ADELAIDE: Australia’s leading Outdoor Media operator, APN Outdoor, have announced another successful tender win, this time for the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s Adelaide Metro contract. The new contract encompasses the advertising rights for nearly 900 buses, 24 trams and 136 train cars across the city and CBD.
APN Outdoor has held the Adelaide Metro contract since 2005, encompassing a range of transport formats and this one contract gives total coverage to all areas of metropolitan Adelaide and the City incorporating the depots of Morphettville, Mile End, Port Adelaide and Glengowrie plus through separate agreements the South Australian regions of Mt Barker, Mt Gambier and Port Pirie.
APN Outdoor is without peer in the Transit advertising sector and the format remains a strategically important part of the company’s portfolio. A recent study conducted in partnership with Neuro-Insight Market Research and The Lab found that the Transit formats were up to two times more effective than static Outdoor advertising formats, highlighting the ability of movement to draw attention to creative messages.
APN Outdoor’s CEO, Richard Herring, commented “The Adelaide landscape is synonymous with trams, buses and trains and as a company we realise the importance of the continued relationship with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
