If there is evidence of our progress, we saw it at The Nottingham Well Being Show. I do not count return visitors in the attendance figures. However, if they were to be put into the equation, we would have five hundred visitors through the door.
The Visitors see the Community list and talk schedule as the reason for attending the shows. However, it is the experience during The Well Being Show which builds the attendance numbers.
The growing attendance figures demonstrate the Visitors are enjoying the shows. So they return and often return with friends and family. With this constant growth, The Community is Winning the hearts of Visitors.
The feedback over the weekend is nothing short of brilliant:
Clive (a committed Well Being Show enthusiast) comments ‘The atmosphere is amazing Ian, that why we come on both days and stay the whole of the day. Not only this, you can ‘feel’ that many of exhibitors have taken on board the idea of Community’. To my mind, when a Visitor makes an unsolicited comment like this, we should accept progress toward our objectives is being made.
Never has the idea of Community made more sense:
The concept of Community is beginning to make sense to a more significant percentage of Members. They see the camaraderie as one aspect of the Community concept. However, they are starting to look at the rewards from participating in LEN and The Facebook Group. As each week goes by, the numbers increase, The Community thrives.
Becoming part of The Community makes sense. We have a cohesive structure which is nineteen-months of evolution. The growth is evident and consistent. As organisers, we will continue to give The Community Members a trading platform second to none. Those who wish to take advantage of what is provided will see returns on their investments.
The progress we are seeing is as anticipated. To my mind, a tipping point where we look at sustained growth and increasing Visitor attendance is thirty-six months from the beginning of this venture. At this stage, The Community’s Well Being shows will make an altogether different impression on Visitors.
To my mind: the three most significant aspects of this Nottingham Well Being Show, was the number of new Visitors, the fact people stayed at the event all day and many returned for the second day.
There is only one reason for this, the reason is:
Well Done to every one of you:
See You Soon
