It is said that pleasure is the flower that passes with time, but remembrance is the lasting perfume that stays with us for the time immortal.

With great pleasure, I invite you to celebrate the 42nd North American Bengali Conference in Las Vegas, known as the entertainment capital of the world. It will be a fabulous celebration of Bangaliyana, at Planet Hollywood, July 1-3, 2022. We also treasure the golden memories of our Bengali life in North America and set in motion the in person celebration of the 50th anniversary celebration of Cultural Association of Bengal, the founders and proponents of annual North American Bengali Conference, albet two years later. It’s the lasting perfume that keeps up with us as we embark on this journey together.

NABC continued to happen virtually last two years, keeping that traditional alive, In that endeavor, we expanded globally, reached out to many more partners across the world, bringing in fresh ideas and new blood while keeping our conference vibrant.

The vision of our founders was to build the podium where we host an annual convention of fellow Bengalis living in diverse cities across North Americas to showcase the rich heritage of Bengali culture and life from times past and the very best of Bengali life of our time in the realm of music, arts, literature, science, technology, business, and more. And what a vision indeed! The seed that they planted 42 years ago has turned this to a peepal tree under which we all meet with our heads high and celebrate the very best of Bengali life as we know of, half way across the world.
It gives me great pride in announcing that we are the only ethnic organization in North America able to host this mammoth convention uninterrupted for 42 years and garner eight to ten thousand attendees. This convention is for you and about you. Our mission is not complete without your participation and support. Let us spread the good vibes among all your friends and families and share the joy together.
I heartily welcome you to attend the gala in 2022 Banga Sammelan, July 1-3, 2022 in Las Vegas and urge you to carry it forward to next 50 years and more.

All my best,
Milan K Awon
