    Default Open Invitation from the Hi-Fi Wigwam Forum

    Apologies if this breaks any rules and please either move or delete if needed .

    If anyone on this forum is not a member of the HiFI Wigwam and do not read the threads there the following has just been posted.

    I had a room at this Show Last Year for the first time and the weekend is not only great fun but a good place to meet people who are all interested in music and audio . I saw equipment and heard equipment I had only previously read about . I was also introduced to a number of artists I had not heard before .

    "INVITATION TO EXHIBIT TO OTHER FORUMS

    This is a formal invitation to all other hifi forums who would like to exhibit at this years HiFi Enthusiast Show, the biggest collection of personal systems in the UK (thought about Brexit).

    I'm sure we have members here that are members everywhere else so it can be copied and passed on. We intend to give each forum two rooms which are next to each other where they can attract and show off their systems so please make sure this is passed on. The show is nearly full so please make sure this happens quickly. "

    I did not want to push this just add the invitation and assume those that were interested either to have a room or just attend would go the Wam site . However as it has been asked I am putting the following link and information .

    THE WAM HIFI SHOW 2019 - EUROPE"S BIGGEST ENTHUSIAST EVENT - KEGWORTH MARCH 16-17

    https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/1...heet-now-live/

    Truthfully I did not intend to either convinve or offend anyone with this post just to let others know the offer was there . If it is felt this post is divisive then any Moderator please delete accordingly .

    A wonderful spirit, this is how audiophiles usually are; fellow enthusiasts with only genuine intentions.

    Do you know have to pay for the honour of exhibiting at the Wam show? I know that last year exhibitors were required to book a room for the night.

    Last year snow stopped me attending for the first time since its inception - hopefully this year will be different.

    I think the answer is yes you need to book the room that you exhibite in and have the use of to sleep in , also includes breakfast
    I had no problem paying this , its all part of going away for the weekend, comunity spirit and all that

    I have no problem with the concept of community spirit but it doesn’t usually apply to commercial concerns - and the Wam is entirely a commercial concern these days.

    If everything was free , the income from traders on the day would not cover the running costs so the event woud not happen
    over 100 people are willing to support the event as I have done in the past

    Yes, as I have done too. I’ve not only attended every one but last years, I’ve also exhibited and helped friends exhibit at it too - I don’t think I can be said to be lacking in community spirit when it comes to the Wam show. It’s not the ‘by enthusiasts for enthusiasts’ event it once was though - now it’s people charitably supporting a business.
