In September 2012, OG took New Orleans by storm! The streets were flooded with thousands of members of the OG Family and our OG Diamonds were shinning as bright as ever.
On Thursday, over one hundred OG Diamonds took to the city of New Orleans to volunteer hundreds of man hours with one of four great organizations: Covenant House New Orleans, Youth Rebuilding New Orleans, ReNEW Schools and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast New Orleans.
On Friday, we kicked off the convention with an OG Parade and Opening Celebration in Champions Square. The streets of New Orleans were lined with thousands as the Diamond floats made their way thru downtown with live marching bands.
The opening celebration was unlike anything New Orleans had seen before. We had a record-breaking number of people in Champions Square, fireworks and everyone was pumped for general sessions to start. Announcements from OG’s Founder and CEO, Bernardo Chua, Co-Founder & Global Master Distributor, Shane Morand and EVP of International Sales, Holton Buggs got the crowd rocking in the square!
On day 1 of general session, Mr. Shane Morand and Mr. Holton Buggs kicked off the convention by welcoming everyone to New Orleans, and getting New Orleans Arena ready for Mr. Bernardo Chua’s speech. Mr. Chua gave the OG Family in attendance a glimpse of the changes that were coming for OG’s head office and warehouses in the near future. We also announced that the second annual GOLD magazine was available in the OG store.
On Saturday night there was a VIP Party at the Hyatt Regency for OG’s Executives, Diamonds and VIP tickets holders. This was an elite-networking event for distinguished guests to better acquaint themselves.
Day 2 was even more energized than day 1 and the OG spirit was in full effect. There were many presentations that took place, the highly popular Diamond Knighting as well as speeches from high-profile Diamonds as John Sachtouras, Luis Ventura and Jose Ardon.
To wrap up the convention in New Orleans fashion, OG hosted a Masquerade ball with a surprise performance from Boyz II Men!
