The winds of inspiration for the formation of The Advertising Club in Bombay blew from the east – the Advertising Club of Calcutta, to be precise. That’s not surprising if you knew that, in the pre-independence days, it was not Bombay but Calcutta that enjoyed the enviable position of being the country’s business centre. The foundations of the Advertising Club were laid in 1954, when SoliTalyerkhan to join Voltas got in touch with Bobby Sista, having arrived in Bombay from Calcutta.
The Advertising Club is responsible for four of the most respected awards in the advertising and allied industries
