Percept's IBD retains creative duties for Panasonic

Panasonic had recently called for a pitch, and after a long pitch process, it decided to renew its contract with IBD. The business will be led by Srikant Rath, COO, IBD. The agency has an office in Gurgaon dedicated to Panasonic Consumer Electronics business where a team of 18 people services the account. The agency handles television, beauty grooming products, sound systems and home theatre along with system solutions products like printer, projector, and cameras from Panasonic's portfolio. The brand intends to spend around Rs. 25-30 crore in advertising the consumer electronics products this year. As the festive season is approaching, the brand is planning to launch another campaign soon.

Rahul Gupta, the Founder and Managing Director of IBD talks about the first time IBD won the account, "When we first pitched for the Panasonic business in 2008, we wanted to usher a refreshing and youthful energy to the brand, thereby making Panasonic the preferred choice of Young India. The brand inferred a positive rub off when we presented a plan with Ranbir Kapoor, who was young, versatile and promising. The association with Ranbir and Panasonic too has been a long and fruitful one."

 IBD specializes in providing holistic solutions across the brand spectrum- from advertising, films, identity management to interactive media and other touch points. The agency work spans across categories from multi- national to home grown brands.

 IBD is one of the few advertising agencies in India, which can boast of having a hugely diversified brand portfolio consisting of brands from industries spanning Fashion, Consumer Electronics, Baby Care, Hospitality, Personal care and Spices. The enviable and vast client list comprises Only Vimal, Morisons Baby Dreams, SYSKA LED Lights, SYSKA Accessories, SYSKA Gadget Secure, Panasonic, Georgia Gullini, Deltin Group, Vasu Pharma, Witlinger Beer, Growel 101 Mall, and the TAJ Group of Hotels.
