Agency Report Card 2017: Dentsu X

We assess the 2017 performance of Dentsu X in India based on its business results, its innovation and initiatives, its work and awards and its people and leadership.

Agency Report Card 2017: Dentsu X
Till 2016, for Dentsu X its stature preceded its size. According to some estimates it had a mere two per cent share of the market. But 2017 was a inflection point for the agency in more ways than one.
 
In this year, the agency re-defined and re-branded itself 'Beyond Media’ and in the process redefined the communication space in which it operated. It claims that it was to re-invent itself to address the future where ‘experience’ is more valuable than mere ‘exposure’.
