#150yearsofpostcards - Vienna meetup 5 October 2019


In Vienna we‘ll celebrate the 150 years of postcards! :singing:
Come on! Let‘s have fun and celebrate with the whole world!

CITY: Vienna
DATE: Saturday, 5 October 2019
TIME: 10:00 am
MEETING POINT: Bahnhof Meidling, Exit Schedifkaplatz, left in front of a flower shop

RESTAURANT: 13:30 pm - Amos Gastwirtschaft - Schlachthausgasse 13, 1030 Wien
https://amon.at


Our first program point is the visit of the grave of Emanuel Herrmann, therefore we meet already at 10 o'clock at Bahnhof Meidling.

Then we visit the postcard studio "art postal", http://www.art-postal.com, Margaretenstraße 47/1a.
The "art postal" postcards are produced in the Waldviertel by the "Janetschek" printing company, which has clearly positioned itself as a model company with a focus on print production. Printing is carried out with energy from renewable resources in accordance with the guidelines of the Austrian Eco-label - and has been since 2003.

On the way there, we'll stop at some postcard shops.
Depending on how long we are there and at the studio, we then go to the Rochus Post or directly to the restaurant.

Hi everyone! I'd just like to let everyone know that Austria Post is also issuing a commemorative postal card (like a postcard, but without image) on October 1st, and there will be a special cancellation mark on that day at the Austrian Philatelist Association in Vienna. :) Hurray!

Our contact at Austria Post also mentioned that there would be a presentation at 10am October 1st, on the Austrian Philatelist Association headquarters. She asked if postcrossers wanted to attend, and if someone could perhaps talk a little bit about Postcrossing at this event.

Any volunteers? :)

Two different cancellations for our postcards will be available until October 15th. So we all can send our signed postcards to the "Post am Rochus" to get one of the cancellations:

@ Ana: I am afraid we all will have to work on 1st October, so nobody will have time to got to the Philatelist Association headquarters at 10:00.

Sorry, I forgot to write here that in the meantime Jonas has volunteered to go and talk about Postcrossing in the association, but everyone else in the area with free time is invited as well. Naturally, I understand this is a workday and people might have other things to do... but just in case, you're all invited. :)

Dear Meixi and everyone in Vienna,

We'd like to invite everyone organizing meetings around the 150th anniversary of postcards to do something a little bit extra on the day, if possible. :) Here are some suggestions:

- Broadcast a little video message from your meeting, either live or by recording a video and uploading it. For example, sing or wish the postcard a happy birthday, or show the world what your celebrations look like.

- Connect with another meetup happening simultaneously in another location, so that a small moment of connection can be established between the 2 groups of postcard enthusiasts! Remember to reach out to the respective meetup organizer beforehand, in order to exchange contacts and sort out a suitable time.

- Take pictures and share them with us! Tag them #150yearsofpostcards or send them to us on social media or via email, so that we can share them with the whole community. We would like everyone to feel included and to show the world what the celebrations of this special milestone look like.

Most of all, we hope you enjoy the event and this special day together — it's a birthday party, so remember to relax and have fun. :)

Good luck, and long live the postcard!

@radiohead92 perfect! I just want to try and share as much as possible of the celebrations, so that people feel inspired and can see what others are up to. I think it's always nice to see :)

@radiohead92 but please ask the people at the beginning of our meeting if the agree with it that there will be their photos on your twitter because otherwise we can get some troubles concerning protection of privacy.
