Mindshare, the flagship agency of GroupM along with WPP’s Kinetic Worldwide have bagged the media mandate for the Make in India initiative. Both agencies have been signed on for a period of three years. The government initiative, Make in India campaign aims to encourage manufacturing within the country and promote India as an investment destination.
The agencies will look into the media planning, strategies and media audits for this campaign while the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) will buy media in India and overseas directly through the Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity.
Prasanth Kumar, CEO of Mindshare South Asia, said, "It's a privilege to be working with the government of India and we will be pulling in our collective experiences from all counterparts to deliver value on this campaign."
The DIPP campaign is likely to tap into other regions like South Africa, Middle Europe, the US and Africa in the near future.
