The world's first international stamp exhibition was held in Vienna, Austria. The first international stamp exhibition was held in Vienna from November 13 to 20, 1881. Several philatelists from different countries exhibited their stamps at the same time, thus creating the history of the International Stamp Exhibition.
Since then, international stamp exhibitions have also been held in Antwerp, Belgium and London, England. After the establishment of the international Philatelic Federation in 1926, it began to formulate and improve the rules of the stamp exhibition, and required all member organizations to strictly implement them. Since then, the scale of the International Stamp Exhibition has been expanding, and the number of exhibits is also increasing. The enrichment of the content, the improvement of the level and the expansion of the influence of the stamp exhibition have effectively promoted the exchange of the International Stamp Exhibition and the development of philatelic activities, and have become a grand event of philately.
