World Stamp Show-NY 2016 - Newsletter 11 Released

World Stamp Show-NY 2016 has issued its eleventh and final quarterly newsletter exactly three months before it opens its doors on Saturday, May 28.  The exhibition runs for 8 days through June 4 at the Javits Center in New York City.
The newsletter is the organization's largest with 12 pages of the latest details about the once-a-decade event.  It may be downloaded directly from http://www.ny2016.org/images/ny2016newsletters/2016-02-newsletter11.pdf
As exhibition president Wade Saadi explains in his opening column, “World Stamp Show-NY 2016 will have something for every collector and in most cases, way more material than you can consume.”
Four of the seven USPS first day of issue releases scheduled to take place are depicted.  News about the UN Postal Administration's Peacekeeper issue with a preliminary image and 65th UNPA Anniversary personalized sheet ceremonies is also referenced.  Show theme days and subjects are now set.
The hotel room rate discounts arranged by the show will end as of April 23 when the properties revert to full price.  Attendees are asked to making reservations now to avoid disappointment.  Maps of the show-sponsored hotels in New York and New Jersey are found at the end of the newsletter.
Preliminary exhibitor details are given for the first time.  There are 4,118 frames among all competitive classes totaling 697 exhibits from 76 different countries.
The 128 attending societies and organizations manning booths and/or sponsoring meetings is believed to be a record number for any international exhibition.  The complete schedule of meetings and events can be found online at http://www.ny2016.org/EventCalendar.aspx.  It is updated regularly.
The dealer and postal administration listing is simply too large to include in the newsletter.  The updated list can be viewed online at http://www.ny2016.org/NY_2016_Dealer_Search.aspx  and http://www.ny2016.org/SubMenu/Postal_Adminstrations.aspx?id=512, respectively.  Collectors are encouraged to contact dealers directly before the show to express their interests.
Full show information is online at http://www.ny2016.org. Send questions to info@ny2016.org and check out show social media site links.
