Ambient Group has announced it has been awarded the Auckland Transport (AT) outdoor advertising contract for a nine year term including options. This strategic media partnership will see AT outdoor assets progressively consolidate under a single advertising platform to be represented by Ambient Group.
Together, AT and Ambient Group will develop a world class large and small format digital out-of-home network.
This network will be the largest digital network in New Zealand providing advertisers with high frequency and mass audience reach.

Ambient will work closely with Auckland Transport to ensure this system is coupled with a world class advertising network.

We’re delighted that Auckland Transport tasked us with this great responsibility, and we’re excited to deliver an advertising solution that will change the face of the outdoor industry.
