18-21 September - WIPA 2008
430 exhibitors presented their philatelic treasures at the 2008 Vienna International Postage Stamp Exhibition. The exhibits of the Austrian State Printing House OESD proved to be a veritable drawing card attracting large audiences.
The many postal companies represented at the Fair displayed a keen
interest in the exhibits and ideas, with dealers admiring the rare
items shown such as the UEFA EURO 2008 European Championships Stamp
adorned with Swarovski crystals or a scented stamp from Qatar.
Philatelists loved the chance to use an old star press to produce their
own prints. Above all, the exhibition on "Decorated Stamps of OeSD" and
the depiction of the process involved in "How a Stamp Is Produced"
proved extremely popular.
"For the Austrian State Printing House, the future of the stamp has
only just begun," said CEO Reinhart Gausterer, "as we have been
focusing on the production of top-quality artistic stamps for the
domestic and international markets for years now:" Together with the
Austrian Post Of-fice and Xerox, a "My Stamp Street" was set up
offering thousands of visitors the unique chance to purchase a
self-adhesive stamp featuring their own portrait.
The extensive and attractive event schedule culminated in a
“Gautschfeier” (book printers old tradition to acquit themselves from
sin) presented by OeSD. Close to 700 invitees and visitors were
enthralled by the venerable custom of book printers.
