NEW DELHI: The third edition of ApnaCircle-APREE 2010, which stresses on social network as a tool for promotion, is to be held on the theme of ‘Tools in a Surging economy’ in Goa from 26 to 29 August.
Actor-producer Sanjay Suri, who had taken part in last year’s edition on ‘Innovations in Recession’, related at a press meet here how he had collected funds and talent using social networking sites for the film ‘I am’ produced by him and Onir.
He said he had floated the idea at the meet last year, but will now relate his success through this medium.

Spotlight Event & Entertainment is hosting this annual interactive learning platform aimed at Advertising, PR, Entertainment & Event management companies, where experts from these industries come together at one platform for social and business networking and discuss the bright way forward. founder and CEO Yogesh Bansal claimed that the website now had 1.5 million users in India and was the second largest website in the world. “I believe online and offline networking is a great way to reach out to people. As ours is a business and career networking website, we see such platforms as a great stage to be utilised for business and professional networking. APREE is one such extension where I think the Communications industry from across verticals will come together at one platform to share ideas.”
