The run-up to the event saw numerous online and on-campus competitions being held, with teams from the best B-schools across the country competing in terms of creativity, talent and marketing potential.

The event kicked off with a digital media workshop by Mr. Amit Tripathi- the CEO of Ideate Labs. The workshop began with a very intriguing statement: ‘Welcome to the funeral of digital media…’ and then went on to discuss how being digital has gone beyond just media channels like Facebook and twitter, to become all pervasive in other walks of life as well.

Mr. Tripathi left the students with two important insights: that simplicity and finding common ground between the company and the consumer are the mantra to successful marketing.
