In 2022 the Calgary Philatelic Society (CPS) is 100 Years old. To celebrate a National Level show CPS 2022 BNAPEX is being held in conjunction with the annual BNAPS convention (BNAPEX) over the Labor Day weekend from 2 - 4 September. This show will NOT be exclusively BNA, as it has also acquired the rights to hold a NATIONAL LEVEL EXHIBITION concurrent with this show, which has been sanctioned by the RPSC (Royal Philatelic Society of Canada). With the addition of National judging for the show, Exhibitors entered in the National show category will be eligible to go to the Champion of Championsshow to compete at an international level. Attendees will have the opportunity to come and help make our 100th Anniversary a great party.
Planning has been ongoing since 2020 with the acquisition of the venue - Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Calgary. Using the menu at left, the Hotel can be booked on the Accomodations page, Exhibits can be submitted on the Exhibiting page and Registrations can be done on the Registration page.
COVID-19: Presently there are very few COVID-19 restrictions in Alberta other than hospitals and senior's homes which require masks. Flying within Canada has no restrictions other than masking and being vaccinated, and International flight passengers must show proof of vaccination and mask at the airport. As none of us has a crystal ball to know what will be happening in 4 months we will be observing regulations and follow all rules in place. For those concerned about their travel tickets and accommodations, note that our hotel the Hyatt Regency has a cancellation policy of 29 July for a Full refund and no penalty, but has a One Night penalty if cancelled AFTER 29 July. It will still be best to book now and cancel later if you have concerns. Many airlines presently allow refunds or credits for flights booked as they have relaxed rules for tickets. It is suggested to check with your airline when making a booking to determine its refund policy. Within Canada the airlines presently offer refunds, credits, changes and cancels on ALL of their fares until April 30, 2022. The airline rules could change at any time.
