The Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI) and Subhas Ghosal Foundation (SGF) have announced that Uday Shankar, president, The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific and chairman, Star and Disney India, will deliver this year's Subhas Ghosal Memorial Lecture.
Shankar will speak on 'Why have I been in media for 30 years'.
Ashish Bhasin, president, AAAI, said, “We are very happy that Uday Shankar will be delivering the AAAI Subhas Ghosal Memorial Lecture 2019. As a captain of the industry, Uday perhaps has the best visibility to all the facets of the broadcast and OTT industry and we look forward to hearing his views. I must also compliment Sam Balsara on behalf of the AAAI for driving this initiative with great gusto."
Sam Balsara added, “In a rapidly changing advertising world, TV continues to dominate ADEX and grow at a double digit rate. It will be interesting to hear Uday Shankar’s views on how the TV Industry has carved out a dominant share for itself in the advertising market and plays a very major role in the lives of majority of Indians, through the absorbing stories, that it puts out every day, 24X7.”
The event will be held on 11 November in Mumbai.
