MONTREAL, May 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Astral Out-of-Home, a division of
Bell Media, announced today the deployment of 14 new innovative
advertising structures in the heart of Montréal's lively Quartier des
Spectacles. The installation will be complete by the end of May.
"Astral Out-of-Home is proud of this partnership with the Quartier des
Spectacles," said Luc Quétel, President, Astral Out-of-Home. "We've
worked hard to ensure our new structures are erected just in time for
summer and the excitement of festival season."
The out-of-home advertising columns - eight of which are digital - were
custom-created by the renowned designer Michel Dallaire to reflect the
unique, modern, and vibrant character of Montréal's Quartier des
Spectacles. With the addition of these digital columns, Astral
Out-of-Home reinforces its leadership in the digital landscape with a
total of 40 faces all located in downtown Montréal.
As a result of a partnership with the Ville-Marie borough, Astral
Out-of-Home, and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, these new
structures give advertisers the opportunity to reach a large number of
festival-goers and visitors in a downtown area frequented by 47,000
workers and 45,000 students every day. They will also be used by the
city for messages that will contribute directly to promoting Montréal's
artistic and cultural vitality.
