Stamp Fair Essen 2022 cancelled!

The International Stamp Fair in Essen planned for May 5-7, 2022, must unfortunately be cancelled due to the Corona pandemic!

The experience of the last months shows that many fairs and other events settle at 50-70 percent of the pre-Corona level – for exhibitors as well as visitors. For a guest organizer at a fairground, who is contractually obligated to accept minimum areas, this level does not provide an economic basis, especially since considerable additional costs are incurred for Corona requirements (e.g. regular test repetition during the fair for unvaccinated exhibitors). The particularly high proportion of foreign exhibitors for Essen is a further problem, because on the one hand it is not possible to estimate who of them will actually be able to travel to Essen in May 2022, and on the other hand because it is precisely here that the organizer has special inspection obligations (e.g. approval of the vaccine).

The next International Stamp Fair is planned together with the World Stamp Exhibition IBRA 2023 from May 25 to 28, 2023, in the south of the Essen Exhibition Center. For up-to-date information, visit
