When i've read the first post of this topic, i was tempted to ask: "Is one of that collection online?", but i think the answer would have been no...
Nothing against philatelic exhibition, but don't you think an online version of the exhibition itself would have a bigger audience without affecting the number of visitors at the same time?

While none of the above collections are online yet, as far as I know, Thomas Berger's collection of Imperial Russian registered mail (which was also exhibited at SPb) IS online at the EXPONET website. Not that much else in our spheres of interest there yet, sadly. Must be all that enthusiastic support from the Rossica Society.

Thanks for the link, but I don't see how it has anything to do with SPb 2007 results, the topic of the thread.

Rossica had 13 members send exhibits to SPb 2007. Not bad!

Still looking for a palmares online or reports from exhibitors not from the USA on awards.

Hello
Unfortunately I just have with me the printed Palmares booklet and I do not know where to get the results online.
However I may give an impression of this show for those who could not go there. St. Petersburg was not comparable with the large shows in Western Europe or the USA, for sure not in the size of the show itself. It was for sure not larger than the Swiss National show last year. There were only few Russian dealers and I was very reluctant buying higher priced material due to possible customs problems. If I would collect e.g. Switzerland it would have been disappointing. However as a collector of classical Russia it was a very intense dream. Within six days I was continuously talking with collectors from Russia, other former USSR countries and of course Russia collectors from all over the world. When I met one he brought me to the next one. I had the pleasure to present my collection several times and had to restart again when somebody new joined in. It was great to meet all the large Russian collectors like Ratner, Dobin, Furman, Levandovsky, Sarkisyan, Tjukov, Tsytkov... and of course also the experts from the Western hemisphere like Cronin or Ross Marshall. If one takes in mind that the organizers had nine months to organize this (other FIP shows need 2 to 3 years for this) the Russians did a great job. Chapeau! Of course there have been this customs procedures taking hours which were for sure not amusing for the commissioneers, but at the end it was working.
Taken together it was a pity for those collecting Russia who could not go and it was a shame for those who did not want.
Ciao, Thomas Berger

I desagree with world "shame" because Russian philately is still a property of the State and Russian philatelists are not free to be the real part of the international philatelic community. If we will ignore international philatelic events in Russia, may be Russian authorities will start to chage their rediculuos custom rules.
