The world’s first Divorce Fair was held in Vienna at the end of October.
Exhibitors included lawyers, mediators, estate agents, private detectives, DNA labs, and life crisis experts. I can see plenty of scope for financial advisors, counsellors and coaches to participate in future Divorce Fairs.
There was also a series of lectures on subjects such as how divorce affects children and coping as a single parent.
Unfortunately the event was not well attended, perhaps because with the number of reporters present any chance of anonymity was jeopardised.
The event was criticised by some for not focussing more on helping people to save their marriages. Perhaps a lesson for the organisers of the next Divorce Fair?
We have Wedding Fairs, so why not Divorce Fairs? I think that organised sensitively it could be a good idea. What do you think?
