Aidem Ventures has been appointed as the media representative for The Economist online business in India.
Announcing the appointment, Inez Albert, Digital Sales Director – The Economist Group (Asia/Pacific) Ltd. said, “We look forward to strengthening our business presence in India by appointing Aidem Ventures as our representative in India. This partnership, enhanced with Aidem’s business acumen and expertise in the field, will ensure that our commitment of sharing world views and unbiased news reaches out to all stakeholders in the Indian market.”

 

Speaking on the appointment, Suprio Guha Thakurta, Managing Director, India at The Economist Group said, “We have appointed a strategic sales partner in Aidem and going by their domain expertise (news and digital), we are certain that we can take our online business to new heights in India.”

 

Neena Dasgupta, Head, Digital & International Business – Aidem Ventures, said, “We are very excited with this mandate to enhance the advertising potential of a credible, global and iconic media brand like The Economist in India. As India continues to integrate strongly with the world economy, an increasing number of Indian companies and brands are looking at expanding their footprint globally, and are seeking robust global media platforms to build their brands to ensure a sustained engagement with the consumers. Aidem, with its extensive experience and track record in the news and digital space, is best equipped to partner with The Economist Online to strengthen their presence in the Indian market.”

 

It is estimated that the advertising expenditure by Indian entities (like Incredible India) and companies (private and public sector) in the international markets would be around US $ 100 million. With new emergent sectors like medical tourism, software companies, telecommunications, spiritual and wellness tourism, it is anticipated that there will be brisk growth in the years ahead.
