Successful BPP attendance at the Essen fair

The expertisers’ stand at the 24th international stamp fair in Essen from 8 to 10 May 2014 was once more an attraction for many collectors and dealers who wanted to go with their treasures for identification purposes or who just had general questions about expertising.

Over 200 consultations during the three days show the great interest of the public in this free service by the BPP, supported by the management of the fair who provided an ideally located, easily accessible stand. “For many visitors it is an absolute highlight, to speak personally with Mr Schlegel. I think that is a real asset of this great event” BPP President Geigle stated. His Board colleague Tworek, the long-standing fair organiser of the expertisers’ federation, was present during all the three days of the event. “Our expertisers are active at fairs with great commitment. The personal contact with our expertising clients is very important, to gain some insight into their needs and problems.”

For the BPP were there were Tobias Huylmans, Hansmichael Krug, Volker Mehlmann, Dr Hans-Karl Penning, Hans-Dieter Schlegel, Rolf Tworek and Michael Wieneke. We are very grateful.

BPP Expert wanted!

As a specialized collector, have you ever toyed with the idea of using your knowledge to be an stamp expert? Or have you ever been annoyed by an expert and thought: what he can do, I can do at least as well!

Advanced training seminar for BPP Experts in Pullach

The sun was rare this weekend, but instead it rained almost continuously in Pullach near Munich when eight BPP examiners gathered for a further training seminar at the “Hotel Seitnerhof” on 21 and 22 July.

The two lecturers, President Christian Geigle and Vice President Dr. Peter Provinsky, galloped with them through the newly created “Auditor’s Handbook” with its many regulations, in which the BPP regulates the work of its members, their relationship among themselves and their duties towards the association.
