Our main theme for WSC2004 is Uniting the World through Stamps. We will have ‘Nature’, ‘Technology’ and ‘Culture’ galleries where within each thematic area, there will be displays, exhibits as well as interactive activities.

We plan to set aside our Culture Gallery for the interactive performance, such as dances, art&crafts, games etc for the various countries. We would like to invite Turkey to participate in our Culture Gallery to showcase your rich culture and heritage in conjunction with the stamp displays and exhibits. The time slot will be given at no charge to the participating countries.
