North America`s first Telugu meet to be held in Houston
Washington: India`s Telugu culture will be at grand display in the US during the first North American Telugu Association (NATA) convention to be organised in the Houston city of Texas state June 29-July 1, 2012.
The cultural meet will be held in downtown Houston at George R. Brown Convention Centre, which is spread over two million square feet area and is also celebrating its silver jubilee this year.
On this occasion, the convention centre, offering "southern hospitality with a cosmopolitan twist", will be decorated with a Telugu touch in a bid to take the visitors back to their roots just as they step in, said a release.
Over 130 individual vendors will set up their stalls during the convention in the centre`s huge exhibition hall. The scrumptious Telugu food will be cooked on site in the state of the art kitchen and served fresh in two huge dining rooms for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Two cultural stages will showcase talent from India and the US with well over 100 cultural items, literary events and a grand concert by three music directors.
With 100 meeting rooms under the roof, there will be something going on to meet every attendee`s taste, may that be business, women`s interests, medical, youth, spiritual, sports, literary or any other events related to Telugu.
