The patronage of the President of the Republic is a notable recognition from the highest government for the biggest collecting event of the Finland's centenary celebration year. This patronage will continue the tradition: previous international exhibitions organized in Finland have had the same honor. The patron of FINLANDIA 1956 was the President of Republic Urho Kekkonen and the patron of FINLANDIA 1988 was the President of Republic Mauno Koivisto.

FINLANDIA 2017 exhibition will open already at 9 am on Sat 27th May.

Now you have plenty of time to join the International Hellman auction starting at 10 am.

More than 400 exhibits to FINLANDIA 2017

(1st September, 2016)

The organizing committee has selected the exhibits to be accepted for FINLANDIA 2017. The list of exhibits will be disclosed on February, 2017. At that time the National Commissioners will be informed about the accepted exhibits of his/her country

Approximately 400 exhibits plus 58 literature exhibits were selected from some 600 applicants. Given the space limitations, previous exhibition results and other criteria, the exhibition committee was unfortunately obliged to decline about 650 frames of exhibits. The accepted exhibits, together with invited exhibits, make a total of 2248 exhibition frames. This makes FINLANDIA 2017 the second largest exhibition ever arranged in Finland and the largest one in Europe in 2017!


All financial support to the Finlandia 2017 exhibition project will be needed to make this great event possible. Accordingly we are inviting all who love philately to support the exhibition by using this web site: you can make a direct donation or sponsor five or more exhibit frames (with name plaques).
