Application for participation: The entry form is now on-line. Prospective exhibitors are requested to visit hps.gr/notos2015/entry-form/ and submit their application directly to the Organizing Committee. Once submitted, a copy of the completed entry form is e-mailed back to the exhibitor and the National Commissioner (where applicable).
Eligibility for participation:
♦ Exhibitors of the 21 invited NOTOS countries with any kind of exhibit.
♦ Exhibitors outside NOTOS with exhibits related to the European South.
♦ Philatelic Literature exhibitors worldwide with no restriction on the subject.
Expected participation: Eighteen of the twenty-one invited countries have accepted the invitation to participate in NOTOS 2015 and have already appointed a National Commissioner. Hopefully the remaining three will soon follow. Meanwhile, from the messages received, it seems that the exhibition is quite appealing to many collectors outside NOTOS as well.
Prelude to the international exhibition: From 4 to 10 November, in the same exhibition hall, a non-competitive exhibition will take place, namely “NOTOS 2015 Collectables”, which will include a variety of other collectables alongside the philatelic exhibits. Details are uploaded in Greek only on hps.gr/notos2015/el/, where prospective exhibitors can find the relative Guidelines and the Entry Form for participation.
Schedule of events: The principle features of the day-to-day exhibition program have been uploaded on hps.gr/notos2015/events-schedule/. The schedule will be further updated with details as they become available. Readers will observe that the rather unfriendly “Critique” was renamed to “Happy hour at the frames”, a small contribution for a pleasant starting point to this very important exhibition feature.
