                   NOTOS 2021 EUROPEAN PHILATELIC EXHIBITION
                                    OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

On  behalf  of  the  Organising  Committee,  I  have  the  honor  to  officially  announce  that  NOTOS  2021  is scheduled  to  be  held  in  Athens,  Greece,  from  19  to  22  November  2021.  Being  a  Continental  Exhibition, NOTOS  2021  has  already  applied  for  and  received  the  FEPA  Patronage,  which  was  approved  at  the  2018 FEPA  Congress  in  Prague.  It  has  also  applied  for  and  will  soon  obtain  the  FIP  Recognition  as  well.

The AIJP  (International  Association  of  Philatelic  Journalists)  and  the  AEP  (European  Academy of Philately) have already expressed their support to the exhibition by also granting their Patronage.

The philosophy behind NOTOS 2021 is pretty much the same as the one of its predecessor in 2015: “High philatelic  standards  coupled  with  very  low  exhibitor’s  fees”.  The  event  will  spread  out  to  at  least  2000 (16-page)   frames   and   accommodate   all   Classes,   including   Open,   Modern, Postcards   and   Digital Literature.  The  7000  m2   venue  is  very  close  to  a  Metro  station,  which  in  turn  is  less  than  15  minutes away  from  the  Athens  city  centre.  The  weather  in  November  in  the  nation’s  capital  is  usually  wonderful and we shall be delighted to welcome our exhibitors and visitors assuring them a memorable event.

NOTOS 2021 website (hps.gr/notos2021) is up and running as early as March 2018. You will find there all the  details  you  may  need.  For  your  convenience,  it  is  in  English,  French,  German  and  (of  course)  Greek.

The   website   is   continuously   updated,   so   please   spread   the   word to  encourage our fellow  philatelists to register in order to be able to receive first hand information.

All  45  European  Federations,  will  be  invited  to  appoint  a  National  Commissioner  and nominate  Jurors.  However,  it  is  still  quite  early.  Our  formal  request  on  that  with  all  the  necessary  details will reach you in 2019, sometime in early autumn.

Although  the  Federations outside  Europe  are  not  entitled  to  a  National  Commissioner in  NOTOS  2021,  we shall  welcome  any  exhibits  which  are  strongly  related  to  Europe.  We  shall  also  welcome  all  Philatelic Literature exhibits on any subject whatsoever.

For  the  time  being,  I  would  appreciate  if  you  forwarded  this  e-mail  to  your  affiliated  societies  and  to individual  philatelists  of  your  country.  I  would  also  be  grateful,  if  you  published  some  of  this information in your newsletters/journals or upload it on your website.

Our success depends a lot on your trust and support!

Please feel free to contact me at any time.
