Partho Dasgupta, CEO, BARC India and Chairman, Marquee Awards, said, “At the outset, I would like to congratulate the winners of Marquees 2018. The awards are a recognition of your efforts and contribution to the world of marketing. I hope these awards are a stepping stone for creating transparent and credible marketing initiatives that will reinforce the brand values of your company and connect deeper with your stakeholders.”

Taking the conventional route is usually the easiest and safest route for brands. However, some brands opted for the road less travelled and succeeded against the odds.

The awards evaluated brand performance objectively, with data from Kantar IMRB thus making the winners a truly “Marquee” property. The award recognised the brand custodians and all aspects of marketing – price, product, presence and promotion that resulted in a game-changer moment for the brand.
