The brand communication will target pilgrims coming to Nashik Kumbh mela who primarily visit three locations - Ramghat and Trimbakeshwar for a holy dip; and for a darshan at Tapovan (a make shift city of Akharas).

An official release informs that Impact is organising activities at all the three locations to ensure optimum reach for these clients. Audio-visual show of religious software interspersed with client's ads is being shown at strategic locations at all three places.

The consumer is asked is open a locked box (having a Vim bar inside) by choosing an Azadee key among a lot of four. Three Pepsodent kiosks are positioned as free teeth-brushing centers for the pilgrims. Pepsodent-branded kiosks are operational in early morning hours at Tapovan and Trimbakeshwar.

* Eternit Everest who are market leaders in Asbestos Cement Sheets in Maharashtra have created three public information centres, in order to strengthen the emotional association of the brand during festival. To display their roofing sheets and e-boards these counters are fabricated with Everest products. These counters are also used for merchandising exercise, free religious booklets and product fliers are distributed free from theses counters with Everest branding.

In this year long Kumbh, Impact claims to have selected peak 45 days covering all-important bathing dates for these activities. These days will attract 80 per cent of the total expected pilgrim turnover.
