Philatelic Show 2024 will take place April 12-14 at the Boxboro Regency Hotel and Conference Center, 242 Adams Place, in Boxborough, Mass.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

A bourse (sales area) of about 38 dealers will offer stamps, covers and postal history from the United States and worldwide, and the show will feature 156 frames of competitive exhibits.

Convening societies at Philatelic Show include the American Air Mail Society, American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors, Canal Zone Study Group, Massachusetts Postal Research Society, Metropolitan Airpost Society, New Hampshire Postal History Society and Universal Ship Cancellation Society.

The American Air Mail Society will offer a series of presentations. On Friday at 11 a.m., David Ball will present “47 Ways to Collect Airmails”; on Saturday at 2 p.m., Michael Wilson will cover “National Air Mail Week, a Big Deal in 1938”; and on Sunday at 10 a.m., Celine Poulin-Lape will discuss “Amelia Earhart: Lost, but Found Forever.”

The Canal Zone Study Group will conduct its membership meeting at noon on Saturday; nonmembers are welcome.

Members of the Boston 2026 organizing committee will have a table in the Parade Room.

An awards banquet will take place Saturday evening. The judges include chief judge Tim Bartshe, William Fort, Hal Vogel, Stephen Suffet and John Hotchner.

Because the Philatelic Show is an American Philatelic Society World Series of Philately show, the multiframe grand award winner is eligible for the Champion of Champions competition at the Great American Stamp Show in Hartford, Conn., Aug. 15-18.

The single-frame grand award winner will be eligible for the single-frame championship at the Chicagopex show Nov. 22-24 in Itasca, Ill.
