Victoria’s largest alpine resort, Falls Creek, has enlisted APN Outdoor’s digital formats in its innovative new winter campaign.
The clever creative taps into Melbourne’s fascination with the weather and brings Falls Creek to life via snow and weather updates in rail and roadside environments in the city.
The two-fold campaign utilises Elite Screens on some of Melbourne’s busiest roads and XtrackTV in the city loop to entice commuters with a taste of what’s on offer at Falls Creek, just a few hours’ drive away.
The high-quality LED and directional sound capabilities of APN Outdoor’s XtrackTV have been skillfully utilised, displaying the snow report across the CBD network.
Supporting the rail component is a series of weather-sensitive Elite Screens that use an RSS feed and a bespoke temperature trigger that updates the creative and brings the weather from the ski fields to passers-by.
Falls Creek’s senior marketing manager, Sophie Webber, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with APN Outdoor on the innovative ‘Escape the Melbourne Weather’ campaign. Falls Creek at its heart is all about celebrating alpine life with friends and family in a unique ski-in, ski-out resort.
“By connecting with families, ski and snowboard enthusiasts, and those who want to explore the best of Falls Creek, we’re confident the campaign will deepen their connections with the snow and inspire them with a winter getaway.”
APN Outdoor’s general manager of sales, Mark Fairhurst, said: “We are thrilled that Falls Creek has chosen our impressive digital portfolio to execute this clever campaign. We know XtrackTV has the potential to deliver the right message at a time when commuters are most receptive.
“Location and relevance to the consumer are boosting the impact of successful messaging.”
The campaign runs until throughout August and is exclusively booked with APN Outdoor.
