15 Creative Agencies empanelled for the global Incredible India campaign

Ministry of Tourism has empanelled 15 creative agencies for the global Incredible India campaign.

The 15 empanelled agencies include Mudra, Lowe, Contract, W+K, Dentsu Marcom, TBWA India, Mercantile Advertising, Stark Communications, Crayons, Critique, Quantum, Basic Four, FS Advertising, IBD India and India Tourism Development Corporation’s creative wing (also known as Ashok Creatives). The ad spends are estimated to be more than Rs 120 crore for the global campaign.

The 15 agencies have been appointed for a period of two years. Recently, four agencies – Crayons, Euro RSCG, Span Communications and ZenithOptimedia – were appointed to handle the media duties for Incredible India.

While this is news of the global campaign, the creative and media duties for the domestic one will be decided much later. It is learnt that popular actor Aamir Khan has been appointed brand ambassador for the domestic campaign, and since he is currently busy with some other assignments, the ministry will work out the details once he is back in action.
