BABA and Eden Intelligence Present a special Burns Night Celebration

Join us for our inaugural commemoration of the great Enlightenment Scottish Poet Robert Burns.

With remarks by Rep. Joe Wilson, (R-SC) of the Friends of Scotland Caucus.

Every year in late January fans around the world celebrate the life and work of this noteworthy figure. On January 26th BABA will co-host an event to rival them all when celebrated Burns performer Gavin McNicoll joins us from the UK to lead our group in performances of poems, songs, traditional toasts and piped reels.

BABA presents this event alongside co-host Eden Intelligence, creator of the post 9/11 International Terrorism and Intelligence series of meetings. The event is sponsored by Gold Sponsors Zodia Markets, a crytpo platform backed by Standard Chartered bank and OSL, Silver Sponsor Lockheed Martin, Reception Sponsor Northrop Grumman and Whisky Sponsor Diageo.

This special VIP gathering will further BABA's mission of promoting UK-US trade, innovation and investment. All BABA members are welcome to attend, and we have a special focus on leading figures in defense, intelligence, cyber, and financial services.
