IBRA News 27.11.2022 – Stamp Fair Almost Booked Out

This is good news for visitors, but bad news for exhibitors who hestitate to register: the 33rd International Stamp Fair in Essen, which is the commercial part of the World Stamp Exhibition IBRA from 25 to 28 May 2023, is almost fully booked. There are only a few small row stands available, which are suggested to be given away quite soon, looking at the figures of demand. In view of the Corona pandemic, this was not necessarily to be expected. Yet, it is evidence for the rank the Stamp Fair of Essen has achieved over decades.

Visitors will find international commercial offers presumably leaving nothing to be desired. There will be a number of rows of international post office stands around the large stand of the German post office of Deutsche Post. Traders and auctioneers will not only be from Germany and other European countries (Great Britain included), but will also come from overseas: companies from the United States, South Africa, and Australia will travel thousands of kilometers to present their offers in Essen.

Saving the best for last: Entrance continues to be free!
