Chairman of the board of directors of the Egyptian Post Office, Eng. Khaled Negm inaugurated the exhibition along with Dr. Eng. Sherif Samra, President of the Philately Society of Egypt. There were many notable guests from the Ministry of Telecommunication and the Ministry of Antiquities as well as a representative from the Arab League.
The exhibition displayed a large collection of various classifications. Some of them has been exhibited internationally. The number of exhibitors was 23 including the post office. Unfortunately, exhibitors from each of Iraq, Algeria and Saudi Arabia informed us that they were unable to attend at the last minute.
We were allocating a number of frames for youth, however, only one was ready to show his collection and was awarded.
At the end of the event, a gala dinner at the Automobile club in Downtown Cairo was held to grant awards and distribute exhibition souvenirs with the attendance of Dr. Eng. Sherif Samra
