Mumbai: Canco Advertising founder and Indian advertising doyen Ramesh Narayan was inducted into the prestigious Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) Hall of Fame at the inaugural session of the AdAsia conference being held at Macao between 3 and 4 December.

Thanking AFAA for the honour, Narayan said, "I have had the amazing experience to be a part of an industry that keeps the wheels of our economies moving. That ensures more employment across the world. That gives individuals the right to choose. That educates, and entertains and spreads awareness."

The first day of the conference being held as a virtual event this year, was streamed into a hybrid event held at Mumbai to present the AFAA awards.

The event also saw Pradeep Guha posthumously inducted into the AFAA Hall of Fame for 2019 and Srinivasan Swamy being presented with the AFAA Special Merit Award for 2019. Swamy was recently elected AFAA chairman for a term of four years. 

"The AFAA Hall of Fame sets out to recognise the best of the very best. It’s for those who’ve defined a generation of advertising.  Those who we look up to, who inspire us. Who have done what few others have ever done or could ever do. For those who have pioneered. Those who have been on top, stayed there and will always be there. The very few we can call legends," said outgoing AFAA chairman Raymond So.

Narayan has earlier been honoured by the Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI) with their Lifetime Achievement Award, the International Advertising Association (Global) with their Global Champion Award, the India Chapter of the IAA with an induction into their Hall of Fame, the Public Relations Society of India with their Special Award, and the Association of Business Communicators of India (ABCI) with their Lifetime Achievement Award.
