BizAsia has been selected as the official media partner for Asian Viewers Television Awards (AVTA) for the second year running.
After the success of the inaugural event last year, BizAsia will lend support to AVTA again. As part of its deal, BizAsia will bring exclusive updates leading up to the black-tie event. Furthermore, BizAsia will be covering the event on the night with live updates.
AVTA 2015 will be held at a prestigious venue in London on Saturday 3rd October. AVTA is the brainchild of Rajan Singh, who heads Digi Media Global and Lyca Media. AVTA will be fully interactive with viewers choosing winners from a shortlist of nominations, which again viewers will choose. The award categories include Best Entertainment Channel, Best Music Channel, Best News Channel, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actors and Lifetime Achievement Award, amongst others. This year, the event will see three new categories including Urdu Channel Of The Year, Punjabi Channel Of The Year and Bengali Channel Of The Year.
Last year, television heartthrob Karan Tacker hosted the event, with special appearances from Sanaya Irani, Mohit Sehgal, Vivian D’Sena and Vahbiz Dorabjee.
Raj Baddhan, Co-Founder of BizAsia said, ���We’re excited to be collaborating with AVTA again after last year’s grand success. The organisers have a much bigger show lined up for this year and we’re looking forward to stepping up our coverage too. This year we’ll be taking things to another level so expect the unexpected in October.”
Rajan Singh from Digi Media Global said, “After the fantastic relationship we had last year AVTA is pleased to team again this year with BizAsia. We have always seen this as a long term partnership between us. We believe the AVTA’s will grow into the most respected industry awards for the Asian Media.”
