India Brand Conclave 2018


Driving Business Growth through Marketing Effectiveness

This year, exchange4media’s The India Brand Conclave 2018, kicks off on November 29 2018 at Leela Ambience, Gurugram. The theme for the conference will focus on ‘Driving Business Growth through Marketing Effectiveness’.

Increasingly, marketing is being viewed more as an organizational process where the entire company adopts a market-oriented focus. In this scenario, an effective marketing strategy serves a crucial roadmap for the entire business. It also aids in capturing critical marketing measurement insights.

Moreover, given the complexity and dynamism in today’s ever-evolving marketing landscape, leaders in this space are required to adapt and execute new marketing strategies to effectively reach out to clients. This necessitates the need for an approach which calls for disruption, innovation and the leveraging of next-generation technology to create meaningful impact.

Watch out for all these insights and more from industry veterans who will be sharing their game-changing branding and marketing stories with us at The India Brand Conclave 2018.
