  1. Ndi Igbo mara mma no be small thing o! Glad to see young professionals coming out and doing the darn thing. I just might attend next year, I've always had the impression that it's a regional affair so it makes me reluctant to buy a plane ticket. Does anyone know randomly where some of the attendees reside?

  2. There were people from California, South Dakota, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas New York, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, Chicago and so on. It was truly a good weekend. Lots of social and networking avenues. Check it out next year. It will be hot fire ….
