Participating for the 3rd time at the IamExpat Fair in the Hague and I think I am already addicted to it. The preparation, the anticipation, your own stand, the last details with the organisers, the thousands of visitors and the short (or long) talks with some of them, the exhibitors at the next stand, the positive vibe, the "borrel" after the fair is over.
Until next year, AntiLoneliness has plenty of time to catch up with all the people we met and talked.
Thank you all for such a wonderful event!
My second time participating as an exhibitor at the IamExpat Fair was -again- an exciting and memorable experience. Not to mention that the whole coordination but also the communication with the organizers was reaching extremely high standards.
Comparing with the first time that people heard about The Anti-Loneliness Project, this time visitors were more open and less "defensive" to the idea of Loneliness being discussed among them.
"I'm so glad that this exists", said to me a woman after stopping for a few minutes and talking with me at my stand.
Some time later, after discussing about Loneliness with a man, he turned to me and admitted that it's so nice when we are allowed to embrace loneliness, before we proceed to any other step in order to defeat it.
It was my first time participating as The Anti-Loneliness Project in a big expat event like that. And the first time that I could really experience people's reactions about the Anti-Loneliness idea/project LIVE.
And from one point onwards, I thought "Oh gosh, I should start keeping notes". The reactions were so many and so different, that you must see it to believe how much of a variety there is in people's perspectives, beliefs and views.
