This year we also have something called ‘Meet the Disruptors’ as we wanted to do something different and the Disruptors are all Indians and they will be showcasing their Disruptive Work.
- Your outlook on the Indian Media and Broadcast Industry..?
We have a bunch of very talented brains and creative minds. They are brimming with ideas and doing amazing outstanding work. In PROMAX BDA Singapore India sweeps the awards every year.
When you tell them that we in India work with stringent budgets and time constraints yet produce outstanding work.
But there is a problem as we are not organised and disciplined and due to this lose work coming internationally.
We need to be more well trained, well disciplined and need more time to do better work other than being always rushed.
- Can Digital and Television can co-exist without hurting each other’s growth in Indian Broadcast ecosystem ..?
It will as both are co- existing. At the Event there won’t be any special event but Mr. Bingo will share his Digital Experiences and the Creator of ITV Platform will be sharing their experiences.
Raj Nayak is our Conference Chair and a line of very robust speakers.
This year PROMAX BDA is all about celebrating Indian Creativity and Talent.
