2002 National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.

The 2002 Exhibition was a superb event held over four days (28th November to 1st December) in conjunction with the Antiques For Everyone fair at the UK's prestigious National Exhibition Centre near Birmingham. Over 1,000 items were displayed in walk-around and table-top cabinets providing excellent viewing of all aspects of the weights and related objects. Members of the CPC were joined by delegates from the American-based Paperweight Collectors Association (PCA) and the combined knowledge and expertise ensured that no question went unanswered. The joint stewardship also meant that no opportunity was missed to gain new members for both clubs. The layout of the exhibition, at the junction of the two main sections of the Antiques fair, had plenty of floor space between cabinets ensuring ease of access. Hence, although there was a steady flow of visitors to the display, there was never any bottleneck, even with groups of several people gathering, seemingly from nowhere, for discussions.
