Mumbai, March 3, 2020: HGS Interactive, a business unit of Hinduja Global Solutions Limited (HGS) (Listed on NSE & BSE, India), has designed an immersive web experience for phase 2 of Gulf Oil’s campaign – Pick-Up Your Dream. The campaign objective is to draw attention to Gulf Oil’s products by giving a platform to people to express their passion for Cricket, keeping in mind India’s love for the sport and upcoming IPL edition.

The campaign comes with a fully responsive webpage - compatible on desktop, tablets and smartphones to create awareness about the online and on-ground challenges.

The webpage also features an interactive map that showcases the venue and schedule of the cricket trials.
