Many collectors are aware of the existence of SBERATEL, the international philatelic fair that takes place every year in the Czech Republic’s capital Prague. In 2006, the fair was held on15, 16 and 17 September, and with an impressive result. With its 13.655 visitors, SBERATEL can be considered to be a serious contender for entrance in the international ‘Premier League’ of such events. In Prague 214 stand holders, originating from 32 countries, offered a wide and varied range of material.

Thanks to the perfect collaboration between our esteemed AIJP colleague Miroslav Langhammer and the manager of the fair, Dr. Jindrich Jiracek, the AIJP had the possibility to promote itself during SBERATEL. Thanks to this, the AIJP had an opportunity to be present at SBERATEL and the AIJP’s activities were even mentioned in the exhibition’s catalogue! We are of course very grateful for this courtesy.

In issue 2007/1 of the AIJP-bulletin we will be happy to present this interesting and worthwhile fair in a more elaborate way, on which occasion we will also write about the results of a survey that was held during the exhibition; this will give you an interesting insight in the way the visitors of SBERATEL are valuing the event. On 14, 15 and 16 September 2007, the tenth (and jubilee) edition of SBERATEL will take place.
