Beijing International Stamp&Coin Expo. 2012

 The fair take from Nov. 2nd to 4th at Beijing, many agencies comes for coins rather than stamps to sell. If you have official ticket, you can buy sepcial souvenir sheet issue for the fair. News say the ticket is over 100 RMB(12.5 Euro) by scalpers. If you don't have it, you still can get entrance to visit the expo. It is first time to visit any stamp fair in my life for free.
There is no such many stamps agency from overseas. Here is the list, Nordic Post(Danmark, Iceland, Sweden, Faroe, Aland, Greenland, Finland, they combined one booth.), Austria Post, New Zealand Post, Australia Post, Macao Post, Hongkong Post, Singapore Post, Philately Liechtenstein Post, Post of DPR Korea, Swiss Post, Luxemburg Post, Ukraine Post, Peru Post, Nordfrim(Denmark), IGPC International Postal Agency, Prinz Verlag GhbH(Germany), Globa Phila(Lithuania), Russia, appreciation of stamps of the Soviet Union, Cover Story(UK), Stanley Gibbons(Royal Mail, Isle of Man PO, Guernsey PO, Jersy Post Limited), Phila Post(Netherland), Fauna-stamps.com(Czech Republica).
There is only one stamp exhibition, topic is Red Memory about CCP performance and histroy.
Many collectors had one Philatelic Passport to collect vendor's cancellation. I think main incomming of vendors is from the cancel service, 10 RMB one stamp and one cancellation. On the booth of Cover Story, who provide UK and Germany cancellation service, even they prepared German ATM for the passport.

Nordic Booth
 Kind people from Faroe and Denmark Post

Well, back to ATM. Only Faroe Post have that to sell, issues from 2008 to 2012 in standard value. I bought one 2008 and 2012 strips, the price is more expensive than eBay or order from Faroe Post thru email. The list price is 37 RMB (4.62 Euro) for strip of 2008, 40 RMB (5 Euro) for strip of 2012. Supposed it is because it involve the currency exchange, tax payment, and travel cost.
The serial number of two strips are very close, only the last 3 digits are different. So I guess they are printed from the same batch for the fair, that means Faroe Post still kept some blank label of old issue for future event.

Inquired with Danmark, Swiss Post they dont' have also any ATM. By the way, 'Automatenmarken' is more understanding than 'Franking labels' on the booth.

Philapost found 5 Klussendorf labels on its box, I bought 2 minimum value of them, 26 RMB total. Both have number on backside.

Fauna-stamps.com found one strip of pip and cattle issue from UK, one set of duck from Aland. I bought one minimum value 0.75 Euro of Duck ATM in 10 RMB.

Above all are the ATM I see on the fair.
