After much anticipation, Media Expo reveals its top-of-the-league jury panel for the Media Expo Excellence Awards 2020 KS Chakravarthy and KV Sridhar, creative leaders from mainline advertising who will share the stage on the 2020 Award Jury Panel.

With new capabilities constantly emerging in the advertising segment, brands and agencies worldwide are seamlessly using unique and appealing ad campaigns for captivating target audiences by influencing new trends. Going beyond conventional ad campaigns, there are those in the industry who have taken this power of omnichannel impact to the next level. The first edition of Media Expo Excellence Awards (MEA) 2020 by Media Expo will recognize pioneers of the creative and successful brand campaigns from the indoor, outdoor advertising and signage industry.

With a fair and transparent evaluation process set in place, the Media Expo Excellence Awards 2020 will be officially tabulated by Ernst and Young (EY). Judging the nominations for the awards will be a highly-accomplished and industry-experienced jury panel with some big names under the hood such as KS Chakravarthy, KV Sridhar, Ritesh Ghosal, and Rahul Puri.

Chakravarthy is a globally renowned creative leader with successful stints as the chief creative officer of Leo Burnett, Rediffusion Y&R and FCB Ulka. He currently serves as the co-founder and chief creative officer at Tidal7.

Sridhar is a widely celebrated ad guru and a creative leader with tons of accomplishments under his belt. He has brilliantly served SapientNitro, Leo Burnett, and Lowe Lintas, as their chief creative officer, and now serves the role of his self-founded marketing and advertising agency, HyperCollective.

Ghosal, the chief of marketing at Croma- Infiniti Retail Ltd, has spent more than 10 years in leadership roles across MNCs and Indian conglomerates in the areas of brand management, advertising, consumer insight, and general management.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
