This exhibition is a milestone in the history of philately in the UAE, which also coincides with the year of the 50th celebrations. It is vital that we promote the culture of philately, and we are pleased to receive an astounding response from visitors across the world.

Alashram, added: “As an organization committed to initiatives that emphasize the nation’s cultural traditions and values, we see this as an opulent occasion of cultural exchange. It is highly rewarding to witness the vibrant participation of philatelic enthusiasts who are keen on growing their knowledge about postage stamps, as well as exhibitors showcasing their rare collections of postage stamps.”

We are also proud of associating with Emirates Post Group to organize this outstanding exhibition which will in turn, create extensive impacts in philately. The idea to organize a global event to enhance the awareness about philatelic culture is notable, as study and collection of stamps reflect the history of a nation, its culture and people.”

The exhibition organized in conjunction with Expo 2020 supports efforts aimed at enhancing the UAE’s position as an innovative hub and ensures future-readiness.
