WHEF [email protected] will be held as part of the second World Hindu Congress (WHC) in Chicago, Illinois, U.S. from September 7 – 9, 2018. Inspired by the Hindu principle, Sumantrite Suvikrante or THINK COLLECTIVELY, ACHIEVE VALIANTLY, the World Hindu Congress 2018 promises to be a movement not to be missed. On the eve of the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic address to the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago, Hindus from around the world and of all backgrounds are invited to actively participate.
Held once every four years, WHC’s seven parallel conferences showcase how the values, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit of the global Hindu community find expression in a variety of spheres.
WHEF 2018, under the conference theme of “Optimism, Innovation & Partnerships” will enable Hindus from across the world to network, get first hand insights into the North & South American markets, and pursue opportunities for mutual growth.
The WHEF journey began in 2012 at Hong Kong, followed by successful annual forums in Bangkok 2013, New Delhi 2014, London 2015, Los Angeles 2016 and several regional forums along the way. The 2017 conference in Nairobi had to be cancelled due to re-elections in Kenya and related political uncertainty.
