Full details can be found at https://stamps.org/STAMPSHOW-SS?gclid=CjwKCAjw1ZbaBRBUEiwA4V ... KsQAvD_BwE but here are some of the highlights :
Over 160 different exhibits spread over more than 900 frames will be on display. Included are the thirty exhibits competing for the annual Champion of Champions Award given the best exhibit from among those that won at one of the regional APS stamp shows over the past year.
Over 100 dealers in the exhibition bourse from around the USA and beyond. The USPS will have a concession area and the exhibition will host the first day ceremony for the new Dragons stamps on Thursday 9 August. Auctions will also be held by Harmer-Schau on each of the four days of the exhibition.
Over 40 different philatelic societies will be holding their annual meetings during the convention, and many of these meetings will be open to the public. The APS is also organizing several talks on a variety of philatelic subjects during the course of the event.

And of course best of all (in my opinion), the show is being held here in Columbus! For those who only think of Columbus, even if it comes to mind, as Ohio State Football and nothing else, there is so much more to this city and I am so happy it once again has the opportunity to host the Stampshow and show itself off. A little taste of which you can see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y72eT-XTg3U
I happen to have a vacation week scheduled for the week of the show (I go back to work full time starting this Sunday 15 July at 05:00, lucky me ) and plan to be at the show all four days. Just curious how many others plan to come and of course if you have any questions about Columbus please please feel free to ask
