The applications for the International Philatelic Literature Exhibition IPHLA 2012, to be held in Mainz (Germany) on 2, 3 and 4 November of this year, came from all over the world. After counting carefully, the result was that the exhibits list contained 570 entries. Certainly an outcome that may be qualified as ‘World Record Material’. However, the enormous amount of exhibits certainly posed a challenge for the committee that had to decide whether each entry fulfilled the necessary conditions. With the exception of two exhibits the green light was given to all, although a few had to be placed in the category ‘out of competition’ (hors concours). The result is that IPHLA 2012 will offer its visitors a total of more than 560 exhibits!

Exhibitors will receive the confirmation of their admission by mid-April; then they will also be provided with the information necessary about payment of their exhibit fees and the deadlines and further information regarding the shipment of their exhibits. By the end of April, a preliminary list of the exhibits will be on display on the websit www.iphla.de.
