    FredRydr,

    Thank you for the news. For those who aren't on the BWIPS mailing list, the rooms (at some discount from regular room rates) are now available.

    If I remember correctly, the available pen show rooms sold out for the 2023 pen show. We attend this show and the D.C. Pen Show. The BWIPS is very good, just not huge like the D.C. Show. It is a well-run show and we look forward to attending the show again in 2024.

    Regards,
    Craig

    The pen show rooms at the Marriott are sold out.

    The Aloft Suites just down the street still has rooms.

    VIP Passes are still available.

    I've always wondered: why is it called the Baltimore Washington show? Baltimore is in Maryland, right? And even if there is proximity, isn't the DC show the 'Washington' show?

    Just curious.

    Then again, the Los Angeles show has been rebranded the "California Pen Show", ignoring the fact that the San Francisco Pen Show is still in operation six months later. Marketing mavens everywhere...

    Kind of common in that area. The code for the airport in Baltimore is BWI which stands for Baltimore Washington International - Thurgood Marshall Airport
