Huge networking event to run alongside virtual Lincolnshire Show
Lincolnshire is to host its biggest ever networking event – alongside the Lincolnshire Show Online – and it is attracting huge interest.
The Lincolnshire Show Digital Breakfast and Community Conference will run from 7am to 11am on Wednesday and is called Connecting Lincs: The Future.
The event will be focusing on the county post-COVID-19 – and beyond. Organisations and individuals across Lincolnshire are being urged to attend.
Organiser of the breakfast, Steff Wright of Gusto Homes, has been working closely with the Lincolnshire Showground team to make the event happen.
He said: “Traditionally, the Lincolnshire Show brings together people from all backgrounds for two days. People meet with others who they may not have seen for a year since the last show.
“The Lincolnshire Show Digital Breakfast aims to bring visitors together digitally, where we can meet up with existing contacts, make new contacts, listen to interesting speakers and join discussion rooms to share knowledge and better understand of what a post COVID-19 future may look like.
“The subject for the first session is ‘The Future of…’ with panellists discussing what the future may look like for their area of specialism. The second session is ‘How to…’ with panellists offering ideas around personal and business support.
“We are linking up with many other Lincolnshire networking groups and organisations, includingLincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, People in Property in Lincoln, Team Lincolnshire and Lincoln Business Club, to encourage all their members and attendees to join us. We could have as many as 1,000 people join us on the day.
“We are absolutely delighted to have secured Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, known as The Black Farmer, as our key speaker. He’s an incredibly inspirational man who encourages others to follow their dreams and find ways to reimagine their future.”
The 136th Lincolnshire Show will take place on the same day on an online platform, while the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society will replicate the typical show format in an online world. Visitors to the website can explore six different zones, including Main Ring and Aviation, Education Zone, Kitchen and Food Court, Trade Exhibitors, Agriculture Zone and Countryside Area.
The Lincolnshire Show Digital Breakfast event will be hosted on Zoom and live-streamed through the Lincolnshire Show Online website. If you would like to join theDigital Breakfast please visit www.communityconversation.org.uk
