The PHILALUX 2011 will be organised jointly by the ‘Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FSPL) and P&TLuxembourg. It benefits from the patronage of the Federation of European Philatelic Associations (FEPA) and is recognised by the Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP).
The patronage of FEPA and the recognition of FIP will make PHILALUX 2011 a part of the international philatelic and cultural life and it will create new human relations and deepen existing friendships.
Philatelic exhibitions have a long tradition in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg: the first took place in 1952 and since then, roughly every 10 years, P&TLuxembourg and the FSPL have had the honor of offering to philatelists and the general public an occasion to celebrate the magnificent pastime that collecting postage stamps represents. The last international exhibition of this type in Luxembourg goes back to 1998 with the organization of the JUVALUX philatelic exhibition for youths which exhibitors present at the time still remember today.
The PHILALUX 2011 exhibition will be a unique occasion to measure once again the interest the inhabitants of the Grande Region have for philately.
Very high quality European stamp collections will attract a large and interested public. To generate even more attention from the public and the media, P&TLuxembourg will present a special program of new stamp issues during the exhibition. In addition, the organisers will take advantage of PHILALUX 2011 to launch an extensive communication and promotional campaign relating to philately. This campaign will last more than six months and will target the entire « Grande Region ». The effort in communication about philately together with the presence many postal enterprises and stamp dealers will act as a stimulus for philately.
