The Hyundai Alcazar makes a global debut; the OOH campaign has been executed by Laqshya Media Group.


There was a time when owning an SUV was a luxury. But with the advancing technology and growing demand, these large utility vehicles have overtaken the automotive market. Not just in India, but the market overseas, SUVs; huge, compact and subcompact are selling like crazy. Amidst this, here in India Hyundai is in the top league in delivering big vehicles to its customers. That said, with the generation change of the Hyundai Creta last year, the company has big plans of introducing a 6/7-seater SUV in this competitive market, the 'Alcazar'.

Running across 360-degree advertising channels, the communication strategy has also been taken to the OOH medium with an aim to promote the new car. In association with Laqshya Media, the brand strategically planned the media deployment for the campaign. The campaign is a teaser to announce the name - Hyundai ALCAZAR. It is a 30-day campaign in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. The main aim was to announce the name with a bang and create curiosity in the mind of the TG for the new SUV model. The outdoor sites chosen for the campaign and innovations done were on large format medias only, to match with the grandness of ALCAZAR.

Laqshya's proprietary OOH Planning Tool, SHARP (Strategic Hyperlocal AI-aided Reach Planner) and experienced media planning team chose strategic sites to create maximum impact and create a buzz around the new launch. Special innovations were done on maximum sites which added to the visibility and created a lot of impact for the campaign. The concept was suggested by Innocean worldwide and executed by Laqshya Media.
