Joburg 2010 International Stamp Show

The South African Post Office will host philatelists from around the world at the Joburg 2010 International Stamp Show being held from Oct. 27 to 31.

It is the first international stamp exhibition to be hosted by South Africa since 1998 according to the show's co-chairperson, Howard Green.

In an write-up that appears on the website, reporter Ndaba Dlamini pens, "Seasoned stamp collectors and those only recently hooked on the hobby will be able to interact with scores of local and international philatelists and, maybe, add some rare stamps to their collections. According to the organisers, hundreds of members of the international philatelic community from 45 countries will fill up about 5800m of exhibition space."

About 1,500 frames of competitive exhibits with over 20,000 pages of stamps and philatelic material will be on display.

To take part in the stamp show, philatelists can enter the competitive exhibition by filling out a form online by no later than 31 March.
