Verband der Philatelisten in Nordrhein-Westfalen e.V. 2014


European Championship for Thematic


As part of the 27th International Stamp Fair from 11. -

13.05.2017 in Essen, the European Championship for

Thematic Philately (ECTP) will take place again. The

organizers provide it with their routine for years to win

the best thematic exhibits for this high-profile event. For

visitors to the fair it is almost a must to spend a time to

stay in the exhibition area. It's a great way to gain new

impressions and insights and to broaden your horizons.

I thank the Verband der Philatelisten in Nordrhein-

Westfalen e.V.  for outstanding commitment. At the same

time, I wish all participants, exhibitors, visitors and

organizers a smooth process and a lot of success in this
