Everybody who took part went back smiling and “happy” (with “whose a happy table” ringing in their ears).

The Fund raisers in this Quarter by Table 3 and 42 in Area 2 gave a lot of publicity to RT movement in both Print and Radio media. Lior Surchard Where does one begin with ideal Publicity of RTI, LCI or the entire movement as a whole? With Logos of the same appearing in every poster, every ticket handed out, a dedicated facebook page and promotion we felt we reached out to people in a very positive way. 1. 6 Newspaper ads 2. 160 Radio Clippings 3. A pre-event press conference 4. Follow-up articles in Deccan chronicles, Ritz, etc 5. The Certified Round Table India Montage films were played in front of a crowd of over 1200.

Mumbai Express 2013 There have been about 15 press articles spread over 10 days with oodles of publicity for RTI, FTE, local tables and ofcourse MMRT 42. All the decked up autos have the RTI and the FTE logos printed boldly and these make a great statement. The documentary “Hit The Road – India” was shot in last year’s rally, got released this year, and is being downloaded in huge nos. as we read this. Its taking RTI, FTE and all of us to corners of the world like never before. We now are even featured in a magazine like the Vanity Fair.
