NZPF Southern region established 1998

Canpex was formed in 1997 with the objective of organising national stamp exhibitions and promoting philately within the South Island of New Zealand.

Canpex has staged three very successful exhibitions, Canpex 2000, Kiwipex 2006 and  the Christchurch Philatelic Society centenary exhibition CPS 2012.  It was also actively involved with Timpex 2009.


(Incorporating the NZ inter-club one frame competition and the 18th National Philatelic Literature Exhibition)

In conjunction with the Marlborough Stamp Collectors Club and the Christchurch Philatelic Society Canpex Inc will be holding a one frame stamp and postcard exhibition at the Te Hapua Centre, Halswell, Christchurch on Saturday 18th November. Alongside the one frame exhibition will be the annual one-frame inter-club competition, the 18th National Philatelic Literature Exhibition and a large stamps & collectables fair.

Canpex Inc is organising the one frame exhibition, Paul van Herpt is leading a team from the Christchurch Philatelic Society to organise the literature exhibition, and the Marlborough Stamp Collectors Club will be arranging entries for the interclub competition.

We have an excellent venue at the Te Hapua Centre in Halswell (Christchurch) and will be hoping to have around 100+ one frame exhibits on display and should have enough space for up to 50 tables for the collectibles fair.

The regulations for the exhibition can be found at RULES and the entry form at ENTRY FORM.
