/R E P E A T/ - Madigan partners with Sony and Transat Tours to launch new spectacular outdoor advertsing network in Canada

    MONTREAL, Nov. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Madigan Communications is launching a
revolutionary and spectacular outdoor advertising network using scaffolds on
restoration sites as their backing. This concept, developed by Madigan, is
both simple and efficient: it offers an alternative to mandatory protective
nets and great outdoor advertising opportunities, while providing a mandatory
replacement and safety service to workers and pedestrians walking by
restorations sites.
    "We are providing a threefold added value; unique advertising locations,
adding security and improving city landscape via a high quality visual in
urban centers undergoing major restorations. Global advertisers are always
looking for out of the box concepts and our spectacular scaffolds
installations are a true innovative static outdoor advertising and promotional
opportunity" said Jean-Claude Henri, president of Madigan.
    Madigan launches this spectacular advertising network in downtown
Montreal, while currently in development in Toronto and Vancouver markets.
    "Our business development plan will be focused on advertisers looking to
optimise their branding, namely LG, Apple, Samsung, Panasonic, L'Oreal, and
Chanel" added Jean Claude Henri, "while we are also simultaneously developing
new properties to provide advertisers with a strong downtown locations
    In downtown Montreal, you will see the spectacular Sony Bravia campaign
currently installed on the façade of The Bay at Ste Catherine and Union
Streets. Sony has opted to be part of Madigan spectacular network launch in
Montreal, following a recommendation from their advertising agency (M2
Universal) to optimise their current Bravia pre-Christmas promotion.
    "We are happy that Bravia is the first brand name to be advertised at
this spectacular location, one of the most busy intersections in downtown
Montreal. We are convinced that this spectacular ad will have a huge impact on
our televisions sales" said Patrick Lapointe, marketing director, ACL
televisions, for SONY Canada.
    Then, driving south on Park Avenue, at the corner Léo-Pariseau, you will
see Transat Tour's striking panoramic creative covering the entire building to

Square in New York, and offer an exceptional opportunity for major advertisers
to reach mass audiences in the downtown sector of major Canadian cities. Our
network coverage is an addition to major global markets such as Paris, Rome,
Shanghai, Los Angeles and San Francisco", adds Jean Claude Henri.
