Branded Cities to launch new digital spectacular media opportunity at New York’s Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal
New York, NY– February 01, 2022 – Branded Cities, an iconic Out-of-Home media company, announced today that their first digital spectacular at Manhattan’s Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal will launch in March of 2022. The deployment will be the first since Port Authority of New York and New Jersey awarded Branded Cities the exclusive right to develop and sell digital and spectacular advertising and integrated marketing campaigns at the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal and select areas at the George Washington Bridge Bus Station in Manhattan.
The digital spectacular, which will be located at the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal’s southeast corner at 8th Avenue and 40th Street, will provide advertisers with long site lines along the heavily trafficked 8th Avenue commuter corridor, with views as far back as Madison Square Garden and Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station. At over 1,000 square feet, sized 42’ 6” high x 25’ 2” wide, the full-motion and dynamic screen will target a mix of high-income consumers and business professionals traveling through Midtown Manhattan.
“Delivering large format digital signage to Midtown Manhattan is a fantastic opportunity for both the Port Authority and Branded Cities and signals the first step in what will be a long and fruitful partnership,” said Steve Ellman, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Branded Cities.
“We’re excited to partner with Branded Cities as they work to enhance the overall customer experience with new digital advertising assets at the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal,” said Leah Bassknight, Assistant Director, Real Estate. “The dynamic digital displays will welcome millions of passengers and passersby annually who traverse through the busiest bus station in the world.”
