GroupM to launch online Diwali Mela

GroupM today announced its plans to launch an online platform called   “Grand Diwali Mela”, which will be India’s largest festive season online destination. This initiative supported by Google, will allow consumers to take the neighbourhood mela experience to their favourite screens – across Mobile, Tablets or Desktops.  The “Grand Diwali Mela” will go live on 1st October and last till the festive days of Diwali.

The “Grand Diwali Mela” will bring together two of the biggest activities Indians like to indulge during any festive season, shopping and entertainment, as users experience in offline Diwali Mela. Shopping is an integral part of our Diwali celebrations when the whole family spends on an array of product categories. Diwali is also a time of celebration with family and friends where music and movies and games are part of every get together. All these offline experiences will be available to online users at the Grand Diwali Mela.

Speaking about this unique initiative, CVL Srinivas, CEO, GroupM South Asia said, “As more Indians go online, digital media is already an integral part of our everyday lives. We have conceptualised a virtual Diwali Mela for users in the country to experience the festive season in a specially designed online platform, where brands will showcase their latest products, run promotions and sampling along with all the fun and entertainment elements that are part of the festive season. Leading brands are excited about the potential of this initiative, and this could possibly become the largest digital activation platform for this festive season.”

Rajan Anandan, Country Head, Google India added, “We are delighted to be working with Group M on this innovative platform, that will be first of its kind initiative to kick off the festive season in India. Our teams are very excited about this and we are sponsoring the effort that will be accessible across all kinds of devices - including mobile phones.”
