More than ten postal administrations from the whole world, mints and over 200 dealers in post stamps, coins, banknotes, postcards, minerals, and other collector´s articles will be heading for Prague this week to be present at the Sberatel fair, which takes place on Friday, September 6, and Saturday, September 7. Traders can buy a special “trader´s ticket” which will permit them to visit the fair already on Thursday, September 5, in the afternoon, and at any time during the event. You will find a complete list of exhibitors here and the accompanying here. And what interesting experiences can you have in Prague during the fair? You will find food, drink, shopping, and sightseeing tips here!
Do you collect vinyl records?! Then you should visit the specialized Vinyl & Stereo Expo fair, an event accompanying the Sberatel fair on Saturday, September 7. There will be traders from the Czech Republic as well as from abroad, including Germany, Austria, or France, who will bring to Prague top-notch collector´s items, such as rare or signed records. The event features a special segment dedicated only to metal music – Rock & Metal Market. If you register at www.vinylexpo.cz, you will be admitted to both events free of charge.
The premiere of a post stamp with the renovated Lockheed Electra 10 A airplane, which the shoemaking tycoon Jan Antonín Baťa was using in the 1930s, or a mock-up of the record-holding gold coin (second largest in the world) weighing 130 kg, which the Czech Mint manufactured for the Czech National Bank – these are just two examples of the rich programme that will accompany this year´s Collector fair throughout its two days. Have a look at the events of this year´s fair – you will find the complete programme here.
The sale will start on Friday 6 at 10AM; as organizers anticipate a high level of interest among collectors, they have reserved Hall 6 for the whole day. You will also find a number of traders offering the complete series of “0 Euro souvenir banknotes” at the fair. The previous Czech “0 Euro souvenir banknote” issued on the occasion of the 80th birthday of Karel Gott produced a literally frenzied reaction in the Czech Republic, selling for as much as 800 € shortly after release!
Register on our website and exchange the message that you will receive for a regular ticket at the box office. On top of that, you will also get a collector´s calendar for the year 2020 that cannot be bought in normal outlets, and a new post stamp showing the Lockheed Electra 10 A airplane, which the shoemaking tycoon Jan Antonín Baťa was using in the 1930´s.
Buy in advance or right at the gate a “buyers ticket” for EUR 20, and you will be allowed to visit the fair one day earlier, on Thursday, September 5, from 4PM to 7PM, and also on Friday from 9AM. (The exhibition opens for the public at 10AM.) You can order your ticket here.
Prague attracts not only visitors, but also new exhibitors, including, for example, J. A. Sieger company, Post of Tahiti, Aland, Faroe or San Marino Post. All in all, we again expect more than 200 exhibitors from dozens of countries all over the world. The Sberatel fair thus again confirms its position of the largest event for collectors of post stamps, coins, medals, banknotes, postcards, minerals, and other collector´s items in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Vinyl & Stereo Expo will move to a larger hall! The event, which focuses on LP records, CDs, tape cassettes, and hi-fi equipment and accompanies the Sberatel /Collector fair and takes place on Saturday, September 7, is rapidly growing, which is why it will be moved to the larger Hall 6 of the PVA Expo Exhibition Grounds. The Vinyl & Stereo Expo, which will take place for the fourth time, regularly hosts several dozens of traders of records from all over Europe.
Book your place at the autumn Sberatel / Collector in time! The places are quickly filling up and we register, even now, a more than 10-percent increase of interest among companies and professional associations in various collector´s disciplines. You will find the price list and registration form here. The largest meeting of collectors of post stamps, coins, banknotes, postcards and other collector´s items in Central and Eastern Europe will take place in the PVA Expo Exhibition Grounds in Prague on September 6 and 7 (the morning hours on September 5 will be reserved for traders).
The first springtime Sberatel/Collector fair, which took place in the first half of March in the four-star Olympic Congress Hotel in Prague, was visited by more than 3,200 people. They were offered post stamps, coins, banknotes, postcards and other collector´s items by more than 60 exhibitors from all corners of the world, with most of them already booking a place for their stand at the next year´s event. A newspiece from the fair which hosted, inter alia, Freddie Mercury´s personal collection of stamps, was air in the evening news programme of the most popular Czech TV, which was excellent publicity both for the event and for collecting in general
