In just over a week’s time it’s the Léman Expat Fair! This event will take place in Lausanne from 11:00-17:00 on Sunday 4th November. This fair, now in its 6th year is where expats and members of the public can go to find around 140 business, services, clubs and groups all under one roof. All of these have experience in serving the English-speaking community. Living in Nyon will be present at the fair at Booth Number 100, so do come and say “Hello!”
It’s a good opportunity to ask questions about living in the Nyon area, but also to buy the “Living along Lac Léman” book. This book is a collection of columns that have been published in La Côte newspaper (in English), together with other articles and photographs, it’s a light hearted look at living in the lake Geneva area. It makes for the perfect gift, Christmas present and is useful to have if you have just arrived here and want to know more about the customs and traditions of living in the Romandie part of Switzerland.
Read a review of the book here by Diccon Bewes, author of Swiss Watching ( Best book of 2010 – Financial Times)
Come and have a copied signed by the book’s author (also the Living in Nyon editor). Note: the editor will not be at the stand until approximately 13:30 on Sunday 4th, but there will be a representative of Living in Nyon to sell books and answer questions from 11:00 onwards.
According to the organisers of the fair, no matter what your current level of integration is, “whether you’re here for a lifetime or just passing through, you’re bound to find something new!”
Check out all the exhibitors that will be at the fair here. There will also be light snacks and lunches available all day at the coffee corner and restaurant. There will be sand art and face painting for children and opportunities to speak to experts on hand during the day to help you with your expat questions. There will be an “Art Corner” to view paintings, photographs, sculpture, etc, and to find art courses! There will also be “career enhancement” advisers present. Want to know more about job hunting in Switzerland? Listen to this (recently broadcast) radio programme about the mistakes expats make when job hunting in this country.
At the fair there will be performances from the theatre group the “Village Players”. Listen to an interview with them here on World Radio Switzerland recorded at the beginning of this year.
So there’s a lot going on at the Léman Expat Fair. There are prizes to be won too such as a night’s stay in Gstaad, a dinner voucher for 200chf, wine tasting for 10 people, and 500 chf worth of travel on CFF! See you there!
