Abeer Chakravarty, executive vice president, Bates141 commented, “Bates’ reputation in advertising and B-to-B CRM is what swung the decision in our favour. Among the many real estate projects we have handled, this is truly a feather in the cap considering the scale and uniqueness. We are very excited and bullish about the major challenge in selling such a development in Bengal. It’s got all that it needs, to be lapped up but requires stimulating a paradigm shift in perception.”
 
Commenting on their association with Bates141, Subrata Paul, CEO, BAPL, said, “We look forward to an enduring and long-term relationship with them to take the Aerotropolis project to the next level. The international experience of Bates141, together with their pan-India presence would help position Durgapur Aerotropolis as the largest innovative urban infrastructure development in Eastern India.”
