June 1, 2011 - PRLog -- The event from May 27 – 29, 2011 included the Miss Zimbabwe USA pageant, a boat party ride, passport services by the Zimbabwean Embassy, Winky D, CeeJay Besa and Flavor P live concert, 11 team soccer tournament, church services and Business Networking Forum, to name only a few activities.  

Zimbabwe Business Network International (ZBNI) Communications Director Chipo Mkandla said the active participation during the ZBNI sponsored Business Networking Forum is evidence that this network is indeed a much needed service for Zimbabweans in the Diaspora. The Affirmative Action Group from Zimbabwe (AAG) gave attendees first hand information, answered questions on the Indigenization bill and challenged Zimbabweans in the Diaspora to make informed decisions and actively participate in the Zimbabwean economy. ZBNI, the business wing of ZimExpo is a platform for people to get more of this type of pertinent information, network, collaborate and share ideas.

Elizabeth Chitseko was crowned Miss Zimbabwe USA 2011. The 20 year old Certified Nursing Assistant and member of National Tech Honor Society from Oklahoma is looking forward to her year long reign as well as a chance to represent Zimbabwe in the upcoming Miss Earth 2012.

Scores of families attended the Family Day activities on Sunday afternoon. New Youth FC from Cincinnati won the much anticipated Soccer tournament in a heavily competed final against Zim Atlanta FC.  

“Overall, we are very pleased with the expo. Zimbabweans travel from all over the country every year to get together, make business deals, exchange ideas and socialize. We know that the Business Forums definitely bring added value and we appreciate the loyalty that our patrons have shown in support of our 10th Anniversary,” said Tonderai Tela, ZimExpo Business Consortium CEO. The next event, ZimExpo Canada will be held in Toronto, Canada, July 16 & 17 2011.  Please visit www.zimexpo.com for more information about ZimExpo’s activities.
