07.10.2016 - Leverkusen invites you to visit RHEIN-RUHR-POSTA 2017

(hs) It’s still months away, but a bit of anticipation will not hurt. Therefore already now some information about RHEIN-RUHR-POSTA 2017, a philatelic event that will take place in the German town of Leverkusen, to be exact from 31 March until 2 April 2017. The organisation is in the hands of the ‘Verband der Philatelisten in Nordrhein-Westfalen‘, an association that has joined forces with no less than five other organisations; ‘Briefmarkenfreunde Leverkusen’, ‘Briefmarkenfreunde Monheim’, ‘Briefmarkenfreunde Opladen’, ‘Briefmarkensammlerverein Bayer’ and the ‘Gemeinschaft für Gegenwartsphilatelie’.
The venue where RHEIN-RUHR-POSTA 2017 will be held is ‘Forum’ in the city centre of Leverkusen. The Lord Mayor of Leverkusen will act as the Patron of the event. It is still possible for collectors to apply for participation in the exhibition: the deadline expires on 31 December of this year. During RHEIN-RUHR-POSTA 2017 there will be a number of meetings held by German clubs and study groups. Stamp dealers will also be present.
The exhibition centre ‘Forum’ is next to the train station ‘Leverkusen Mitte’, where not only the railway trains stop, but also line 6 of the ‘S-Bahn’ and the regional lines 1 and 5. Parking space is available in the ‘Forum’ building.
