ABS GDH International (Pvt) Ltd

about us

Our ideas at Work are ideas that work… What began in 1980 as Pastor Advertising, with just a solitary employee, grew steadily and progressed into a fully-fledged advertising agency, registered with all media institutions in the country by 1984. By 1996, the time to evolve further had beckoned. As part of a BOI approved joint venture, the company was reborn as ABS Gardner Dixon Hall International (Pvt) Ltd.

For over the past 16 years we have successfully brought to life ideas and creative concepts that have in turn become crucial to our clients' many campaigns, We ask our client, what is it they want? The best slot in the Daily Newspaper? On the hottest Radio Shows? At peak time on TV? All these and more at reasonable rates? Done. It's all in a day's work for us.

We believe in giving our clients their full money's worth through complete turnkey advertising solutions, which are tailor made to fit their specific requirement (these also include PR related activities & promotions and event management). Thus, Whether our client requires advertising solutions for a broad ATL audience, a specific BTL group or even a complete 360 degree implementation, a tailor made solution from us is never far away.

Whether it is an imaginative, creative solution or even an effective conventional message that is needed, We provide our clients with the best fitting message through selected channels, to their consumers, through our armoury of creativity & understanding of Sri Lankan consumers and their mindset.
