Mumbai: MTV, the ultimate word on the youth is back again with yet another exciting edition of MTV Youth Marketing Forum. A day spent listening to content creators, youth icons and trend hunters, MTV Youth Marketing Forum is the flagship insights event by MTV to dissect the world of youth and share success stories about creating content and communication to keep them hooked. The Youth Marketing Forum 2016 is scheduled on the 29th of April 2016 in the capital city – New Delhi.

Every year, MTV undertakes a massive research to understand youth. The insights gathered from this research are then presented through interactive seminars and dialogues at the MTV Youth Marketing Forum. This year, MTV had conversations with more than 11,000 young people across 50 cities to put together one of the largest youth study in India. The study has reached out to NCCS A, B & C across the age bracket of 13-25 years to increase the robustness of the research. Aptly titled ‘The Many Me Project’, this MTV youth study explores the multi-dimensional and multi-achiever facets of the youth life. It will explore the plurality in youth lives, thoughts and expressions that seamlessly mirror through real and digital world, redefining the values, goals, ambitions and anxieties. The study delves into the youth attitude to love and career, their insatiable thirst for content and the emergent codes of new-age cool.

The new MTV study ‘The Many Me Project’ will be unveiled at the MTV Youth Marketing Forum 2016 by Ferzad Palia,Head, Youth and English Entertainment, Viacom18, who will be presenting the research findings to an audience made up of marketers from the biggest brands across the country and abroad, all keen on understanding this demographic. Speaking about the ‘The Many Me Project’, Ferzad Palia, Head, Youth and English Entertainment, Viacom18, said, “Being the country’s leading youth channel, it is of utmost importance for us at MTV to understand every minute detail about the youth. The Many Me Project has yielded some fascinating insights into the lives and minds of one of the biggest demographics in India. The fact that they’re multi-dimensional complex beings comes out strongly through this research study – an insight that will make every youth marketer pause before designing a product or any kind of communication aimed at this audience. Their fierce need to be unique, not perfect mind you, but unique, with flaws and all, is another interesting finding this research as thrown up. These and other important insights that we will be presenting at the forum are sure to change the way marketers view the youth of India today.”
