PHILATELIC CONGRESS OF GREAT BRITAIN
Maintaining a long tradition, the ABPS organises each year the Philatelic Congress of Great Britian.

Held at a different venue annually, Congress is the opportunity to meet with fellow collectors for a relaxing few days in pleasant surroundings.The events include discussions, displays and visits, plus the ever-enjoyable Congress Banquet.

The highlight for many is the occasion at which both the Congress Medal is presented, and the new signatories to the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists are invited to sign the Roll. More often than not, this is linked with a reception hosted by the town or city in which the Congress is held.

Other organisations, particularly the major stamp auction houses, also often host special events during the Congress.

Congress provides an ideal way of enjoying oneself in the company of fellow collectors.
