Even before this year’s World Stamp Show began in New York City on May 28, preparations for the next once-in-a-decade international philatelic exhibition were already well underway.
Boston 2026, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center on May 23-30, 2026, is slated to be the 12th U.S. international philatelic exhibition (its official name is “Boston 2026 World Stamp Show”).
Planning went into high gear on Feb. 12, 2015, when the American Philatelic Society Board of Directors voted to accept Boston’s bid to host the 2026 show. Boston is an “especially significant” host city, organizers said, as it will be the focus of activity for the 250th anniversary of the U.S. that year.
Boston 2026 organizers are attending World Stamp Show-NY 2016 for a closed business meeting tomorrow. A kick-off meeting, which is open to the public, will follow on June 4 from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. in Room 1E07 of Manhattan’s Javits Center. Everyone is welcome to attend and learn more about initial show plans.
