Television to host first ever CAS summit on TV ad scenario post CAS

MUMBAI: India's First ever CAS Summit on the TV Advertising Scenario Post CAS will be held on 4 July at the Hyatt Regency Mumbai.


Hosted by, the National CAS Media Summit has over 300 trade professionals scheduled to attend the event that will be a meeting ground for advertisers, media planners/buyers, broadcasters and market researchers. Associate sponsors for the summit so far are Media Reach Research India Pvt Ltd and Broadband Pacenet India Pvt Ltd. 

The burning issue of whether advertisers will begin shunning pay channels after the 14 July deadline will be addressed at the summit from the advertisers' point of view, the media professionals' angle and the broadcasters' side too. At the same time, the question of FTA channels benefiting in terms of ad revenue at the cost of the pay channels will also be deliberated upon by all three. The hitherto unexplored option of cable channels and whether they too stand to benefit from the implemention of conditional access systems in the country will also be touched upon.


Meenakshi Madhvani, eminent media professional , Sandip Tarkas, president, Media Planning Group, Sameer Nair, COO, Star India Ltd, Kunal Dasgupta, CEO, SET India, Pranav Barua, Godrej Ltd, Paulomi Dhawan, Raymonds, Amit Ray, VP, Optimum Media (Mudra), Divya Radhakrishnan, VP, The Media Edge, and Ashutosh Shrivastava, GM, planning, Mindshare, are some of the panellists who will speak on the issues touched upon.

While audience measurement for television has thus far been the preserve of ratings like TAM, CAS is poised to usher in an era that will force us to look beyond ratings. A panel comprising experts like TAM India CEO LV Krishnan, media expert Raj Nayak, ETC Networks business head Jagjit Singh Kohli and Media Research marketing VP Kapil Anand will attempt to unravel the logistics involved. 

CAS may well be the necessity that will foster a series of innovations on the part of all players connected to the television industry. Sam Balsara, chairman, Madison Communications Ltd, Ravi Kiran GM south & west, Starcom Worldwide, Vikram Sakhuja, managing director, Mindshare Fulcrum South Asia, M Suku, national director, Broadmind , Jasmin Sohrabji Grey Worldwide and a senior representative from Pacenet will attempt predictions based on their vast experience to envision what kind of innovations the morrow will bring.

Pacenet, Hathway, Siticable and In Cablenet, the major players in the STB arena, will demonstrate their products and their respective merits at the summit. 

The moderators of the various sessions at the summit will be Anil Wanvari, founder and CEO, Indian Television Dot Com, Thomas Abraham, managing editor, and Samir Kale, president, CMCG.
