Urban American Outdoors in conjunction with the KC Black Expo is having their 3rd Annual Urban Outdoor Summit which will take place Friday September 7-9, 2012 at the Bartle Hall Convention Center, 13th & Central Downtown Kansas City.

 
PRLog - Aug. 3, 2012 - KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Urban Outdoor Summit will bring people of various outdoors disciplines as well as advocates and friends for a day of sharing information that is pertinent to their communities and their future generations. The Black Expo which will be simultaneously taking place will showcase small and regional businesses to introduce to everyone who attends. Bringing all of these venues together will allow networking and a great way to develop and create new connections to help usher in a new economy to inspire our communities to grow, support entrepreneurs and become vital once again.
On Friday evening, Sept 7, 2012  the Urban Outdoor Summit will start with a welcoming reception and special book signing of “A Man from Another Land: How Finding My Roots Changed My Life” by actor Isaiah Washington. On Saturday morning September 8th from 9am to 6pm there will be panels and discussions ranging from connecting our youth back with nature, careers in the outdoor industry, genealogy, wild game cooking, and basic survival skills. There will be talk on Green Living, Urban Farms, Arts & Entertainment, Music and New Media.  There will also be specific panels of Scuba Divers, Skiers, Hunters, Hikers and Anglers.
Urban American Outdoors Host Wayne Hubbard will be filming and sharing info about the TV show and the new channels he will be on. The US Forest Service will be on hand to share current job opportunities. There will also be the “Perspective Award Luncheon” to award Outstanding Individuals who advocate for the Outdoors Lifestyle. One of our very special guests of the Summit and Expo will be Ms.Tia Norfleet the 1st and only African American Woman to be licensed by NASCAR telling her inspirational story of success and what is around the horizon for her.
Summit Organizer, Candice Price stated, “We created this Summit to bring people together who had been in love with the outdoors and had been striving to be apart and contribute to the sustainability of keeping the rhythm of nature in sync. We had traditionally been left out but a natural transition has taken place that is adjusting everything and now we all can move forward and have a good time doing it”.
Modest expected attendance of the three day expo is 35,000 but could easily exceed these numbers due to the people having a renew sense of coming together looking for economic solutions. At the expo there will be movies shown, hair & fashion show, food, free health & dental screenings, outdoor vendors and plenty of family entertainment.  Basically there is something for everyone and every year there will be additional levels added to grow the expo to share more info and trade so that we may all benefit.
