Plans are well underway to turn Boston into the world’s center of philately for eight days in 2026, as the twelfth international philatelic exhibition of the United States gathers at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC). To be held during Memorial Day week (May 23–30, 2026) in the Seaport section of the city, Boston 2026 World Expo will be a significant part of the country’s 250th anniversary festivities.

In a 352,000 square foot contiguous exhibition area, Boston 2026 will be hosting a large dealer bourse, as well as a sizable postal administration bourse, and society presence. There will be a competitive exhibition of approximately 3,500 frames, plus other special/court of honor exhibits, as well as a large literature competition.

We plan on hosting hundreds of meetings and will provide 40 meeting rooms of various sizes for this purpose. A large opening ceremony and closing awards dinner will be staged using the BCEC’s banquet room facilities. Travelers from out of town will appreciate that both Boston’s Logan Airport and Amtrak’s South Station are less than 15 minutes away from the BCEC, and that all show hotels will be within walking distance.

The show organizers believe that a truly international philatelic exhibition requires the sanction of an international governing body. Thus, the organizers are working with the American Philatelic Society (APS) to obtain a patronage arrangement with the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie (FIP). Boston 2026 is also a 501(c)(3) Public Charity, recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.
