During 2014, psLive will roll out to "all key Asia Pacific markets", according to the company.

The network will begin with rebranding existing experiential business in markets like India, Malaysia and Indonesia in the near future, Bhasin said. The India launch will be the first official announcement and will come "soon", the company added.

"psLive gives us a unique opportunity to offer diverse, professional experiential marketing solutions to our clients in APAC," Bhasin said. "Country specific, customized services will be offered spanning across activation, events, rural marketing, PR, partnerships and other areas, depending upon the needs of each market.”
