Zenith Mena launches specialist content unit
Dubai, January 22, 2013
Zenith Mena, a leading global media services agency, has launched a specialist branded content division in the region, which aims to generate original content by leveraging a plethora of engagement opportunities.
Newcast, the new unit, will center on all forms of non-traditional and multimedia communication channels, a company statement said. Those include media partnerships, sports sponsorships, digital content platforms, ‘live’ ROI techniques, experiential marketing campaigns, radio promotions and product placements.
“Today, with traditional push advertising on the decline and an over-saturated media environment, true value exchange is key,” said CV Suvi, managing director, Newcast Mena.
“Brands therefore require an expert division that can effectively tap into consumer passion points and deliver ‘live’ experiences. The power of value reciprocity is undeniable and strongly validated by our proprietary study TouchPoints – a tool designed to measure and plan improvements in marketing ROI across all consumer contacts.”
Comprising a vast team of specialists, Newcast is set to bring non-traditional solution development and execution to the region, he added.
“The establishment of Newcast in the region further cements Zenith’s leading position as a stellar communication partner committed to providing clients with an all-encompassing and integrated approach,” said Firas El Zein, CEO of Zenith Mena.
“With our cutting-edge performance marketing company- Performics, the subsequent acquisition of Resultrix and now the launch of Newcast, we believe Zenith Mena is catapulted to the forefront of a highly competitive industry, further reinforcing its value proposition as a pioneering ROI agency,” he added.
Newcast currently operates in 10 markets with 16 offices worldwide.
