For the first time in the history of Bangladesh, a great grand event for collectors is going to be celebrated in this October. It's an exhibition where the collectors will exhibit their collection on various types of things like stamps, matchboxes, coin and banknotes, antique items and many more.

Collecting different types of things is an amazing hobby and there are a large number of people in the world who choose collecting as their passion. In Bangladesh also, there is a number of collectors who collect different types of things and there are some organisations for collectors also.
