9 November, 2012

 Percept Activ bagged the onus to design, execute and be the official event partner for The Exchange4media Conclave 2012 presented by Jagran took place in two cities – Gurgaon (at the Leela Kempinski) on October 22, 2012 and Mumbai (at ITC Grand Central)on October 23,2012.

The exchange4media Group organised its flagship event exchange4media Conclave every year, as an attempt to bring industry stakeholders – corporates, media service brands and media owners - on the same platform to discuss the changing global communication industry, with specific focus on India. Taking off from the event last year, where the discussions focused on \'Reshaping Media Priorities for the New Marketing Era\', the theme of the 12th edition of Conclave was: Marketing 3.0: As data, technology and consumer insights take Centerstage.
As marketers continue to invest crores of rupees every year to better understand and connect with consumers, the advent of technology has created a dual-edged weapon of opportunities and challenges. Technology impacts everything it touches – content dissemination course, ways in which consumers interact with a brand and the very manner in which conversations take shape. On the other data abundance is also an hindrance. Information about anything and everything – from individual consumer level to communities to even larger entities – is now available and accessible. Right from media consumption trends to shopping patterns to the impact of buying decisions on businesses and pointers to businesses of the future can be found by those who are looking for it.
Brand Communication activities encompassing both promotional activation and event activation were administered by Percept Activ. The basic principles of marketing may still be the same but the application is where the differentiation comes in. The exchange4media Conclave 2012, Presented by Jagran, delved further on how data, technology and consumer insights are now the keywords that can make all the difference for a marketer and a brand.
