Americover 2016 Site Chosen

Show Hotel Rates Once Again Below $100

The American First Day Cover Society, the world's biggest non-profit organization of FDC collectors, has chosen Falls Church, Va., a Washington, DC, suburb, for its 2016 show and convention. The AFDCS will be joined by the Universal Ship Cancellation Society, which will hold its annual convention at Americover 2016.

Americover 2016 will be held at the Falls Church Marriott Fairview Park August 19-21, 2016.

The official hotel rates for every Americover have been below $100, and that will be true for the 2016 edition: $99, good from Wednesday through Sunday nights. Parking is free. In-room wi-fi service is free to Marriott Rewards members. Although Americovers run for three days, there will be a special tour on the preceding Thursday and a post-show dinner event Sunday evening.

Americover 1997 and Americover 2008 were held at the Falls Church Marriott Fairview Park. The Washington, DC, area has very strong interest in first day covers, and boasts one of the AFDCS’ most active chapters, the Robert C. Graebner Chapter.

“Some of our most successful Americovers were held in Northern Virginia, and this should be another good one,” said AFDCS President Lloyd de Vries. “If you collect first day covers, this is the place to be, because virtually all the major FDC dealers, exhibitors and collectors will be here.”

All Americovers are World Series of Philately shows dedicated to first day covers and the fun of stamp collecting. Locations move around the country: Last year’s show was held in Columbus, Ohio, the year before that, in Somerset, NJ.
