6 Nations viewers found the right pub at the right time with a little help from Guinness

For this year’s RBS 6 Nations, Guinness ran a locally targeted, dynamic Out-of-Home campaign that celebrated the brand’s status as the official beer of the tournament.
Devised by Carat and Posterscope and deployed on JCDecaux’s LDN network, the campaign sought to capture the attention of Guinness fans and direct to them to pubs nearby where they could watch England battle to claim the Grand Slam whilst enjoying a pint of the much loved pub favourite.
The campaign’s dynamic creative element was automatically ad-served as a match approached to provide kick off times and distance to nearby pubs screening the live match (run through Liveposter).  A network of sensors fitted in participating pubs captured footfall data and, based on capacity levels, triggered real-time, tailored creative executions to cleverly drive fans to the best venues to watch the game.
Elliot Duncan, Guinness Marketing Manager Europe, said: “Guinness is a beer Made of More so we wanted an OOH campaign for the RBS 6 Nations that would embody this and provide more relevant content for our fans and pub partners. This campaign gave audiences upcoming match information and also let’s passers-by know where there was an available seat nearby to catch the game accompanied by a pint of the official beer of the tournament.”
Alexandra Porritt, Client Manager at Posterscope said: “This campaign used location-marketing expertise to programmatically ad-serve relevant creative to audiences: using footfall data, location and geo-targeting, and dynamic creative to provide useful information to fans, in an engaging way, at the right time and in the right place.”

JCDecaux celebrates 500th digital screen along the TfL bus network

This week, Jean-François Decaux, Co-Chief Executive Officer, JCDecaux and Graeme Craig, Commercial Development Director, Transport for London (TfL), celebrated the 500th digital screen installation on the prestigious TfL bus shelter network.
Jean-François Decaux, Co-Chief Executive Officer, told us “London is a global hub and we take great pride in the strength of our digital proposition. We are at the forefront of the digital transformation in Out-of-Home advertising in one of the most powerful and influential cities in the world. The partnership with TfL has been essential to achieving our vision of a global digital showcase.”
The digital transformation of TfL’s bus shelter network is a core element of JCDecaux’s vision to make London the global showcase for digital Out-of-Home. A key part of the roll-out was the total digitisation of Oxford Street, with its digital screens synchronised last year to dramatically increase the impact and noticeability of the Oxford Street network. The Luxury network extends across the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Kings Road, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park Corner, High Street Kensington and Park Lane.
Graeme Craig, Commercial Development Director, Transport for London said, “I am delighted to celebrate the 500th digital screen on our bus shelter network. Even at the half-way point, this is already the largest digital rollout in the world, reflecting our shared confidence in London and its bus network. Working closely together we are transforming London and the industry, generating vital commercial revenue for us to reinvest in transport.”
This new channel of communication for London has increased the vibrancy of bus shelter advertising to the benefit of both advertisers and passengers with new dynamic capabilities and increased screen quality. A new data centric strategy has been enabled through JCDecaux’s SmartBrics planning platform and its Smart Content management system driving a new era of contextual, topical and socially integrated campaigns across London.
