Help Us Rename the Annual APS Show

Help Us Rename the Annual APS Show

The APS needs your help for an important project: creating a new name for the APS stamp show, which is the biggest national philatelic convention of the year

Beginning with the 2020 show in Hartford, the annual American Philatelic Society stamp convention will be a joint show with the American Topical Association and the American First Day Cover Society. In the past, the annual show has been called StampShow, StampShow / National Topical Stamp Show, StampShow/NTSS, and other variations on these themes. We need your helpful suggestions to create a new and permanent name for the yearly show.

The APS will be collecting responses through a Google poll until Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. After this date, the APS will prepare a poll to vote on the top name suggestions.

We value your input and welcome multiple suggestions for the new name.

Submit your responses here.
