PTS announces first ever live auction to launch at Stampex autumn 2022

The Philatelic Traders’ Society announces the launch of a brand-new concept for Autumn Stampex 2022, the first ever Live Auction which will be held by one of their members during the show itself.

The tender for the Stampex Live Auction Partner will open on the 7th of December 2021, with the winner being revealed during London 2022.

The Philatelic Traders’ Society are constantly exploring innovative and exciting show additions to enhance visitor experience. They have worked hard over the last few years to ‘put the X back into Stampex’, for example introducing Virtual Stampex and online components, a Collectors Lounge, the new Digital Zone, Stampex Talks in the Auditorium, Live Postcrossing Events and an enhanced Youth Zone. The Stampex Live Auction will further this progression and revitalize the experience for show guests.

Simon Carson, Chairman, commented:

‘We regularly get approached by businesses asking if they can host an auction at Stampex and for years we have held back. However, we know from other international exhibitions that auctions add buzz and excitement. We are excited about adding this initiative into Stampex Autumn 2022 and look forward to welcoming everyone to celebrate the first ever event.’

Auction houses are welcome to submit their tenders online from the 7th of December, the deadline for final submission is 31st January. The terms and conditions for auction houses are available here.

For visitors to the show, please sign up to the newsletter to be the first to find out the tender winner and get regular information about the concept prior to the show.
