet" for stamp collectors from all over the world with the celebration of the World Stamp Exhibition according the Spanish newspaper, SUR.

Reporter Rafael Cortés writes that the exhibition was held in the open air, with "marquees and stands taking over the city centre" and turned Malaga’s streets into a "collector’s paradise."

The stamp exhibition brought together some 250,000 pieces from 72 different countries. During her inauguration speech the Minister for Development, Magdalena Alvarez, stressed the “evolution of stamp production to incorporate graphics, colours and artistic tendencies” as well as the use of themes to reflect the concerns of contemporary society, “such as drugs, road safety and solidarity”.
