The advertising industry, more than ever, is under pressure to change archaic elements of business models, keep reinventing, and work with reduced budgets. After all, advertising budgets tend to be one of the first things to be cut when times get difficult. Today, big marketers are also cutting spends on advertising and building more capabilities in-house. In this time of a slowdown, when most brands are grappling with a slump, the ad industry might be heading for a tougher phase.

So, with the industry facing growth stagnation of sorts, what can stakeholders do to up the game? This question will be answered by an esteemed panel of industry leaders at the 19th edition of e4m Conclave to be held on Tuesday at Taj Santacruz, Mumbai.
