The first three firms selected to hold major auctions during World Stamp Show-NY 2016 are Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Daniel F. Kelleher Auctions and Auktions­haus Christoph Gaertner.

World Stamp Show-NY 2016 is an international exhibition taking place May 28-June 4, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City.

“More than 121 dealers are planning to attend WSS-NY 2016,” show officials said in the fifth quarterly newsletter, issued in late August. “They include businesses from 17 countries: USA, Canada, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and the United Kingdom. The list continues to grow.”

The newsletter is posted in PDF format on the show website at www.ny2016.org/images/ny2016newsletters/2014-08-newsletter5.pdf.

Work to advance the show is continuing behind the scenes, according to show president Wade Saadi, including negotiations regarding International Federation of Philately (FIP) patronage. The show’s press release notes that those discussions “have taken disappointingly longer than expected.”

The newsletter also includes information contributed by the event’s executive director Donna Richardson, who reports about the costs for New York City guest accommodations currently under consideration.

Additional details about the show are available in the quarterly newsletter online, and throughout the show’s recently renovated website at www.ny2016.org.
