Registration for the next Virtual Stampex has opened at stampex.vfairs.com.
Organizers with the Philatelic Traders’ Society (PTS), a U.K.-based dealer group similar to the Canadian Stamp Dealers Association, will welcome collectors back to the online show from May 4-6.
“We have some new concepts, including philatelic matchmaking and philatelic roundtables, new and improved video chat functionality, a new ‘Talks’ schedule and so much more,” according to a statement from the PTS.
As of mid-February, organizers are still accepting booth applications from dealers, who must be PTS members.
With text and video chats available for both collectors and dealers, show-goers will be able to interact in new ways throughout the three-day show.
A new “matchmaking” service will also match show-goers with relevant dealers and collectors for business and social purposes by asking them three questions.
In the coming weeks, organizers will announce the 10 “Stampex Talks” presentations plus the show’s award-winning exhibit display.
