Jammu & Kashmir Tourism scouts for advertising agencies

The Jammu & Kashmir Tourism Department is inviting offers for empanelment of advertising agencies for a period of three years. It will empanel not more than three agencies at a time and will utilise the services of the empanelled agencies as per their expertise, quantum and quality of work. The interested agencies have to submit the proposals to the J&K Government by January 25, 2014.

The agencies must be able to handle print, audio, video, internet, digital and social media advertisements, outdoor activities and also undertake printing jobs of the Department. The agencies will have to conceptualise and implement a customised promotional campaign for the Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions in the domestic/ international markets, which would remove apprehensions in the minds of potential tourists and target both consumer and travel trade.
