NOTOS 2015 logo: The exhibition logo was unveiled and officially presented on 29 January at the Hellenic Philotelic Society premises. The red needle of a compass, strangely pointing South, interprets easily the Greek word NOTOS into the world’s languages. The natural spectral colours around its pivot point, i.e. the colours of the rainbow, represent the pure radiant light of the sun and the sea of the South. It was created by Ms. Myrsini Vardopoulou, artist-engraver, designer of Greek stamps for more than twenty years, honorary member of the European Academy of Philately (AEP).
The AIJP grants its patronage to NOTOS 2015: The International Association of Philatelic Journalists (Association Internationale des Journalistes Philatéliques, AIJP) granted its patronage to NOTOS 2015. Τhe determination of the OC to produce a very strong accumulation of Philatelic Literature exhibits from all over the world, the fact that one copy only of each exhibit is required and the reasonable exhibitors’ fees were certainly key criteria for granting the patronage.
The AIEP General Meeting 2015 in Athens: The International Association of Philatelic Experts (Association Internationale des Experts en Philatélie, AIEP) have accepted the NOTOS 2015 OC invitation and agreed to hold their 2015 General Meeting in Athens during the exhibition. First it was FEPA, then the AIEP, two leading philatelic institutions have decided to call their annual meetings next November in Athens.
The official exhibition hotel: Amalia Hotel Athens was selected as the official hotel of the exhibition, where Jury members, National Commissioners and other officials will be staying. That same hotel will also accommodate both the FEPA Congress 2015 and the AIEP General Meeting 2015 which will take place during NOTOS 2015.
