This day long summit aims to take a deep dive into various perspectives from national and regional broadcasters, media agencies and content creators.  Tele-Wise’s first leg will take place on 6 August at the ITC Grand Chola in Chennai.

While Tamil Nadu boasts of a vibrant TV ecosystem, industry watchers are convinced there is scope to push the envelope on content, advertising and distribution fronts.With ‘Power of Television’ as its theme, the objective of Tele-Wise Tamil is to bring together industry stakeholders to understand and find potential solutions to issues faced by broadcasters &advertisers in the state.

The inaugural edition of indiantelevision.com’s Tele-Wise Tamil promises to deliver great value in terms of insightful panel discussions and powerful debates.”, said Ravish Kumar, Head of Regional TV Network, Viacom18.
