The Australasian Philatelic Traders' Association organises shows for the benefit of the noble hobby of philately around Australia. Many members of the Australasian Philatelic Traders Association (APTA) will be at the Show, shown below in random order. The basic structure of Show consists of a set of actions needed to plan, organise, run and wind up a national philatelic exhibition. The actions are arranged in groups and subgroups and are approximately in the right order to allow an exhibition Organising Committee to step through each of the actions to ensure that nothing is forgotten. It uses Microsoft Access as well as Word and Excel for some of its functions.
