Zee Entertainment Television at Nauchandi Mela: A Spectacular Experience by MarketMen
When Zee Entertainment Television Pvt. Ltd. decided to participate in the Nauchandi Mela for the second consecutive year, they had one goal in mind: to make it bigger and better than ever. Having successfully managed Zee’s presence at the mela in the previous year, MarketMen was the natural choice to bring this vision to life. And so we did, with a stall that was not just a stall, but a spectacle.
Zee wanted a grand presence at the mela, and what could be grander than a 60 ft x 40 ft inlit stall designed to capture attention from every angle? But we at MarketMen decided to take it a step further. Instead of settling for static branding, we introduced an 80 ft x 6 ft outdoor LED display with curved front corners, turning the stall into a dynamic visual experience.
The 3D Anamorphic Display
To add another layer of innovation, we recommended a 3D anamorphic display featuring Zee’s logo and snippets from their popular TV serials. This wasn’t just any video; it was a specially crafted visual treat designed and executed by MarketMen. The 3D anamorphic display was not just eye-catching; it was mesmerizing, drawing crowds like a magnet.
The stall was a marvel of design and technology, fully inlit to ensure maximum visibility. The LED display and 3D anamorphic visuals were programmed to offer a seamless experience, ensuring that the brand message was not just seen but felt. Every element was meticulously planned and executed to perfection, making the stall the talk of the mela.
The Nauchandi Mela, a 24-day event, saw participation from more than 10 lakh people, and Zee’s stall was a landmark that no one could miss. The footfall at the stall was overwhelming, and the engagement was beyond anything we had anticipated. The stall didn’t just promote Zee; it celebrated the brand, making it a part of the cultural fabric of the mela.
The MarketMen Edge
Our experience in creating impactful brand experiences came to the fore in this project. From the initial concept to the final execution, every step was a testament to MarketMen’s commitment to innovation and excellence. The result was a campaign that exceeded expectations and set new benchmarks for experiential marketing.
The collaboration between Zee Entertainment Television Pvt. Ltd. and MarketMen at the Nauchandi Mela was not just successful; it was historic. It redefined what a brand stall could be and set a new standard for engagement and impact.

Dabbawala Sampling: A Revolutionary Campaign by MarketMen
In the bustling city of Mumbai, where time is of the essence, the dabbawalas have been a lifeline for office-goers for decades.

Execution and Reach
The campaign was meticulously planned and executed, reaching an astounding 215,000 offices across Mumbai.

This dual touchpoint strategy ensured maximum visibility and engagement for the brand.
The MarketMen Edge
What made this campaign truly groundbreaking was MarketMen’s expertise and experience in innovative marketing solutions. Having been the first to initiate dabbawala sampling campaigns in 1998, we brought our extensive knowledge to the table, ensuring the campaign’s success. Our history of managing more than 50 such campaigns for different brands provided us with the insights needed to make the KKK campaign a resounding success.
The campaign was not just a marketing gimmick; it was a cultural phenomenon. Offices buzzed with excitement as dabbawalas in KKK attire and Akshay Kumar masks made their rounds, and social media was flooded with pictures and videos, creating a viral effect that went beyond the city of Mumbai.
The Numbers Speak
With a reach extending to 215,000 offices and an equal number of households, the campaign generated unparalleled brand awareness and engagement. The ROI was phenomenal, making it one of the most successful marketing campaigns in the history of Indian television.
