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). Once again, we're holding it at the Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel. Westport Plaza is a fantastic location, as there is plenty of parking (including a garage), several restaurants within 5 minutes walk, and a free shuttle to/from the airport. Here's the deets: When: June 21-23, 2019 (we're also having a trader day on Thursday, June 20) Friday: 11am to 6pm Saturday: 9am to 5pm Sunday: 10am to 3pmWhere: Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel, 900 Westport Plaza Drive, St. Louis, MO 63146Discounted Hotel Room rate of $119 per night. Visit this link or call 314-878-1500 to make reservationsPrice: $5 for 1-day pass, $10 for 3-day pass, kids free, $30 for trader pass (includes Thursday trader day)Site: https://stlpenshow.com/Hope to see you there!
Hi everyone, The St. Louis Pen Show is just around the corner (starts just FIVE WEEKS from tomorrow...June 29-July1...how did it come up so fast?) Just wanted to post some updates: We're up to 92 vendors! We've got retailers, pen makers & artists, nibmeisters, repairers, distributors, and a few other special guests. We've maxed out both ballrooms and all the hallway space at the hotel. We have a ton of classes scheduled, including calligraphy, cursive handwriting, journaling, snail mail, pen repair, ink, pens for kids, pen history, and even a class on photographing your pen collection! Many events planned: PCA Kids Scavenger Hunt, a Pen Auction, Pen Artisan Guild Pen Contest, Dessert Party for vendors & weekend attendees, and of course, Pen Shows After Dark! Lots of great door prizes, including a Parker Duofold Centennial Lucky 8 fountain pen, generously provided by Martinson Wirth. We sold out the block of rooms at the Sheraton! Crazy that they're gone. Luckily, they were able to work with the DoubleTree down the street to open up a new block of rooms (there's a shuttle from there to the plaza). I was tooling around Westport Plaza last week, and there are a ton of restaurants and bars within a couple minutes walk from the hotel. I think it's definitely one of the best pen show "neighborhoods" I've seen.If you're planning to attend, I'm looking forward to meeting/seeing you there. If you're on the fence, I hope this posts helps push you over the edge! Please visit the site (www.stlpenshow.com) for all the juicy details and other information!
