  • Time is running out for scheduling meetings at World Stamp Show-NY 2016. Groups hoping to reserve a meeting room need to take action soon.

Philatelic groups hoping to reserve a meeting room at World Stamp Show-NY 2016 need to take action soon.

Promoters for the international stamp show and exhibition say that only reservations made by Jan. 29 can be guaranteed a listing in the official show program.

World Stamp Show-NY 2016 is taking place May 28 to June 4 at New York City’s Javits Center.

“The show has received an overwhelming response from philatelic organizations around the world requesting space to hold meetings and seminars,” World Stamp Show-NY 2016 reported recently. “As of this time, 111 groups from several countries will be participating, totaling over 210 gatherings and 300+ hours of presentations.”

The show is making what it terms a “final call” for reserving meeting rooms for use during the show.

Rod Juell, the show’s Society and Affiliates chair, reports that the show has 16 rooms available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily that have been filling up.

“Presentations not only for established collectors, but introductory talks that may be of interest to newcomers and casual collectors are especially encouraged,” he said.

Juell suggests that those who have already scheduled events review their online listings for completeness and accuracy. Presentation titles and presenter names, when appropriate, should accompany every event.

Listing updates, room inquiries and questions should be e-mailed to Juell as soon as possible at Complete show information is available online as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
