Seapex 2021 To Honor Late Seapex President Jack Congrove
2021 September 10, 11, 12
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.

Visit the website (http://seapexshow.org) for both in-person and virtual exhibit prospectus and application, event schedule, exhibit listing, links to the hotel, and other details. Also visit us on Facebook: Seapex: Seattle Philatelic Exhibition.

It does look like SEAPEX will happen this year!

Perhaps not quite as big as we were hoping, but we currently expect 173 frames of exhibits and 20 dealers at the show.

For those who cannot attend in person, the presentations will be streamed online and there will be additional exhibits on the website. Many of the "virtual" exhibits are already online.

Also, per the recent announcement by Governor Inslee, all attendees will be required to wear a mask while inside the venue.
