200 exhibitors are looking forward to visitors! The event’s visitors will include cosmonauts, graphic artists, as well as a tennis legend
As the coronavirus situation resembles a seesaw, it is difficult to predict government measures that may apply in the beginning of September. Based on the last year’s experience, when the Sberatel / Collector fair was the only international collector’s event in Europe, the organizers are in a position permitting them to guarantee maximum possible safety of both visitors and exhibitors, no matter how the pandemic situation may look like.
Even the July fire at the exhibition site did not jeopardize preparations of the 24th Sberatel / Collector fair. The event will take place in the adjacent Hall 2 (see the map). Visitors and exhibitors will actually be better off – the comfortable hall was built only a few years ago.
Again, many new postage stamps, collector’s banknotes, coins and medals will appear for the first time at the fair.
It will also be possible to obtain autographs of graphic artists designing Czech postage stamps, Jan Kodeš, the legendary tennis player and Wimbledon champion, or Vladimír Remek and Ondřej Pelčák, who started training for their space mission 45 years ago.
The Sberatel / Collector fair will also see, for the first time ever, a ceremony during which winners of the “Most Beautiful Czech Postage Stamp of the Year” will be announced and introduced to the “Hall of Fame of the Czech Postage Stamp”.
Visitors will also be able to buy a new collector’s banknote from the “Golden Collection of Václav Zapadlík”, with a motif of the 1941 Škoda Superb 3000 car.
And foreign exhibitors will also bring some new items. The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) stand, for example, will offer a commemorative postcard paying a tribute to Prague’s cafés.
Free appraisals of collections and accompanying events will not be absent
Popular free appraisals of collections offered by the Union of Czech Philatelists, Czech Numismatic Society, Assay Office, Museum of Securities, Collectors’ Club, Club of Collectors of Telephone Cards, Club of Autograph Collectors or expert mineralogist Karel Mařík, will again be available during the event.
The Minerals and Gemstones fair will take place in the same hall and at the same time as the Sberatel / Collector fair. On Saturday, collectors of vinyl records will meet in the adjacent hall for the Vinyl & Stereo Expo and Rock & Metal Market events.
A special ticket will let you in already on Thursday
Both traders and impatient collectors can visit the fair already a day earlier, i.e. on Thursday, September 9, from 4PM to 7PM, and also on Friday, September 10, from 9AM, if they buy a special ticket for CZK 500 (aprox. 25 EUR). The event opens for general public on Friday from 10AM to 6PM and on Saturday from 10AM to 5PM.
The Sberatel / Collector is not only the largest sales fair of collector’s items in Central and Eastern Europe, but also offers an extensive and unique accompanying program every year. Visiting the event is therefore an interesting experience not only for collectors, but also for people who have a collector in their families and look for a gift for him or her, or for families with children.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Since its establishment in 1998, the main goal of the Sberatel Fair has been to build a collecting event in Prague comparable to major trade fairs in Western Europe. Not only collectors are heading to the fair, but also visitors who take collecting as an investment. Only at the fair they can compare the offer of several dozen companies in one place, talk to experts and personally see the offered items. This advantage the Internet can never fully offer.
At the fair, visitors can have their own collectibles valued by independent experts or offer them directly for sale to the traders and auction houses. Every year, the event is accompanied by a rich program and several parallel events with related topics. A trip to the exhibition center is really worth it!
Register on-line and get your ticket, plus a collector´s gift, for just 1 CZK (approx. 0,035 €)!
