The Seattle Philatelic Exhibition (SEAPEX), an American Philatelic Society (APS) national-level stamp exhibition, will take place on 10 – 12 September 2021, at the Tukwila Community Center located just north of the SeaTac Airport at 12424 - 42nd Avenue South, Tukwila, Washington.
This year, SEAPEX is honoring Jack Congrove, who in his term as SEAPEX President helped build the show to what it is today. He passed away from cancer early last year. An obituary can be seen on the SEAPEX website at http://seapexshow.org/SEAPEX2020/Ja...ve/jack.html
and another on the ATA web site at https://www.americantopical.org/news/8920219.
The show hours are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM Friday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturday, and 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Sunday. Parking and admission are free.
The show will feature 25 stamp dealers and more than 3,200 pages of exhibits. As a World Series of Philately (WSP) show, the Grand Award winners for the single-frame and multi-frame exhibits will be eligible to compete at the 2022 Great American Stamp Show Champion of Champions competitions against winners from other national WSP shows.
In addition to the in-person show, we will be having a virtual exhibition on the weekend of September 24 -- 26. Exhibits in the virtual exhibition will be judged using WSP standard, but this will not be a virtual WSP show. We are looking into having virtual meetings and/or presentations this weekend as well.
Both the American Topical Association
and the India Study Circle
will be meeting this year at SEAPEX. The Northwest Federation of Stamp Clubs will hold a town hall meeting, and Women Exhibitors is expected to host a forum. Universal Ship Cancellation Society will also meet.
The event will present free activities for youth and educators throughout the weekend. Starting Saturday morning, the show will hold a full-day Scout stamp collecting merit badge workshop.
Experts will be available to provide free stamp evaluations, or what to do with that old stamp collection. The United States Postal Service and United Nations Postal Administration will be on hand to sell current postal items.
The show hotel is the Residence Inn South Seattle/Tukwila at 16201 West Valley Highway, Seattle. The SEAPEX rate for a studio suite is $119. Contact the hotel at (425) 226-5500.
