Thank you for visiting the World Stamp Show-NY 2016 web site! This once-a-decade event takes place May 28 through June 4 at the Javits Center in New York City. Admission is free.
Designated as a “World Stamp Exhibition” by the Federation International de Filatelie (FIP), WSS-NY 2016 will provide all show-goers with a unique experience combining our passion of stamp collecting with the fun and excitement of everything New York City has to offer.
Start making your plans to attend now!
We anticipate over 250,000 people will pass through the show doors over the eight days. Featuring about 200 dealers selling and buying philatelic material of all kinds, dozens of postal administrations, 3,800 frames of competitive exhibits, a Court of Honor displaying priceless stamp rarities, auctions, seminars, youth and beginner activities, and first day ceremonies sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service and other nations, everyone attending will have plenty to do and see.
Collectors and members of the public are welcome to bring in their stamps, albums, collections, and related items for an informal evaluation with our free “Stamps in Your Attic” service.
Read details covering all aspects of the exhibition on these web pages. We will continue to add content and update information right through the show's conclusion.
Come celebrate stamp collecting with us!
An event of Olympic proportions like this takes hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. More than 20 people are already hard at work organizing the multi-million dollar extravaganza. Many, many more will be be needed by the time May 2016 rolls around. What can you do or contribute to make World Stamp Show-NY 2016 a reality? Just let us know by sending an email or letter.

This site will be expanded over the coming months and years to inform the worldwide collecting community of the many plans, activities and events in store for visitors.
