The heart of the stamp scene now beats in Ulm: the International Stamp Fair, for many years the branch’s top annual event at the Sindelfingen Trade Fair Center, will in future present the jagged universe of the fascinating world of stamps at the Ulm Trade Fair Center. From October 27 to 29, 2022, to the great delight of all stamp fans, the event will celebrate its big comeback in the friendly Danube city after the Corona break …

Stamps and letters, postal stationery, postcards, coins, phone cards … at the International Stamp Fair there is pretty much everything that makes the heart of a philatelist beat faster. Also important are the high-quality accessories related to the hobby: from the classic magnifying glass and tweezers to cutting-edge software for the digital collection, the numerous exhibitors at Germany’s largest stamp fair offer the whole range. The scene has been meeting here for over 30 years, surrounded by renowned working groups and philatelic associations. Experienced collectors, as well as curious beginners or re-starters, flocked by the thousands over the three days of the fair until before the Corona forced a break.

Now the International Stamp Fair is making a big comeback. Moreover, since its previous location, the exhibition hall in Sindelfingen, is no longer available, the relaunch will take place in a new domicile, the Ulm Fair.

“We are very pleased to be able to invite our exhibitors and visitors to the Ulm International Stamp Fair 2022 at the UlmMesse from October 27 to 29 this year,” says philatelic expert Jan Billion, project manager of the event for Messe Sindelfingen, which remains the trade fair organizer.

“The Ulm trade fair is tailor-made for our new start. With its location in the pleasant Danube city, situated between Munich and Stuttgart, it is wonderfully accessible for our visitors and exhibitors by car as well as by train and streetcar. Sufficient parking spaces are available directly at the trade fair center. The trade fair center with its spacious, flexible exhibition landscape is also perfect for the impressive presentation of philatelic exhibits as well as for the diverse supporting program.”

The character of the event, according to the trade show organizers, will of course continue in Ulm with the usual top quality. This is also due in large part to the commitment of the Landesverband Südwestdeutscher Briefmarkensammlervereine im Bund Deutscher Philatelisten e. V. (LSW): the ambitious supporting program will be organized by the LSW with immediate effect. Billion: “Both the exciting international competition ‘Postgeschichte live’, in which one can win the coveted ‘Golden Posthorn’ with post-historical exhibits, and, for example, the special stamp exhibition REMSMA with youth class, organized by Briefmarkenverein e.V. Remseck/Neckar, will take place in Ulm. The attractive special postmarks for the exhibition and the popular youth days of the Landesring Süd-West der Deutschen Philatelisten-Jugend e. V. are also planned again.” The working groups will also be on site again.

The charm of the beautiful Danube city with the highest church tower in the world, everyone involved is sure, will do its part as a backdrop for the fair. For friends of collecting fun, the comeback of Germany’s largest stamp fair is wonderful news. Preparations for the event are already in full swing.

The Ulm International Stamp Fair will be held Oct. 27-29, 2022, at the UlmMesse, Böfinger Str. 50, 89073 Ulm, Germany, and will be open Thu and Fri 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat 10 a.m.-4 p.m. A day ticket is available at the cash desk at a price of 5 euros.
