impact Roundtable turns the focus on Advergaming

With 3G services slated to be introduced in the country soon, the digital medium is poised for bigger things.

Though at a nascent stage, advergaming is beginning to make its presence felt. The impact Roundtable stressed that now was the right time to innovate and demonstrate the value of this medium to the brands. This would help in the growth of in-game advertising or advergaming further.

The session was moderated by Pradyuman Maheshwari, Group Chief Editor, exchange4media.
