York, United Kingdom, March 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Postcard fans will be heading into town for buying, swapping and networking opportunities when the expo takes place on 1st and 2nd April this year.
The Postcard Expo offers value to attendees with tickets costing as little as £3 to enter for both days. Postcard collectors and fans can look forward to trying to bag a bargain having saved money on one of the hotels York
has to offer. Online hotel booking site DirectRooms.com advises comparing deals online in advance to find value accommodation.
For years postcard collecting and trading has been a popular underground hobby but because of the growth of the Internet trading fairs have become less common. The York event will see fans from all over the country get together in one place to seek out those all-important cards which could complete a collection.
Staying in the centre of York is a sensible move, particularly given the city's fine transport links out to the racecourse. Collectors and traders can look forward to meeting dealers from countries like Germany and Cyprus to see ranges of postcards they might otherwise never have access to.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com says: “Niche hobby events like this typically see large attendee numbers because they are so specialised. Staying in York is a real treat given the city's history and architecture but the trick to getting a good deal on accommodation is definitely to book ahead online."
