APS StampShow Meetings and Seminars

It’s time to start planning your get-together with fellow stamp collectors at APS StampShow 2014, to be held August 21–24 at the Connecticut Convention Center, 100 Columbus Blvd., Hartford, Connecticut 06103. (www.stamps.org/StampShow) StampShow is the largest annual event in the United States and should include 125 dealers and participation of approximately 50 groups.

APS StampShow is also the perfect time to share your philatelic knowledge by hosting a meeting and/or seminar (www.stamps.org/SS-meetings-and-seminars). Specialty societies and stamp clubs also are welcome to host a meeting or seminar by simply requesting a room (www.stamps.org/SS-Group-Participation). In addition, reservations can be made for a table to distribute club/society information.

Meeting and seminar rooms and audiovisual equipment are provided free of charge, as available. Reservations are due May 1, 2014 by submitting the online form or requesting a printed form from the APS.

Participating chapters and affiliates also may take advantage of reduced advertising rates in the official show program and/or the show issue of The American Philatelist (www.stamps.org/SS-Society-Advertising).

The headquarters hotel is the Marriott Hartford Downtown, 200 Columbus Blvd., Hartford 06103. By requesting the APS’s room block, the rate will be $149/night plus 15% tax. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-249-8000 or 877-901-6632.
