For the first time in the history of the program, the event was open not only to the members of the Kellogg-Recanati community but to their guests and senior managers as well. Each one of the invitees brought up to two guests who received a small taste of the academic world and sense of the strength of the KR community. Stuart Ballan,KR04, VP sales at RewardLife Ltd. and the president of the Kellogg-Recanati alumni club said:"The 15th anniversary event was certainly a source of pride. For many years we wanted to determine a milestone by which we could introduce our life and our community. The event, the guests and the notion of the panel expressed all together the unique nature of Kellogg- Recanati".

One of the most exciting things that happened that morning was Prof. Larry Franklin's announcement regarding the establishment of the Ariav & Franklin Scholarship Fund. The purpose of this fund is to increase the diversity of the students participating the program by providing one or more scholarships each year. Prof. Franklin made a personal donation of $11,000 and asked the graduates and their guests to join him in contributing to the scholarship fund.

Moshe Hillel, KR11, General Manager of Texas Instruments summarized the event:"It was not just a regular event that people come at the end of their workday. Here we had the priceless chance to have a gathering at breakfast with our friends and colleagues and enjoy an amazing lecture by Prof. Mohan Sawhney. The world stood still - I could have listened to him for a long time. The panel was interesting and enriching … it was also very emotional to meet my classmates. Seems like yesterday we sat side by side at the courses, and now, like a magnet, we quickly returned to our old days. I definitely left wanting more and I look forward to the next events".
