Ad Club Bangalore to host webinar to discuss COVID-19 impact on media industry

It will explore ways to overcome the pandemic-induced economic downturn

MUMBAI: The Advertising Club Bangalore will host a webinar on 7 April, 2020 focusing on COVID-19’s impact on the advertising industry. According to the organisers, the webinar will help industry professionals equip themselves with the knowledge to tide through the economic downturn caused by the virus.

Vincent Dong, President Ad - Vice Software & Consulting Inc, widely acknowledged as one of the finest in the business, will conduct the webinar, sharing insights from his diverse experience ranging over three decades. He is expected to shed light on the immediate steps agencies should be taking to prepare for the recession, as well as tips on how to stay stable in these trying times.

Sharing his thoughts about the ongoing situation, Laeeq Ali, President of The Ad Club Bangalore and Co-founder of Origami Creative and Bloombox Brand Engineers, said: “There are times when you are thinking and wondering how to recalibrate or re-engineer your business. Uncertainty is all around us and many thoughts would be running through the minds of the leaders.”

The Advertising Club Bangalore executive director Arvind Kumar says: 'The media and advertising industry - across the spectrum - have been distressed due to the impact of the lockdown on account of Covid-19. Businesses are unsure about what is there in the immediate future, particularly in the next three months, as businesses are at a standstill, supplies flying off shelves and logistics being a concern. This is a beginning of a series of initiatives envisaged by The Ad Club - Bangalore to help find some answers to various problems of the industry. This is a joint fight as the current environment might lead to a recession and it might take months to recover from it. We hope various constituents of our industry will take part in this Webinar, in the process of coping with and handling this unfortunate situation."

Tune in to the webinar on Tuesday, 7 April at 7 pm for 'Ad-Vice' on agency operations, finance, consulting, and software consulting to ensure that your business stays prepared to face challenges and emerge a winner.
