For the uninitiated, Pelikan Hubs is an annual gathering of Pelikan fountain pen owners and those who are still on the decision-making stage of buying their own. (Don’t have a Pelikan pen yet? Scribe has a 10% off on Pelikan purchases while Endless PH have promo codes for hub attendees!)

Each year puts a spotlight on a special edition color a fountain pen and an ink, with the latter being given away in a hub. There are some  freebies straight from Pelikan, but each hub have the freedom to add more or organize programs around the event.

The Pelikan Hub in Mandaluyong, for example, have their own letterhead and coat of arms just for the night, not to mention a dinner and lots of raffles. (Disclaimer: one of the two pen noobs registered at the Mandaluyong Hub.)

Pelikan Hubs in the Philippines started in 2014. Below is the event’s history in the country, written by Guia Bengzon.
