Every day of promoting the shows is a pleasure for Liz and myself and for us, the weekend of each show is the reason for our endeavour. Anyone who reads these pages will know we do not just envisage a show, book the venue, fill an exhibitor list. Our choice is to connect Visitors to Community relentlessly. The ethos of the show is holistic, and the methodology is comprehensive. And when then the door of Nottingham – Trowell closes at 17:00 on Sunday we will be working on the Newark show at 18:00.
This social interaction will never stop, and we know the importance of respecting Community and Visitors. They are the show, and it is essential to keep them informed about every facet of each show. Over the top? No, it is not, our intention is for as many people as possible to be aware of our presence and objectives.
We will talk to visitors and ‘Community Members’ all weekend, and we will listen to comments and suggestions. These ideas will form the slight adjustments to the year’s events. Constant appraisal, adjustment, changes, adapting and honing the events. All is driven toward people becoming aware of what we do and the Community we bring together.
The show was initially conceived as a twin to the Market Rasen Well Being Show. As a venue where new exhibitors could practice their methods and test their products. More than a few have moved on to become well known and well established. The key to the events was ‘Community Members’ lived close to the venue and helped in promoting the show.
We have never ignored the reality of expecting Community Members to help and actively participate in promoting their events. We do not spend money on a newspaper advertisement, and there are no road signs. Everyone involved is part of the promotion, in the early days, there was ‘old school know all’s’ who commented we would fail. They are no longer with us, and we are still here, and we are thriving, my goodness we are thriving. Look at the ‘Community Lists’ for Newark and Lincoln, if you doubt my words.
Something amazing is happening, our Visitors are taking possession of the shows. They feel the atmosphere as unique. They talk to their friends and review the Well Being Shows. Our visitors shared the events on social media platforms and chose to visit the event because of word of mouth. Why is this? The answer is the visitor knows they are part of a genuine force of Well Being. OUR shows are a meeting place for like-minded people, and they know there is a common purpose of happiness and inner security to be discovered during every visit.
Liz and I thank you for your support and faith in our vision. During a conversation in December, a ‘Community Member’ said something which stopped me in my tracks. He said ‘In April when you announced your take over of Newark and Lincoln I was over the moon. And then you wrote about ‘Community’ and ‘Ethos’, and then you started to write the community member profiles. I have to tell you, Ian, many people believed you were an idiot. The gossip was you wouldn’t last the distance, and your ideas would not work. In fact, there were a few people who laughed at you. And do you know something, Ian? Nobody is laughing now’.
Yes, we have lost a few on the way, and we are all the better for not having them within ‘The Community’. It’s a small world and people gossip, and gossip and lies will always float to the surface like flotsam from the sunken vessel. And we are not sinking; we are buoyant, healthy and following a voyage of discovery.
The feeling we receive from kind words of encouragement is worth a bank value of notes. It is a beautiful as the sun rising on a spring morning. Nothing beats the drum to success like the support of Visitors and ‘Community Members’. Truth to tell it is the efforts of these people who are the success. Whatever Liz and I do is easy, there is no mystery to filling in forms and writing essays. There is no magic spell or formula to his work and truth to tell it is not hard work. It is nothing like working out how to run a hotel or busy office. There are few difficulties, and we could replicate the process tenfold with the blink of an eye. So, the gratitude we have within our very being for the input, dedication and investments of ‘Community Members’ and Visitors cannot be measured. You should know the gratitude is seen in the dedication of bringing together visitors and community every day of the week.
I do not need to speculate on the success of the show. I do not have to because it is already a success, it is recognised as being worthy of the support of ‘Community Members’ who are incredibly well established. They do not have to travel to a small village outside of Nottingham, and yet they have done so, to offer their support. They are prepared to invest both time and money to make their show grow in strength and stature. Look at the list below; no one could envisage a group of thirty people coming together, some travelling over a hundred and twenty miles and having to pay two nights hotel accommodation if they had no faith in the event. The investment of time and money is acknowledged by Liz and me, we thank you for your confidence in our objectives.
There is no more to write – See you at the weekend – Liz and Ian – LizianEvents.
