Experiential marketing has been around for about two decades. Naysayers have considered it to be a buzzword and they have expected it to exit stage left more than once in the past. However, it has held its limelight quite gracefully due to the immersive experience it offers the target audience.

Neither was it a part of the main cast nor did it contribute significantly to the final box office profits. It has taken over two decades to change that. It was gradual but essential.
