Welcome to the 62nd Annual Combined Philatelic Exhibition of Chicagoland

Exhibiting at COMPEX

COMPEX exhibiting is organized differently from what one may be used to at an APS-sanctioned World Series of Philately show (COMPEX is NOT a WSP show). COMPEX exhibits come from the members of the seven member clubs along with members of invited organizations. At this time, COMPEX exhibiting is not open to other participants.

We invite COMPEX visitors to take a look at the many exhibits that will be set up at the show. Some of them have won high-level awards at shows around the country and the world. They range in subject matter, expertise and value. It's a great way to see what others collect and wish to share with a broader audience. For those who have not yet started exhibiting, it's an opportunity to see various exhibiting techniques and subject matter. 


A list of the exhibits and a map will be provided in the show program.

To learn more about exhibiting in general, we invite you to visit the website of the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors.
