The region’s stamp enthusiasts are preparing for the second annual exhibition to honour their favourite, and the world’s most popular, hobby – stamp collecting.
Emirates Post and Emirates Philatelic Association have organized the show to be held at Wafi between March 5 (Thurs) and March 9. Unique stamps from 20 Arab countries will be showcased at the event with exhibits from Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Yemen, Palestine, Sudan, Djibouti and the UAE, taking pride of place.
The unique exhibition coincides with the start of the centenary celebrations of Emirates Post, one of the oldest postal corporations in the region. The event is designed to give a boost to the hobby of stamp-collecting, which is the world's most popular hobby, but is still in its infancy in Arab countries.
Ebrahim Bin Karam, CEO of Emirates Post, said: "Through this exhibition, we want to expose the people of the region to the exciting hobby of philately which has a large following globally.
We are confident this event will provide the right spark to ignite interest in philately among the younger generation." Log onto www.arabstampexh.ae for more details.
