GUWAHATI: The Assam Tourism Department has begun promoting its ‘Awesome Assam’ campaign on a Bengaluru-bound train to tap the “limitless potential” of advertising through this medium.

The Kamakhya-Yasvantpur AC Express became the first such train on February 27 to be completely branded by the state government campaign on its exteriors, a release issued by Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) said.

The department plans to run the campaign on three NFR trains.

The Kamakhya-Yasvantpur AC Express, which covers a distance of around 3,025 km to reach Bengaluru, was flagged off by Assam Tourism Minister Chandan Brahma in the presence of other senior officials.

“The idea of vinyl wrapping of trains to tap the limitless potential of using train exteriors as a medium of advertisement was initiated by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal,” the NFR statement said, adding that the procedures were recently simplified by bringing the branding tariffs based on per-train basis.

After the simplification process, Assam became the “first state to grab the opportunity to use this unique advertising medium” for propagation of the ‘Awesome Assam’ campaign.

Stating that the train passes through many cities and towns across India en route to its destination, the release said there are “very good prospects” of this campaign providing a “quantum boost” to the tourism sector of Assam, owing to the high visibility.

Plans are also afoot to promote ‘Awesome Assam’ on trains travelling to destinations like Mumbai and Katra (Jammu and Kashmir). PTI
