An initial set of 20 video recordings of presentations made at BNAPS study and regional group meetings during the past year are now available for viewing.

Normally only BNAPS members can access these videos; however, courtesy of the study and regional groups and the presenters, everyone registered for BNAPEX 2021 Virtual can view them.

To see the list of videos, visit the BNAPEX home page, scroll down to the section entitled "Video recordings of past meetings", and click on "View the videos".

There are two Zoom link buttons:

  • Zoom links to join BNAPS meetings
    Provides Zoom links to meetings that are restricted to BNAPS members: the Board of Directors meeting and the BNAPS Annual General Meeting. The list of Zoom links includes links to the agendas of the BOD meeting and AGM.

The BNAPEX virtual bourse is online.

The virtual bourse consists of over 30 dealers who have had tables at BNAPEX conventions during past five years. Also included are new dealers who have asked to attend BNAPEX 2021. All the dealers are members of BNAPS.

Some dealers offer BNAPEX specials on their website. Because of logistics and implementation issues, the planned Zoom meetings with dealers will not take place. Instead, collectors can contact dealers via telephone, postal mail, email, or via their website. All the dealer contact information is given on the dealer page.

31 July 2021

BNAPEX 2021 Virtual opens its doors!

Almost half the BNAPEX 2021 online exhibits have been uploaded to the website and are available for viewing.

BNAPS non-members:
You must register and log in to view the exhibits. You can do so by clicking on the "Registration" tab in the navigation bar at left. Alternatively, you can just click on the "View exhibits" button or the exhibits photo on the BNAPEX home page. If you aren't registered and logged in, you will be prompted to do so.

BNAPS members:
No need to register. Just go to the BNAPS member login page, and log on the website. You will be registered for BNAPEX automatically, and will be able to access all the BNAPEX pages without having to log in again on subsequent visits to the website. There is a convenient button to the BNAPS member login page on the BNAPEX Registration page.

14 July 2021

Exhibit upload to website

Exhibitors can now upload their exhibit pages to the website. Go the the BNAPEX 2021 "Exhibits" web page and click on the "Online Form" button, the same button used to enter your exhibit entry form and upload the synopsis and title page.

The format of exhibit page file names MUST be as follows:


At one point, the exhibition prospectus erroneously stated that there should be a hyphen between the frame number and the page number. There should NOT be one. An updated prospectus is posted on the Exhibits page.

You can upload multiple files in one operation; however, you are limited to an aggregate file size of about 16 MB, and as you approach the limit, the file upload will be noticeably slow, on the order of 15 to 20 seconds.

Exhibit submission ends on 22 August.
