Aps Convention in Pittsburgh

This week I am going to the American Philatelic Society Convention in Pittsburgh. STAMPSHOW, as they call their meetings, is the annual meeting, used to be the start of each philatelic year (which generally is reckoned to start in September). The show boasts meetings of the APS brass, seminars and society meetings, the Champion of Champions exhibition competition (where winners of regional competitions vie for the award of best of the best), and one of the largest dealer bourses in the US.
Stamp expositions of all types have become less popular in the Internet age and STAMPSHOW is no exception. Still, there is no physical venue when more things philatelic happen in a shorter period of time. I will be posting my impressions of the show along with my thoughts about stamp shows in general as the week progresses.
