WPP hosts ‘WPP Commerce 2022’ event, announces winners of Ignite awards

The event involved several workshops, sessions, and one-on-one engagements with some of India’s leading speakers, covering key areas of the world of commerce

WPP recently hosted its WPP Commerce event in Mumbai after a three-year hiatus. The event involved workshops, sessions, and one-on-one engagements with key industry leaders.

WPP India also announced the winners of the WPP Ignite awards, which were launched to recognise creative and tech brilliance across WPP and inspire its people and teams. The inaugural awards received over 250 entries.

The event featured keynote speeches from multiple industry leaders, including Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chairperson and CEO at Salesforce India who spoke about ‘Digital Commerce’. Kedar Lele, ED Customer Development, HUL and Head of CD-South Asia focused on the ‘Connected Approach between Consumer, Customer, and Commerce’, while Zepto’s Founder and CEO, Aadit Palicha, elaborated on ‘Quick Commerce Journeys’.

Key workshops on ONDC, Growth Through Ecommerce Analytics, OnDemand Commerce, and Real-Time Retail worked as a guide for brands, helping them connect with the right ecosystem and remain sustainable in their journey.

As innovation and technology are key growth pillars for commerce, the event also included a tech experience zone from partners, providing an immersive experience to help marketers identify the right solutions for their brands. 

The India event encompassed key sessions on digital commerce, the future of omnichannel, and how brands can benefit from using commerce along with WPP’s commerce offering. A wide range of topics, including future trends and today’s realities: insights and activation, design and experience, shopper marketing, direct-to-consumer, creativity, strategy, demand levers, and measurement were discussed throughout the day. 

The award winners are:

Tushar Vyas, President - Growth and Transformation, GroupM (South Asia), said, “WPP is a growth partner for clients, helping them build brand commerce presence, and awareness to drive online and retail sales for them. The category is now rapidly expanding.
