In 2014, the National Topical Stamp Show comes to St. Louis, Missouri, for the first time in the 65-year history of the show. The show venue, the Renaissance Airport Hotel, is easy to access. Free shuttle service is provided from the airport terminal just a mile away. There is easy access to the Metrolink light rail, by which one can explore many areas of St. Louis.

The show will feature ~170 frames of exhibits and has attracted 31 dealers and several cachet makers who will feature not only topical material but a wide range of other stamps, covers and philatelic material. There will be meetings, seminars, activities and special touring events for your pleasure!
