2011 Indipex, the World Philatelic Exhibition, brought the international stamp collecting community together to celebrate philately on a global scale.
Showcasing some of the rarest stamp collections in the world, 2011 Indipex provided a unique meeting platform for collectors, dealers, designers, printers and postal administrations.
The exhibition took place in New Delhi, India between 12 and 18 February 2011. New Delhi has a rich historical past, and today is a bustling, cosmopolitan city that has played host to a number of successful international events. Spread over an area of nearly 3,000 square metres with participation from 70 countries, Indipex 2011 attracted upwards of 100,000 visitors.
In honour of this substantial philatelic event, New Zealand Post issued a special miniature sheet and miniature sheet first day cover. The miniature sheet incorporated three New Zealand Scenic Definitive stamps issued in 2010 – showcasing Mitre Peak in Milford Sound, Queenstown and Lake Rotorua. The stamps were set against a backdrop depicting the TSS Earnslaw plying the waters of Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand’s South Island.
