Mumbai: The pandemic era which we passed through has seen an interesting shift in consumer behaviour towards small businesses and homegrown brands. This has fueled the need and importance of digital marketing as a platform to connect and reach out to more consumers. Owing to this accelerated business and rapid consumer shift towards digital, The Advertising Club is once again back with its third edition of D:CODE 2022, India’s Annual Digital Review.

The Advertising Club's third edition of D:CODE 2022, presented by Meta, will take place on 26 August 2022, at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Following the phenomenal success of the first two editions, the upcoming edition will see the best minds in digital, media, and marketing come together to address the evolving digital ecosystem.

D:CODE 2022 will see the following 10 industry leaders, including Dentsu Creative chief executive officer Amit Wadhwa; Google director-marketing partners Satya Raghavan; Hotstar executive VP and CMO Sidharth Shakdher; Jio Ads CEO Gulshan Verma; Luxury & Lifestyle Influencer and I-banking professional turned KOL Rizwan Bachav; Meta marketing director Avinash Pant; ONDC chief business officer Shireesh Joshi; S4 Capital chief executive officer-APAC Michel de Rijk; Starcom CEO Rathi Gangappa and Talented founder P G Aditiya. They will cover three areas in 10 minutes each: their own work they are proud of; the work of other brands that inspired them; and tips to crack the digital code in the year ahead.

Speaking about the third edition of the review, The Advertising Club president Partha Sinha, said, "The Advertising Club has been at the leading edge in driving several pioneering initiatives that truly define the current state of the media and advertising industry. With sustained efforts year on year, D:CODE has emerged as an engaging knowledge platform, providing a reason to "Inspire and be inspired". We are excited to present our third edition of the show with leading industry stalwarts from India and APAC whose insights and learnings will continue to celebrate the rapidly changing dynamics of the digital industry. With D:CODE 2022, The Advertising Club looks forward to creating yet another benchmark in the Indian media and advertising landscape and paving the way to unleashing the true potential of digital."

D-CODE chairperson Punitha Arumugam added, "We are excited to continue with the 10 minute per speaker format at D-CODE 2022. Our 10 speakers will showcase, in total, 20 digital case studies done in the past year and provide 30 tips to crack the digital code in the year ahead—all this in just one evening! We hope it will be a truly educative and immersive experience for the audience."
