These are good recommendations,and thanks Don on the hand shaking talk. As someone who thinks that we are missing alot by lack of human contact I believe that there are better ways to achieve that contact. The hand bump is acceptable and absolutely the hand sanitizer afterward. These are all practical methods to sanitation. Just don't lay the backpack down on the floor when you remove it.

Shouldn't you sanitize elbows after the bump? Or do they make an elbow glove?

Here's what I shared with other WSP show organizers, APS & ASDA:

So far, I've been very impressed with the show and the hotel and their preparations and risk mitigation: temp checks at door, one-way system, mandatory face masks (with freebies for those who forgot), hand cleaning stations, booths & chairs spread out, social distancing reminders, etc

I can't compare the attendance with previous years as this is my first time here, but I've been happy with the customers I've had: serious collectors/exhibitors who have spent much higher amounts compared with most of my shows' average transaction amount.

Most importantly I haven't heard any complaints from dealers or collectors about the "rules" most are happy to attend a show after a 5 1/2 month gap.

This should be used an an example of how WSP shows can work in the current environment.

Landed at Heathrow yesterday and now in day 2 of 14 days quarantine but at least I can reply to visitors to the Virtual Stamp Show:

https://stamps.connectedcommunity.org/home

St Louis Expo, my first time there, exceeded my expectations.

All dealers were happy with results, with one exception.

No complaints from visitors about face masks, social distancing, one-way system, etc.

Only problem was that someone stole all of our free masks on Sunday!

Alex Haimann will be writing an article about the show for Linn's (with photos) shortly.

Steve,

Thanks for the link. I was curious to see how it looked and what procedures were in place.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Is "200 attendees across the three days" a typo?
