  • Providing a unique and successful educational forum for Internet builders in the region to learn from their peers and other leaders in the Internet Community from around the world which will contribute to the Internet development of the region.

In return for your support, APRICOT 2009 Manila partners will be presented with valuable opportunities to expose your organization, products and services to an international audience of Internet builders.
