The 2017 London Writing Equipment Show taking place in October this year is almost sold out of DEALER tables..We only have 12 tables left unallocated.If you are thinking of joining us you need to act now to grab a table. It looks as though it's going to be a good one. As usual table plans will be available nearer the date.

 

All of our other shows the Northen, Eastern, Midland and Yorkshire shows are all completely fully booked and waiting lists for each show has been started - looks as though it's going to be a great year for pens.

P.S, Table plans are available now for all of our shows except London

Happy days! :)

Aside from London, do we have any European dealers or exhibitors visiting the shows this year? IIRC Gimena were at the SW show last year?

That's great news, Ian.

How do we get table plans - I'm going to try to get to the Eastern show for the first time this year.

Hi, we have a new international dealer from Turkey joining us for the Eastern show in May he's bringing abot 400 pens with him! and at Sheffield we are being joined by Prof. Garlato from Italy and An Tran from the USA. All the shows are now fully booked with waiting lists started so as you say happy days lots of fun ahead.

The Eastern table plan is ready now, I'm working on London now. Just let me know where to send the plans to and I'll get them off to you. I can be contacted at ianpwilliamson@virginmedia.com

Sounds great - I might try to visit one of these as I'm intrigued by what UK pen shows have to offer!

appreciate that October is a long way off ​Ian, but it might be of use to let folk know the actual date, perhaps, thanks :)

Will be my first time.  Was hoping to make it last year but had a clash.  As it's outside the congestion tax zone, anyone know if the hotel parking is free and available to us (I'll probably still use the tube).


London UK Fountain Pen Club meats at the Bierschenke near Liverpool St Station on the first Saturday of every month aside October (for the London Writing Equipment Show) 12:00-15:00 - London, UK Fountain Pen Club

On street parking is free around the area - but check first.

 

I use Google street view to look at signs in advance and have always managed to find a space.

There was a question on the availability of car parking, not being a car user I didnt think of this for central London but the UK Penshows website says that there is underground car parking at the hotel, likely to be very busy of course.

I think I may repeat this year! hopefully if Imso will manage to meetup again!

Fountain pen novice. I am aquiring pens at a frightening pace, I am afraid it might be an addiction... I see I am not alone here on FPN! Latest acquisitions - Platinum 3776 Kumpoo with Diamine Eau de Nil, Opus 88 Koloro inked with Diamine November Rain, Franklin-Christoph Model Pocket 66 prototype inked with Franklin-Christoph Honeycomb.
