Airport advertising gets a good decluttering
May 2nd 2012, 07:54
Continental Outdoor Mediaâs billboard strategy at airports has successfully decluttered the space as well as created a better solution for marketers.
âOur outdoor campaigns have become extremely focused towards certain target audiences in airports. So if a client like Visa wants to target a business traveller for instance, the campaign will be executed in a business class lounge and not duplicated in a meet and greet area. We now allow the client to own a particular airport âzoneâ,â said Shane Thompson, Continental Outdoor Media general manager.
In zones, such as passport control, Continental Outdoor Media showcases clientsâ work on large bulkhead structures. In addition, the company has invested in superstructures or gantries that suspend over several traffic lanes at airport entries and exits. âThe advert on a gantry billboard is the passengerâs first and last impression when entering and exiting the airports,â he said. These gantries vary in size from 240 square metres and 81 square metres.
âIn essence we devise a solution for the client â do they want adverts at passport control, in the duty-free zone or at restaurants? The art is to be able to know how to reach a chosen market,â said Thompson.
Continental Outdoor Mediaâs airport advertising clients include Standard Bank, Visa and Motorola. Click here for more information on Continental Outdoor Media
