The United Nations Philatelists, Inc. (UNPI) in a joint effort with the American Philatelic Society (APS) produced a special World Series of Philately exhibition devoted to United Nations philately at the APS headquarters in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. The UNEXPO17 ran from October 27 through October 28, 2017.

I am the past president of the UNPI and have been a Director in the past and I am still the Webmaster. The show was a lot of fun. There were some great dealers and they brought some amazing United Nations material and the show was a great success. There were some amazing exhibits to see there; including a few of mine :-)

I had never been to the APS headquarters ("The Match Factory") in Bellefonte before and it was great to visit. The library was amazing and the staff was so helpful and the UNPI board, members, and general collectors also had great dinners in the area. It is a great place to visit.

I showed the following malaria related exhibits at this show and their awards are shown below:
The W.H.O.'s "The World United Against Malaria" Stamp Campaign

The United Nation's 4¢ and 11¢ World United Against Malaria Set Of 1962 And Their First Days

Usages of the U.S. World United Against Malaria commemorative issue of 1962
