With only five weeks until Scriptus 2014, we have lots of good developments to report:
-we have nearly 40 exhibitors booked, from across North America, including our seven main sponsors. We also have a few “value-added” tables, which we will announce over the coming weeks.
-we have a great diversity among exhibitors, but it’s all about writing: pens and pencils, both vintage & new; art papers and calligraphy supplies; inks in every conceivable colour and kind; fine stationery; writing-related ephemera & equipment.
-representatives of major manufacturers, eager to show off their latest products and hear your input as to what makes a great pen.
-Sean Gosse, formerly of PenRx has been confirmed to do on-site repairs and nib work. It has been four years since you could simply walk your pen into someplace and walk out with it just the way you like, so take advantage of this chance!
On the invisible side of things, we are working hard to ensure that the day goes without a hitch. This includes working closely with the venue coordinators, exhibitors, and show volunteers to make sure that you have a great time. We are in the process of assigning table locations, and working up the details of a final publicity campaign. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed and Facebook wall for all the latest news and announcements.
Stay tuned, and we look forward to seeing you on November 2!
