Editor Matt Hill said: "The Summer of Stamps was a great success and covered all kinds of different subjects. We’ll definitely be returning for a second Summer of Stamps festival next year, and right now we’re keen to focus on a particular topic and really give collectors expert insight to help them build their knowledge and their collection. We're very pleased to be working with the GBPS on the conference content. Once again, collectors can enjoy all the content for free as we work to bring the community together and share our passion and expertise."

Chris Harman RDP Hon. FRPSL, President of the Great Britain Philatelic Society, added "The GBPS is delighted to be the partner for this exciting new initiative. Interest in GB philately is very high at the moment. With many people spending more time at home, we have all had more time to focus on our hobby and learn more. This series of talks on line provides a great opportunity for everyone to continue to add to their knowledge and encourage both new and established collectors."
