Proud To Be Kuwaiti Not So Proud?14 Mar 2012 5 Comments
Last Saturday was the last day of Proud to be Kuwaiti (P2BK) event. The place was over packed and they only allowed families in which caused chaos at the main entrance with single guys being denied entry.
While I was there, what caught my eye was that well established international franchises such as Taco Bell and Haagen Dasz where present at the event and in the main hall.
Also, with the event being called "Proud To Be A Kuwaiti" I found it ironic that a Saudi company was present at the event too.
Not only did the event had a number of new startups but also a bunch of familiar faces too. There was a lot of food stuff that were mostly offloaded to a separate tent and not in the main hall.
I’m sure that the 5th year of PB2K broke attendance records but I also think that it lost its identity. I really like the original idea and I hope they get back on track.
