The story.
Brandmela.

The seed was sown in early-nineties with the opening up of the economy and subsequent media proliferation making targeting a brand TG a huge ask. This team recognized BTL as the big opportunity then and began offering solutions for a wide variety of TGs. Nearly a decade later the large fish among advertising agencies finally decoded its merits and set up in house BTL shops.
