With the Rio 2016 Olympic Games underway and the medal tally growing for the @AusOlympicTeam, APN Outdoor are bringing the latest from Rio; medal updates, social feeds and a running leaderboard, to the streets of Australia through the power of Digital Outdoor.
Embarking on a long term partnership earlier this year, APN Outdoor and the Australian Olympic Committee had the joint vision of sharing the Olympic Spirit with the Australian community in a way they had not yet explored until this year.
Engaging APN Outdoor as a media partner has allowed the Australian Olympic Team to communicate with Australians when they are out and about, on the road and in their local communities. The ability to showcase and congratulate Aussies athletes, from their moment of selection to their results straight from Rio, and share this in near real time with the fans and supporters back in Australia, adds an exciting element to this year’s Olympic campaign.
Richard Herring chief executive, APN Outdoor commented “We are truly honored to be an Australian Olympic Team Partner and take our responsibility to bring the Olympic spirit to the streets very seriously. In the lead up to the Games we have shared some amazing moments with regards to selection and qualification and now the Games are here it’s all about the action in Rio.
“Since the Opening Ceremony on August 5th we have already shared more than 120 creative variations across our National Portfolio of Elite Screens. This partnership has been an amazing platform to not only showcase the Australian Olympic Team but also to showcase our leading digital assets, their ability to react in real time, share incredible moments through live feeds and bring this to the streets across Australia.”
