The India Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA) will induct Sam Balsara into its Hall of Fame at the sixth edition of the IAA Leadership Awards on July 27.
Commenting on the same, IAA President Ramesh Narayan said, âThe Hall of Fame is the biggest honor that the IAA bestows in India. It is reserved for someone who has not just built and run a great company, but has gone beyond the call of duty and made a significant contribution to the industry as a whole. Sam is so much more than Madison Communications. He has been President of the Advertising Agencies Association of India, The Advertising Club and the IAA. He has also been Chairman Audit Bureau of Circulations and Advertising Standards Council of India. And he has brought great respect to every office he held. Having had the pleasure of working closely with him at the AAAI and the IAA I am delighted with this wonderful choice. This will definitely act as an inspiration for others in the industry."
In its sixth year now, to be inducted into the IAA Hall of Fame in earlier years are Pradeep Guha, Ramesh Narayan, I Venkat, Bharat Patel and Srinivasan Swamy.
This induction will be done at a ceremony on July 27 at which the IAA Leadership Awards would also be presented.
