Event management company Percept D'Mark has conjured up a series of online-offline promotional campaigns for the launch of Platinum.

Each experience is targetted at roping in sampling through experiences tailor made for the "Platinum" consumer. The profile of the target consumer is as follows: the discerning individual who can make his own decisions instead of blindly following the pack. "Platinum Ignites" will use both conventional and unconventional entertainment and leisure activities as platforms through a wide 360 degree marketing effort.

A press release informs that the first 'Platinum Ignites' event (held at city hotspot Velocity) to held in Mumbai on 12 April 2003, is a fusion of the Brazilian Carnival with the appeal of Bollywood; Mumbai's own rock group sensation, Pentagram, will perform at the event (courtesy the Bombay Rock Association).
