The Tale Of Our Efforts & Success
The Early Days
1997 must have seen a humble beginning, but OPIUM’s growth cutting through stringent competition and catering to a constantly demanding market, made it, in a very short period, one of the leading Entertainment & Production companies in India. It does not come as a surprise to us that all of our clients are happy with us & the new ones are mostly referred by our existing one.
Vision without a task is only a dream. A task without a vision is but drudgery. But vision with a task is a dream fulfilled! Delivering long term connections between brands and their consumers has been at the heart of Opium Group. This to us, comes from staying focused on the needs of brands and having a deep understanding of the consumers in their life-spaces.
We understand that across brand categories, staying connected with the consumer in a self engaging model works like magic. Since 1997 at Opium Group, we have built many such bridges between brands and their consumers, thus helping these brands to stay deeply rooted in the lives of their consumers.
