MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) has instituted the Zee Mindspace Awards to give recognition to brands.

The awards ceremony will be held on 27 August at #ZEEMelt 2016 in the capital.

ZEE Mindspace Awards aim to serve as an additional independent barometer for marketers. It will recognize the overall marketing mix implemented by the brand owners to carve a mindspace within the consumers.

ZEEL chief business officer Sunil Buch said, "Achieving 'consumer mindspace' is every marketer's ultimate goal. The thought of extending our three-year old brand intellectual property 'ZEE Mindspace' also as an awards property was based on this very essence. The marketing fraternity is an integral part of our overall business value chain, and in today's digital era it is indeed a challenge for the marketers to arrive at the right marketing mix. The proof of the pudding is being present in the 'Mindspace', which is the foundation of ZEE Mindspace Awards."

The network has partnered with market research company Nielsen to execute a nationwide research to identify brands which have created maximum impact on the minds of the consumers. The primary criteria to arrive at the winning brands are popularity, advocacy, desire and buzz. Brands which have a top of mind recall are also a part of the structured research methodology.

Nielsen has targeted a sample size of 12000+ audiences, covering key zones across the country.

The winning brands will be awarded at the ZEE Mindspace Awards 2016 in the presence of over 500 CMOs and stalwarts from the marketing and advertising industry.

Nielsen South Asia MD Prashant Singh said, "Nielsen's research methodology is a brand assessment among consumers who have adopted new age media in addition to traditional media and provides brand owners' insights into how brands are adapting to this fast-evolving space. More than 12000 online surveys were conducted to evaluate 288 brands across 36 categories. The research was broken into multiple phases - from initial screening of brands to final rounds focusing on understanding what makes a brand resonate in the consumer's mind. The winners were identified after undertaking a rigorous process, based on top-of-mind recall, popularity, the kind of advocacy the brand commands, the desire to own the brand and finally the buzz it generates. Above all, it's the brand's ability to pop-up in mind at the first instance that holds maximum weightage."

#ZEEMelt 2016 will also witness the 4th edition of Zee Mindspace Conference which aims at bringing the marketing fraternity together to connect, discuss and explore new possibilities. The sessions under conference comprise of two main themes: Previewing tomorrow – where one gets insights into the future of several areas in the industry, and Open possibilities which introduces the many advantages that data, content, consumer analysis and branding offer in transforming businesses.
