New Delhi-based NetworkPlay Media has partnered with UK-based DMG Events to bring digital marketing, media and advertising event ad:tech in India. Delhi NCR will be the first city in India to host the event on April 27-28, 2011 at Kempinski Hotel in Gurgaon.

According to NetworkPlay, India’s demographics provide ample reason to get excited about the internet market’s potential for stellar growth. A World Bank study shows every 10 percentage point increase in broadband penetration leads to a 1.38 percentage point increase in per-capita gross domestic product growth in developing economies.
According to PwC Entertainment and Media Outlook 2010 report, with increased internet usage, internet advertising is projected to grow by over 20 per cent over the next five years. As the online India grows, advertisers are becoming aware of internet’s broad influence and ability to create an opportunity to inform/engage the audience.
