In 1982 at the Asian Games, Doordarshan the national broadcaster introduced Color Television and the rest is history! During the 2010 Games, India is prepared to take another giant leap- transmission in High Definition (HD)! The Games will showcase India’s economic progress, work ethic, infrastructure preparedness and sustainability, and attract even more business into the country. Along with projecting its economic and infrastructure development, it is also an opportunity to prove India’s sporting capabilities. The Games are a good chance to set an example and motivate a new generation of sportsmen.
The grandeur and excitement of the Games will be used to encourage kids and parents to take up gymnastics, badminton, athletics, table tennis, hockey, aquatics and various other games seriously. A diverse and accomplished sports community will boost India’s image as a global player.
The Commonwealth Games will cost more than $2.5bn, making it the most expensive Games ever. In comparison, the Melbourne Games in 2006 cost $1.1bn.
In the next few weeks we will launch a campaign to create awareness in the United Sates and have planned a series of events starting with formal Press launch. The campaign will include upcoming events in New York City, New Jersey as well as throughout the country along with Print & Television Media and online efforts.
This is a great opportunity for media houses and corporations to build alliance with India as country and South Asian Community in the United States in an event of national pride.
We invite you as a partner for the Highlights Package in the United States.
