Pow WOWed at Culture Club!
For the 43rd Anniversary of International Pow Wow, San Francisco played host to a gathering of over 1,500 international and domestic travel buyers and 450 journalists representing over 70 countries. Over the five day conference, the California Academy of Sciences and San Francisco International Airport were honored to host the second evening “all delegate party” on Tuesday, May 24th. Themed “Culture Club”, the 5,000+ delegates mixed and mingled with the cultural jet set, sipped cocktails and California wines, savored international cuisine—all while they enjoyed an aquarium, planetarium, rainforest and natural history museum. And they danced the night away to the sounds of hip San Francisco musicians!
This is only the second time in its history that International Pow Wow was been held in San Francisco. We look forward to seeing many of our clients in Los Angeles next year at 2012 International Pow Wow!
