On behalf of Gotabgaa Ohio Chapter, we would like to officially welcome you to attend and participate at the Gotabgaa 2016 International Conference from June 30 – July 3, 2016. The conference will be held in Columbus, Ohio USA.

With more than 700 attendees in last year’s conference, and feedback that showed a positive impact of the conference on individuals, businesses, county governments, and other organizations present; the organizing committee has built on this success to make the 2016 conference much more magnificent.

The theme for this year’s conference is Unlocking Potential; Harnessing Opportunities. To this end, the conference is designed to bring together the Kenyan community in the USA and around the world to deliberate on ways of partnering together to promote our well-being as a people and the common good, including means to grow socially and economically.

The conference is also planned to provide a forum through which Kenyan diaspora companies/institutions and the USA companies/institutions meet to explore potential linkages, partnerships, and joint ventures to do business in Kenya and Africa in general as well as in the USA.

Additionally, the conference will include opportunities to promote young talent by providing a platform to showcase these talents and exposure to an international

audience. It is our hope that this exposure will boost creativity and quest to be even better; as well as arouse interest in potential sponsors.

Should you have any questions or require more information please drop us an email at: gotabgaaoh2016@gmail.com
