Manjari Upadhye, CEO, Welspun Global Brands, Domestic Business said, “The competition among the agencies was fierce, and each one presented fantastic ideas, strategies, and data, which made our decision quite challenging. However, dentsu X stood out with its innovative approach, comprehensive understanding of our brand, and compelling vision for our consumer-centric marketing strategy. Bed and bath categories are traditionally considered commodity-driven. Our challenge lies in differentiating ourselves and elevating the brand value within this segment. As the largest spender in the Bed & Bath category over the past 2-3 years, we understand the importance of a robust media strategy to drive our growth. We have chosen to partner with dentsu X due to their exceptional track record in handling similar categories, which will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in shaping our strategies moving forward.”

This is much in line with dentsu X’s proposition of ‘experience beyond exposure’ and I am certain of them achieving many new milestones with this partnership.”

Relationships come from valuable experiences that all connect to tell amazing stories and this is what we would bring to foray at Welspun too. We aim to be laser-focused towards ensuring long-term & sustainable growth for the brand. Super excited to be part of this next phase of transformation with the team at Welspun.”
