There were five theme days in this years' exhibition, namely Opening Day, Nanning Day, Youth Day, Chinese Zodiac Day and the Closing Day. On each theme day, some renowned stamp designers arrived at the venue and met with philately fans. December 3 was Nanning Day. On that day, the organizers held a "Nanning City Creativity Exhibition".

Nanning is a city with profound philatelic culture. It is among the first few cities that started early research on philately. The philately association of Nanning was established in 1983. Until 2015, there are 200 substratum philatelic organizations and 15,000 members in the association. Philately has become a hobby of many Nanning citizens.

It also serves to propagate philatelic culture and enhance economic as well as cultural communication among Asian countries.
