Spotlight on Societies: Boston 2026

Boston 2026 Logo

All attendees are invited to the Boston 2026 Open House scheduled for Saturday, June 11 from Noon to 1:30PM.  Refreshments will be provided and Organizing Committee members will be available to answer your questions about the show. 

In case you didn’t know, plans are well underway to turn Boston into the world’s center of philately for eight days in 2026.  That is when the twelfth international philatelic exhibition of the United States gathers at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) during Memorial Day week (May 23–30, 2026) in the Seaport section of the city.

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 ~3,500 frames, plus court of honor exhibits and a large literature competition. 

We also plan on hosting hundreds of meetings and will provide 40 meeting rooms of various sizes for this purpose. 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.
