I was looking at the statistics for the 2017 Pelikan Hubs and was curious to see that Taiwan had the second largest number of registered attendees with USA in first place. In fact, Taiwan outranked number three Germany by a large factor.  Are Pelikans especially popular in Taiwan?  Or maybe the Taiwanese are just especially gregarious people.

Pelikans do seen popular in most Eastern countries. Almost every Japanese pen dealer advertises "Sue Belens."

I don't have any specifics as to why but that region has always been a popular one for the hubs gatherings. I know that some of Pelikan's more exotic offerings were for those markets in the past.
