Kenyans Connect Conference in Las Vegas-A Rugby Diaspora Event…

 

On behalf of Kenyans Connect, and together with the support and
partnership of the Embassy of Kenya, Washington DC, we want to share with
you some information about a Diaspora event  – Kenyans Connect 2012 – to
be held February 8-12 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This event will be
scheduled alongside the IRB World Sevens Rugby Circuit USA leg that, as
many of you already know, attracts world class teams and draws a fan base
of over 2,000 Kenyans living in the Diaspora who attend to support to the
Kenya Sevens team. We have chosen to have the Event at this time to
harness the presence of the diverse group of Kenyans in attendance.

Many of you have asked how you can support and get involved and we would
like to start by thanking you for your interest and support.
We would love to have you join our marketing committee and also request
your assistance in the effort of promoting and marketing the event quite
aggressively over the next few weeks, as Rugby Sevens comes up in exactly
a month. If interested, we would love to have you join us on our next
conference call. We have been in Nairobi the past month, pursuing
sponsorship, and now want to really focus on marketing. We will be sending
out a flyer shortly and additional info to use.

Quick background: Kenyans Connect 2012 will be an all-day Diaspora
conference to be held on Thursday immediately prior to the weekend rugby
festivities. It will focus on engaging the Kenyan Diaspora with industry
leaders to discuss development and awareness of the opportunities
available for them in Kenya. It will also provide a unique opportunity for
corporates and government stakeholders to be an integral part in shaping
the growing trend of the Kenyan Diasporas’ interest and investment in
Kenya’s future.
A golf tournament will be held on the Friday.

Other committees open, if interested are, Content, Hospitality/Logistics &
Golf. Let us know if you would like to be involved in any of these as
well. We want and need your feedback and input.

So the bottom line is…
Everyone will really be coming in for Rugby so we are asking Kenyans to
come in Wednesday night for a welcome reception, and in time for the one
day event on Thursday.
In addition, this is VEGAS! We want it to be FUN, DIFFERENT and ENGAGING!
It is for the Diaspora, by the Diaspora. It’s about us! So expect it to be
a VERY different ‘event’!

We have a Facebook page and a website www.kenyansconnect.com.
Registration should be live by Monday. Also here is the facebook event
page. https://www.facebook.com/events/298783500157613/

greatly appreciate it! For those of you who have already confirmed
interest! THANK YOU!…and are excited to work with you!

Kenyan Connect Conference – 9th February, 2012.
