Speaking to Campaign India, Shivaji Dasgupta, business head and branch manager, Rediffusion Y&R, Kolkata said, “This year, we will focus on the Bangalore market where the brand will launch first. We are looking at intensive multi-engagement consumer contact. We will use a lot of unconventional media and there will be less focus on the traditional media like print. We will also look at consumer touch-points and in-store advertising.”

Samar Singh Sheikhawat, VP – marketing, Spencer’s Retail said, “Rediffusion Y&R have been part of Spencer’s journey for almost three years now, and we have seen work of an exceptionally high standard on that. Awarding them the ABP account was a natural progression of the faith and trust we have in the team, and we are confident that we will see the same quality of work on this business as well.”
