Assocham signs on LeagueOne as its official retail marketing partner for Focus 2007

LeagueOne, a pioneer in introducing the concept of ‘Internetwork of Retail’ in the independent retail segment, has been signed by Assocham as the official retail marketing partner for their entertainment and media event – Focus 2007, a platform to highlight the achievements of media and the digitalisation of the entertainment industry. The event is being held in Delhi on December 19-20, 2007.

The idea behind Focus 2007 is the need to focus on regional entertainment in the global context, enhance the reach of regional entertainment network, nurture and augment local talent through entertainment and media education, thereby creating a meaningful forum for serious business development and interaction with financial institutions and venture capitalists. Keeping in mind the need to focus on regional entertainment, Assocham will be organising a forum on Digital Entertainment Group of India on the second day of the event.

Well-known Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan would also be there to share their experiences at Focus 2007, the first ever entertainment event being held in Delhi. The need to promote regional entertainment industry and its integration with the global scenario has driven these Bollywood personalities to be a part of the event. This apart, a play, titled ‘Kaifee Aur Main’, would also be staged, which will feature real life couple Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar.

Rajiv Gupta, MD and CEO, LeagueOne, said, “It gives us immense pleasure that a reputed organisation like Assocham has chosen us to be the official retail marketing partner for this mega event.
