The event this year was remarkably different from its earlier instances. The participation of many of the countries from the Middle East, India, Rest of Asia, Europe, and Africa, that had not participated earlier, made the event special.

These special guests included the Mayor of Richmond who was attending the banquet for the first time, along with the honourable president of the Kentucky University. And last but not the least was notable professors from various localities who were accompanied by their families. .
