1956 — The Fifth U. S. International (FIPEX), New York City
(From STAMPS Magazine, April 16, 1955 - May 19, 1956)
September 3, 1955
The fact that stamps has been selected as the opening show is a tremendous endorsement of the international interest in stamp collecting. No other industry covers the entire world as does stamp collecting. This fact played an important part in the decision of the Triborough Authority to give this important spot to our show, and as a result we are endeavoring to see to it that every country of the free world, which number seventy-four, will be represented . . .

SIPEX, the Sixth International Philatelic Exhibition, in the United States, was held May 21-30, 1966 in Washington, D.C. This was the first U.S. International to be held outside of New York City—and came about only after plans for another New York event were scuttled.
The August 14, 1965 STAMPS summarized the events leading up to the choice of Washington, D.C.

1976 — The Seventh U. S. International (INTERPHIL), Philadelphia
In America's Bicentennial Year, the philatelic highlight was the 7th U.S.-hosted International, held appropriately enough in Philadelphia. In previous U.S. Internationals, the U.S. Post Office Department helped promote the show and issued stamps at the big events. In 1976, now as the U.S. Postal Service, it took a leading role, along with government agencies, issuing Bicentennial stamps, souvenir sheets and cards before and at the show. The 1975 and 1976 STAMPS Magazine issues provided full coverage leading up to the show.

1986 — The Eighth U. S. International (AMERIPEX), Chicago
As I stated in our March 4 edition, AMERIPEX was one of the most successful shows ever held in the United States. This was in part due to the tremendous pre-show news and publicity that was generated, under the leadership of show director Les Winick. There was so much material from the 1986 news releases that we ran "part One" in our March 4 issue, in the form of a summary announcement that covered the plans of the organizers.
