  1. I am a long-time fountain pen user/collector. i am new to forums and chat though. I hope this is the proper way to announce this new pen show. I am excited and I don't even know where to start🙂.

The Florida Hotel and Conference Center at the Florida Mall is located a short distance from the airport, Disney World and all the other theme parks and attractions. The room rate is $115+tax (resort fee has been waived for us) free parking. One side of the hotel lobby opens into a large vibrant shopping mall. The hotel has agreed to allow our special show rate up to 3 days before the show and 3 days after. This means you can bring the family and enjoy a pen-cation, enjoy the show and all the area has to offer. They also will extend your stay longer at the show rate if rooms are available. All Access Pass: This is the best deal for the serious pen enthusiast. It allows 2 people early entry to show days Fri and Sat and includes a meet, trade, sell pens and a pizza party Thurs night. Door prizes will be given out at the pizza party. It also includes a dessert party Sat night. This pass allows you meet and hang out with vendors and other serious pen people. Price is $50, if you book your 3-night hotel stay early it will be $45. Passes will go on sale in the near future. You must book hotel room first to get discount and be eligible for door prizes. Vendors who book hotel room early will be eligible for door prizes of their own. One lucky vendor will win their 3 -night hotel stay for free!

  6. We're just about three months out from the start of the 2nd Annual St. Louis Pen Show! As large as our inaugural show was last year (1400 visitors, 95 vendors, 150 tables), this year's show is shaping up to be even bigger affair (judging by the size of the vendor waiting list and the number of companies that want to sponsor/promote).

    Pen Show Advice

    HI! I've been a "lurker" on this sight for a while now and haven't really chosen to post anything, so this is my first time. Sorry if this is in the wrong place, still getting the hang of things. I'm a young fountain pen enthusiast who's been in the hobby for a while now. I've amassed a decent collection of pens, Lamy, Pilot, Conklin, Cross, etc. as well as an assortment of inks and notebooks. I also run a pen review blog in my spare time. Recently, I found out there is a pen show in my area, the Atlanta Pen Show, and am planning to attend. I was curious as to what the policy is for younger attendees, and if this is well looked upon in the fountain pen community. I am also curious if there is anything I should bring to the show, such as pens, a bag, or a notepad. I'd love to hear your feedback! Thanks, Ben ,

  20. Hi all! Here's a Mabie Todd I found on the parts table at the Chicago Pen Show. Nib: MT&CO, 14ct, No2 Barrel: GOLDEN MONTANA Nothing on the clip and the nib is nice and flexy. I've got some other ones, so I'll stop lurking and post them soon as well.
  21. What sort of things do you take with you to a pen show, aside from $$ that is? I'd like to get some well-honed ideas for my first venture to a show since wading into this hobby. I'm figuring on a loupe or two and some different papers for testing pens and inks, and perhaps a pouch for holding pens I might buy, but after that I'm wondering what's worth lugging around. Should I take a few pens to do comparisons between what I have and what I might want? A rule or a caliper to measure pens? Thanks, Marc

  23. For a long time I've thought that pen shows are an American thing. But now I found this excellent site http://www.freewebs.com/euroshows/ which tells me that there are some pen shows in Europe as well. There doesn't seem to be as much exposure of these on FPN as of the American ones, though. What are these European shows like? I figure the ones closest to my location would be in Poland and Germany, but I don't speak Polish at all, and speak only a little German (despite the fact that I have an excam certificate which claims otherwise). So I'm wondering, how international are these shows? Are foreigners welcome? Does the audience speak English?
  24. I haven't seen any post about it yet, but the Colorado Pen Show is coming up in a few weeks: October 6-8, 2017, in Denver at the Double Tree Stapleton North. http://www.coloradopenshow.com
