Zee and Kyoorius have also announced the launch of IAA Kyoorius Digiyatra in association with IAA India Chapter. Rajesh Kejriwal, founder and CEO, Kyoorius, says, "We are gaining great momentum and greater support not just from the creative industry but rather the entire communications and marketing sphere. This year is special - we have some amazing partnerships and none more special than our partnership with Zee. Together, we would concentrate all our efforts towards influencing the influencers with the agenda that they could 'create change'. And we hope to nurture this relationship and associate with Zee for the long term."

Bharat Ranga, chief content and creative officer, ZEE, says, "Kyoorius Designyatra has always been a brilliant platform for connecting with the communicators of India, creating inspiration and fuelling growth and change. We are glad to come on board as Kyoorius' corporate partner and support the development of creativity in marketing and communications for the nation - communication that can make a real difference."

Srinivasan K Swamy, president, IAA - India Chapter, states, "IAA is delighted to partner with Kyoorius to present IAA Kyorius Digiyatra. IAA has been focused on 'digital' side of communication business where we see a vacuum in knowledge. We have launched IAA Mentorship Webinars under the theme "world goes digital" and three events have already taken place. In early August, we will have a seminar on "Real Estate in a Digitized World". The IAA Kyoorious Digiyatra has shaped up well and I am sure the delegates are in for a great learning experience."

For the record, Kyoorius is an initiative by Transasia Fine Papers and has been championing design in the creative world through Kyoorius Designyatra and publications such as Kyoorius Design Showcase and the Kyoorius Magazine.
