It will be great to return to in-person shows, especially CAPEX22! Easier to quickly find the exhibit pages that interest you; to find and reexamine the highest scoring exhibits; to purchase stamps and souvenirs from foreign postal authorities. Also nice to be able to talk to anyone you already know or meet for the first time. Always nicer to talk face to face.
Have been to London 2022 and it was a blast! So nice to meet the stamp buddies, the dealers, view exhibits and do all the socializing. Still must be careful with masking and avoiding risky situations, but it can be done. Can’t wait for CAPEX 22, BNAPEX, CANPEX and all the others coming back. CAPEX 22 promises to be the centre of the philatelic universe for those 4 days in June!!!
