    This is my home show, so I will be there.
    I have booked time with Gena (Custom Nib Studio)
    to have some pen nibs worked on.

    If Philly and the show was more of a spring or fall show I could see my investing as a place to come and visit as a tourist from Canada. I prefer not to pay bigger airfares to fly to a cold climate from a cold climate in January. I have however heard all good things about the show inclusive of the hospitality several years back during a heavy snow storm that confined folks to being in the hotel during other closures.

    I've heard several excellent reports about the Philly pen show, but it would be even more expensive to fly from this cold climate where I live to that cold climate.
    If I ever attend a US pen show, I'm thinking it would need to be one that takes place in summer.

    Fermata, Agreement with your comment is quite easy. A one day show precludes many budget collectors and new to the hobby folks making such a large investment in a one day event. Still it takes all sorts of events to keep the interest up amongst the pen community new and old.

    Apparently it's a three day show (January 17, 18 & 19).

    True three days of pen fun. Just wish it was during a warmer weather time to come visit. Plus 15C or so weather.

    To all who do go enjoy. I am sure the pen event will be awesome.

    How about the St. Louis Pen Show? It happens June 26 - 28. www.stlpenshow.com
