The Commune Set to Host Industry Roast 2.0

The Commune, a forum for advertising, media, PR and marketing communications professionals, is bringing up the second edition of its much popular and loved Industry Roast. Industry Roast 2.0, powered by Vidooly, an online video analytics suite, is now bigger, better & fiery. The roast is going to be held on February 08, Friday from 7.30pm to 9.00pm in Mumbai at Café Zoe, Lower Parel. 

This roast will be CLEAN, FUN yet BRUTALLY HONEST where leaders will roast each other's professions (not each other). Industry heavyweights such as Bobby Pawar (Chairman & CCO, Havas Group India), Prathyusha Agarwal (CMO, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited), Amaresh Godbole (CEO, Digitas India), Girish Huria (President, Ketchum Sampark), Mayank Shekhar (Entertainment Editor, Mid-Day) and Chetan Muley from Media Planning & Buying are donning the hats of roasters in this edition. This season will see standup comic Neville Bharucha as their roast master.

Announcing the second edition, Deepak Kapoor, Founder, The Commune, said, “Industry roast 2.0 is one such unique curated experience where we are using humor to engage the entire fraternity. This unique roast format is happening for the first time in India and globally. I am extremely grateful to the industry leaders and our partners for putting that trust on us and encouraging us in every way."

"What started off as an idea in 2016, The Commune has come a long way in mobilizing and bringing together different professions on a single platform. In the era of 360 degree communication, professionals from advertising, media, PR and marketing lack awareness about each other’s functions and their challenges.  We, at The Commune, are trying to bridge this awareness gap by bringing a fun and humorous way of interacting with each other and an opportunity to network." He added.

Industry Roast is an IP owned property of The Commune, conceptualized by its founder Deepak Kapoor.  This is worlds and India's first ever roast format that includes the otherwise much stressful and serious business functions.

The Commune Industry Roast 2.0 is managed by Robust Events along with G S Media Works as video production partner. Venue partner for the event is Café Zoe. The media partners on board include Zee Café, Fever 104 FM, Social Samosa and Curly Tales.

The first edition was held on January 18, 2018 in Mumbai. Senior leaders from Godrej Group, Mullen Lintas and Schbang roasted each other’s function. Having entertained over 100 professionals from the A&M industry in its first edition, The Commune Industry Roast 2.0 is targeting an audience crowd of 140-160.
