Talking about the meet, Jury Chair Amit Jain said, “The primary motive of the awards is to appreciate the good work and serve as an inspiration for all of us. The core elements which we have actually looked at for these awards, apart from the guidelines, included strategy, execution and results. Also at the core of it, there was the desire to understand that at the end of the day, marketing is business and business is marketing.”

The Indian Marketing Awards recognise the fact that marketing is critical for organic growth of a business and its central role is creating, communicating, capturing and sustaining value for an organisation.

The awards will be held on November 29 at The Leela Ambience, Gurugram.
