“The world of marketing thinking and practice is undergoing deep-rooted changes. When information is available on-the-go and everyone is connected, ‘brand authenticity’ and relevance is at a high premium. While there are tens of thousands of brands wooing the India consumer, he ‘believes’ in just a handful,” said Amit Agnihotri, Editor, Pitch and Co-founder, exchange4media Group. He added, “Those are the top-rate brands and their marketers, who will share their brand strategies at the Pitch CMO summit.”

The last 12 months have seen a lot of action in the marketing world. At the brand level, there have been successful launches like Micromax. Many brands like Tata Swach have tried to create new markets, while brands like Videocon have undergone a makeover. At the macro level, ‘participation’ is the big idea that many brands have embraced. This makes Pitch India’s Top 50 Marketers. These marketers have been identified using a rigorous three-tier judging process,” Agnihotri added.
