Guwahati, March 12: Chairman of Madison World, India’s leading communication and media firm Sam Balsara launched The Advertising Club, Guwahati. The Advertising Club, Guwahati is constituted to be the premier body of the region’s advertising, media and communications industry. Representatives from Publication Houses, TV Channels and Advertising Agencies have come forward to constitute The Ad Club, Guwahati which was launched today. The organisation intends to work towards the promotion, growth and protection of the advertising industry which is fast evolving in this region. Aimed at rewarding and recognizing work that is setting benchmarks in the regiol communications industry, The Ad Club also intends working towards developing talent – the scarcity of which this market continues to suffer from. During the launch, Balsara said, “The formation of The Ad Club is a sign that the industry is gaining maturity and is evolving, and is a step in a right direction. In the early days in seventies and eightees, the Ad Club, Mumbai played the role of a catalyst in bringing the industry together and raise the standards of the Industry, through Tea meetings with leading lights, Awards, Semirs and the like. I am sure Ad Club, Guwahati will do the same.” On the occasion, President of The Advertising Club, Guwahati, G Kibriya said The Ad Club aims to work towards further organising the industry that is somewhat fragmented currently. Kibriya who has been in the communications business for over 29 years also mentioned: “The regiol industry has come a long way, and with most matured markets in the country having their Ad Clubs, it is now time for this region to have its own as well.”
The Ad Club Guwahati shall now be open for memberships. This was stated in a press release.
