During 2014, psLive will be rolled out to all key Asia Pacific markets. Dentsu Aegis Network South Asia chairman and CEO Ashish Bhasin will take on the additional role of chairman APAC, Posterscope and psLive – Asia Pacific.
Dentsu Aegis Network Asia Pacific CEO Nick Waters said, “psLive will play an important role in Asia Pacific, particularly in key markets like ANZ, South East Asia and India. We see this as a fast growth area for our business in the years to come.”
Detailing the plans for psLive in APAC, Bhasin said: “We will begin with rebranding our existing, vibrant experiential business in markets like India, Malaysia and Indonesia in the near future, to psLive.

Country specific, customized services will be offered spanning across activation, events, rural marketing, PR, partnerships and other areas, depending upon the needs of each market.”

Our network operating model means that we will be able to bring media insight into brand experience, which will ensure we deliver relevant innovation to our clients.”
