Our Vision

“Not Just An Ordinary Disruption”

Our predictions and intuitions about the world in which we operate could be abysmally wrong. We get taken aback when unexpected competitors burst on the scene. We are surprised when businesses protected by deep moats of resources and loyalty find their defenses breached. We are startled when new markets erupt from nothing.

Welcome to the world of a new economic and unique business dynamics, where the classical rules of thriving in business have yielded place to a fluid and perpetually shifting locus of competitiveness. It is creating a radical and transformative impact on every business, including media. All conventional businesses would be disrupted by unusual suspects and non-linear offensives. Consequently, all competitive advantages have become transient and new grammar has to evolve to ensure future sustenance

It is true that the media sector has largely remained insulated from the turbulence that other sectors like telecom, retail, and airlines have been experiencing. It is quite possible the comfort zone that media sector have been enjoying might get Uberised by players who might not own any media. Dramatic changes in business models are unearthing a fissure in traditional approaches to strategy and the way real world is working now. The arrival of Generation Z in the consideration set is only compounding the complexities.

The 9th Annual INMA South Asia News Media Conference will not be business as usual. Under the theme, “Not Just An Ordinary Disruption,” we will employ “unconference” concepts. We will co-calibrate with the delegates, learn from non-media sectors, and try to extrapolate key takeaways to our media sector. From this engagement, you — the avid learners of business, marketing and advertising — will get exposed to never-before-learnings of the new facts of business life and from the speakers and practitioners who have been engaged in ground combat on a real-time basis. And from this angle, we have christened it as Unconference, as we won't offer you anything conventional.

Come and join in this cognitive journey of learning the combative technique of countering extraordinary disruption.

Strategies News Media Executives Can Adopt to Grow in Today's Age of Disruption

Organisations around various sectors — be it incumbent, emergent or de novo ones — are forging new path to winning, exploring opportunities fast and cheap, leveraging them for some time and move on before their potential is exhausted. How can one identify the new growth outliers from unusual and non-linear sources? How an incumbent organisation simultaneously balance stability and agility to handle short-term volatility while keeping their eyes on the long-term horizon?

A CEO Panel : Disruption = Opportunity²

Content czars are now at a juncture of history where existing business models are under attack, and one doesn't know the location of the attacker. What does one do when the dominant business model is under question? What happens when advertiser becomes a media owner? How would one combat a media owner who doesn't own a media? How does a media company compete when its consumer becomes a creator of content? Will media organisations be ultimately Googlised, Facebookised, Whatappised or Instagramised? In this panel of South Asian media company CEOs, find out the answers to these questions.

Who attacks and why? How does disruption translate into incumbent responses? Are lessons in disruption different across sectors? Or are they similar?

These and other questions will be touched in this session where we will be joined by disruption evangelists from Indian organisations.

Where Advertising Is Going Next in South Asia

With the accelerated pace of technology, globalisation, and changing consumer culture suddenly an asymmetry emerged between safety zone and comfort zone. Who is whose customer? Are the new upstart digital agencies might move the cheese for the analogue-skewed players? Is revenue maximisation objective of the media owners in sharp contrast with the investment optimisation objective of the advertisers and the advertiser agencies? Hear the answers to these when INMA hears the voice of India's leading advertisers in this riveting panel discussion.
