The premier pan-African media company, Face2face Africa, today officially announced the schedule for its upcoming Pan-African Weekend (PAW) in New York City.

In its fourth year (second year as ‘The Pan-African Weekend’), PAW has been Face2Face Africa’s staple annual event and one of the most-prestigious gatherings for the celebration of achievement and excellence. A powerful and sensational action-packed three-day event, PAW was created to highlight the individuals and ideas that are transforming society, and celebrate the pioneers, trailblazers and leaders who have paved the way for the next generation.

The 2015 PAW is set for July 10-12 in New York City. Similar to last year, the events include the YACE Master Class, the IAAPA Networking Mixer, the FACE List Awards Gala, the after-party, and the closing Jazz brunch

The official kickoff event to the weekend, the YACE Master Class, will be held in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of the African Union to the United Nations on Friday, July 10th at 6pm, followed by a networking mixer at 8pm.

This years main event, the FACE List Awards Gala, will have a slightly different format from previous years. Face2face Africa announced that the format this year will be a  seated dinner style awards show. Guests will enjoy a delectable full course dinner, a night filled with entertainment and inspiration, as well as the opportunity to meet and network with the celebrities and power players of pan-African affairs.Early-Bird
