Mr Kamal Nath, Minister of Commerce & Industry to inaugurate The Marketing Summit 2006 at 1000 hrs on 17 August 2006.
As India undergoes paradigm shifts in the economy, social fabric and political landscape, are the traditional rules of branding and positioning still applicable? With a plethora of media, both traditional and new age, blasting messages at an unprecedented rate, consumers becoming increasingly aware and discerning, are the conventional tools and processes of building and managing brands still relevant? In addition with the rise of new power segments of consumers, like rural consumers, young women and kids, etc., how is the marketing mix impacted and how do the rules of marketing to the new India change? What will be the secrets of success and the demons of failure for brands in our fast changing economy?
The Seventh Marketing Summit with its theme "Marketing in a Global World: New Rules for an Old Game" will address precisely these issues.
Key Sessions and topics for discussions at The Marketing Summit 2006 will include - ? Consuming India - New Trends for a New Indian Consumer ? Visual Aids: How TV and Movies are transforming marketing in India? ? New Consumers, New Language: Communication with Gen Next of Indian Consumers ? The rise of Organized Retail in India ? Building the Global Indian Brand: Myth or Reality?
