Program

Philatelic Programs

The daily program presented herewith is a draft and changes may occur until its final presentation.

Everybody is Invited!

There will be a smörgåsbord of meetings, presentations on different topics and other activities to enable and encourage philatelists to socialize with each other. Some novel concepts are being planned right now to create an atmosphere of fun and excitement for everyone around philately as our social connection, using some of the most modern technologies and techniques to engage attendees. The RPSL hopes to redefine and elevate philatelic gatherings through this celebration.

The philatelic program at the STOCKHOLMIA 2019 exhibition offers close to 200 hours full of information. It covers all kinds of philatelic classes as well as Cinderella. Although the emphasis is on competitive philately (exhibition), it also offers information to non-exhibitors. You can deepen your expertise on your own philatelic assets or look for new challenges.

There are four themes on the program. These are introduced here:

  • Philatelic Seminars, Congresses and Society Meetings
  • Current Trends
  • Hot Topics
  • Master Classes

Philatelic Seminars, Congresses and Society Meetings

The ABPS Philatelic Congress (the Association of British Philatelic Societies) will be held in the large auditorium (level 6-7) on Thursday and Friday 30-31 May. The theme of the congress is the “Future of Philately”. The World Cinderella Conference will be held on Saturday and Sunday 1-2 June. This is a special occasion to get acquainted to this interesting topic. Other than this, many other ABPS Societies will organise their meetings during the exhibition.
The International Federation of Stamp Dealers Associations (IFSDA) are one of the partners to the exhibition and will conduct their meeting program. The European Academy of Philately (AEP) has also planned a meeting during the exhibition days.

The Royal Philatelic Society London (RPSL) will conduct four official meetings comprising program presentations. The RPSL President Patrick Maselis has invited four internationally recognized members to conduct four presentations:

  • RPSL Meeting 1 on Wednesday 29 May: Mr. Scott Trepel will give a presentation on The Transcontinental Pony Express 1860-1861 – Nineteen Months of Operation and An Eternity of Fascination.
  • RPSL Meeting 2 on Thursday 30 May: Mr. Henk Slabbinck will give a presentation on French Presence in India.
  • RPSL Meeting 3 on Friday 31 May: Mr. Eddie Bridges will give a presentation on The Darmstadt Trials of the Union of South Africa: Controversary and Intrigue!
  • RPSL Meeting 4 on Saturday 1 June: Mr. John Barwis will give a presentation on Maritime Mail Routes from Victoria.

The RPSL presentations will start at 3.00pm and will be conducted in the auditorium and are open to Fellows, Members and their Guests, but of course also as marketing of Society they will be open for the public.

The Global Philatelic Network, as the philatelic partner for the international celebration of the 150th anniversary of The Royal Philatelic Society London is the official auctioneer for the STOCKHOLMIA 2019 Rarity Auction, to be conducted in the auditorium on Saturday 1 June.

Level 3 of the Waterfront Congress Centre is reserved for activities of The Royal Philatelic Society London and the exhibition’s library activities. The society will have a sales stand were merchandise and membership information will be offered. The Expert Committee will be present and demonstrate its competence and expertise. A special area will be allocated for members’ socialising. A President’s Anniversary Display, by Patrick Maselis, at 10 frames will be presented, and another 10 frames selected from the society’s Philatelic Collections. Another selection presented in 8 cabinets will be made from the society’s Museum Collections. Visitors will find a unique literature exhibition of rare RPSL and Crawford Medal Winning literature (10 + 10 cabinets). A reading room with the exhibited philatelic literature and two library presentation rooms will be next door to these activities. It is planned to have lectures, presentations and new book presentations every day. The library activities are planned and hosted by The Association Internationale des Journalistes Philatéliques (AIJP).

The Swedish Philatelic Federation is national philatelic partner and will allocate one meeting room all five days for a philatelic program addressing the Swedish speaking audience.

Current Trends

Current trends in each of the FIP classes will be introduced during the exhibition. Leading experts of their fields will host these 2 to 3 hours sessions. They will shed light on the latest advances in their philatelic disciplines. Not aiming regulations, but presentations of the state-of-the-art exhibits and their creators as well as future trends. These sessions will update your knowledge and give you lots of new ideas for your own work. The hosts of the sessions are:

Traditional Philately Lars Peter Svendsen
Postal Stationery Mike Smith
Revenues Jukka Mäkinen
Postal History Ari Muhonen
Aerophilately Ivar Sundsbö
Thematic Philately Petr Suhadolc
Astrophilately To be named
Open Philately Birthe King
Maximaphily Pascal Bandry
Picture Postcards To be named
Social Philately Karl-Albert Louis

Hot Topics

Numerous speakers will present a great variety of topics in sessions covering practically all aspects of philately as well as all parts of the globe. We will celebrate 140th Anniversary of Bulgarian stamps and 100th Anniversary of the Newfoundland flight, hear about the symbols used on stamps issued by Mauritius as well as civil censorship during the WWII, and learn how to make a good PowerPoint presentation to accompany a display, just to name a few of the lectures. General topics of the sessions are given in the schedule. However, the final program may differ somewhat from this due to further planning of the detailed program.

Master Classes

Do you want to improve your gold medal exhibit into a large gold exhibit? Attend one of the master classes where the absolute top exhibitors tell their secrets how to create the best possible exhibits in different classes. These round table sessions are not really presentations but rather discussions involving experts. Each Master Class is limited to only a dozen people in order to keep them live and informative.

Pre-Opening Party and Vernissage on Tuesday 28 May 3.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.

The exhibition will be open for five days from Wednesday 29 May through Sunday 2 June. Numerous philatelists and “Early Birds” to the exhibition are invited to the Pre-Opening Party on the evening of Tuesday 28 May from 3.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. During this vernissage, the whole exhibition and the philatelic trade will be open, addressing the target groups and guests. Tickets are offered online.
