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.

* 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.

These counters are also used for merchandising exercise, free religious booklets and product fliers are distributed free from theses counters with Everest branding.
