A postcard ‘Poseidon adventure’

One of the most important international postcard fairs in Europe is being held in Belgium in May.

The 26th European Postcard Fair is being held at the Poseidon Ice Rink in Brussels on Sunday May 14.

Spokesman Xavier Languy said: “Our fair is located in a very large and comfortable space at the Ice Stadium, where we’ve been since 2011. Last year we had about 65 dealers – of whom one in four were foreign – manning 300 metres of tables.

“We had about 400 visitors. Despite this relatively small number, the fair is very well known for a big turn-over especially among dealers. It’s much more international than local.

“The Belgian dealers have opportunities there to sell foreign cards and subjects and the foreign dealers find plenty of good stuff.  Our fair attracts big spenders.”
