The Advertising Club presents the "Twitter Townhall"

The Advertising Club’s virtual ‘Twitter Townhall’, in partnership with Twitter India, is all set to showcase the unique and innovative concept of Twitter Townhall in India. Under this initiative, the Advertising Club will provide a platform to Industry leaders to interact and inspire young and inquisitive minds across the country. 

Commenting on this initiative, Raj Nayak, President of The Advertising Club said, “The world is going digital and India remains a major player in this realm. Conducting a first-of-its-kind virtual Twitter Townhall in the midst of all this, is an extremely exciting prospect for us. I would call it a ‘digital reach-out program’, because with this new initiative we are comprehensively erasing the narrow boundaries of time, geographies and hierarchies, and making it possible for inquiring minds to connect with business leaders in a unique and meaningful manner. We hope to continue breaking ground with the Advertising Club and initiating programs that foster growth for digital India.”

The Twitter Townhall will kick start on 12th February, 2016 with Rahul Welde, VP – Media, Unilever, for Asia, Africa, Middle East, Turkey and Russia. Some of the reckoned stalwarts who will be chairing this engaging initiative include: Sam Balsara - Chairman & Managing Director, Madison World, Bobby Pawar – Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer, Publicis India, Madhukar Kamath - Group CEO & Managing Director DDB Mudra Group and Ashish Bhasin - Chairman & CEO South Asia - Dentsu Aegis among others.

 “Twitter Townhalls have been used by global business and political leaders to connect with their followers and audiences at large, for quite some time now. Bringing the Townhall to India is a huge step for digital India. I can say that we, at Twitter India, are excited to be associated with the Advertising Club to launch this initiative that is going to further encourage interaction and foster ambivalence for the ever growing digital audience in India,” added Rishi Jaitly, Vice President – Media, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, Twitter India.

With a pre-decided schedule of townhalls, the Advertising Club Twitter handle will invite its followers and the Advertising Club members to send in their questions via the social media platform. If the question gets shortlisted, it will be answered by the business leader every Friday at a pre-decided time from The Advertising Club Twitter handle (@TheAdClub_India).

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
