 NZ2023 International Stamp Exhibition, Auckland 


NZ2023 is to be held on 4-7 May 2023 and will be the first international stamp exhibition held in New Zealand since the successful NZ1990 World Stamp Exhibition. Due to COVID-19 and the closing of our borders, the NZ2020 international stamp exhibition became a much smaller national exhibition in March 2020 and closed a day early. 


It is therefore with great excitement the exhibition organisers welcome international visitors to this event. 


To be hosted by the Ellerslie Event Centre, Auckland, NZ2023 is being held under the patronage of the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately. 


A wide range of dealers and postal agencies is expected to be in attendance. If you would like to provide financial support for NZ2023, you can join the supporters’ club. For further information, visit 


NZ Post is the major sponsor of both exhibitions and will have staff and a sales booth with special souvenirs and postmarks available. Mark the dates on your calendar - we look forward to seeing you there.
