TEXPEX is the only show in Texas sanctioned by the American Philatelic Society as a part of the World Series of Philately. The winner of the multi-frame stamp and postal history competition qualifies for the national Champion of Champions competition in August. The three-day TEXPEX offers free admission and free parking and takes place at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center, 1800 Hwy. 26 E, in Grapevine.
This year’s show will feature the unveiling of a new version of the five cent Grape stamp. The ceremony will include presentations by the Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association (headquartered in Grapevine, TX) and by the United States Postal Service.
In addition to the free informative seminars, the show includes a special selection of national stamp and cover dealers who bring millions of stamps to the show for serious collectors and beginners alike. The show also features a special postal substation from the Grapevine Post Office with modern stamps and a special souvenir postal cancellation.
Stamp specialty societies will gather at the event including the Texas Philatelic Association (TPA) that will be holding its 120th Annual Meeting, the United Postal Stationery Society (UPSS) and the United States Philatelic Classics Society (USPCS).
Up-to-date information on the show schedule, exhibits, and dealers can be found at www.texpex.org. TEXPEX is presented by the non-profit TEXPEX Foundation and is supported by the TPA and several organizations throughout the Southwest.
