Dynamic, digital out-of-home, multiple language campaign targets German travellers for Commerzbank

PSI, Posterscope’s international division, and Vizeum, have deployed a unique digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign in multiple international airports for Commerzbank using the Liveposter Platform.
The campaign, aimed at business travellers, appears at Paris CDG, New York’s JFK and London’s City and Heathrow airports and will run on DOOH screens throughout the airports and departure lounges for the next four weeks.
Activating flight departure data across key international airports, the campaign serves highly personalised messages to German travellers in their native language, outside of their homeland.
The campaign creative is presented in each country’s local language and flight departure data is used to trigger dynamic messaging in the German language, served to the appropriate screens and locations, as flights to Germany prepare to depart.
The DOOH campaign is being supported with an online display advertising campaign feature on the German language version of BA.com, also planned and bought by PSI and Vizeum
Margarita Christoforidou, Senior Account Manager, at PSI said: “The flight data now available to us means we can create and deliver even more highly targeted campaigns in airport locations.  This campaign for Commerzbank will not only reach the right people, at the right time, but will also show creative executions in their own language.  What could be more relevant and more engaging?”
Uwe Hellmann,  Head of Brand Management and Corporate Marketing,  at  Commerzbank, added: “We were looking for an exciting and dynamic campaign to promote our corporate client campaign  to travellers heading to Germany from key international locations across the world.  The ability to reach these travellers as they prepare to depart from the airport and speak to them in their own language is highly innovative and we are excited to see the results.”

Burger King in Russia launches temperature-activated OOH campaign

Posterscope Russia and Vizeum launched an innovation OOH campaign for fast food client Burger King. At the heart of the campaign was the insight that food consumption depends on weather conditions: when it’s cold there is a preference for hot and hearty food but in the heat…cool and easy fare was desired.
Traditionally outdoor advertising does not allow for quick adaption of copy so the project team at Posterscope looked to provide a technical solution.  The campaign in Moscow involved 43 digital screens, located in proximity to Burger King Restaurants, fitted with innovative technology which allowed for weather-activated advertising.    When the temperature reached over 25 degrees the screens broadcast milkshake creative, when the temperature was low, images of hot food was served.
“It is a new format in the capital’s outdoor advertising landscape. Ultimately, the use of technology increases the efficiency of the advertising campaign: the consumer is delivered the message that really meets their needs here and now “, – said Mikhail Nesterov, head of the planning advertising media Vizeum.

Transformers Take Over Moscow

The campaign also included billboards, special projections on TNT and branding of metro stations in St.Petersburg.

Internet of Things Brings Opportunities for Brands

The media landscape has just got used to owned, earned and paid media, but is it now time to get used to non-media turning into media too?
The Internet of Things, where everyday objects and devices communicate with each other, could transform our toasters, cars and thermostats into ad opportunities.
When Google predicted a world where ads appear on “refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses and watches” in a letter to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, many media ears pricked up.
Already, devices such as Google’s Nest and British Gas’ Hive thermostats and Philips’ Hue light bulbs are controlled by mobile apps. The next stage of the Internet of Things would be to create a protocol allowing the devices to interact with each other.
How wide-ranging this will be is open to debate, but the direction of travel is set. If objects can collect data about how their owners use them, this will produce invaluable insights into people’s behaviour for marketers. Brands could put ads on those objects or use insights from the data to post personalised ads on smartphones, TVs or tablets.
Andy Hobsbawm, the founder and chief marketing officer of Evrythng, believes the Internet of Things offers a “tremendous media opportunity”. He notes that, as objects become networked, interactive and trackable, they will inevitably become media with “digital interfaces” for personalised content, services and experiences.
He adds: “As with any media, there’s also a challenge in extracting new intelligence from the data generated by billions of these objects coming online. Without a common standard, the opportunities could be limited.”
Some fear this could lead to a dystopian future of spam ads that misinterpret data and serve up irrelevant and inappropriate advertising.
As Dan Kirby, the chief executive of Techdept, says: “The data created by your ‘things’ communicating means amazing insights into consumer needs. This gives marketers a great deal of power, but power that has to be used responsibly. The opportunity for tone-deaf ads – imagine your house burns down, and up pops a message: ‘It seems you need a new sofa!’ – means it could undermine as well as empower a brand.”
There is no doubt that the data from smart devices could offer a huge source of insight for companies, governments and agencies alike. According to Chrissy Totty, the head of innovation at Vizeum, the increased understanding about individuals’ movements and behaviour will enable “hyper-local, hyper-relevant” messages. However, this requires data to be shared between organisations, in partnerships such as the one recently struck between Posterscope and EE.
“Without sharing, the data will be proprietary to those who have created the devices and the opportunities will remain limited,” Totty says.
“The more invisible the Internet of Things becomes, the less aware consumers will be about the amount of data they are generating and who has access to this.
“Agencies, media owners and brands all need to stay on the right side of the ‘creepy line’, to quote Eric Schmidt – respecting our traditional value exchange with the consumer. Advertising, however smartly targeted, will still need to add value to the consumer and be something they knowingly opt into.”

The new work by celebrated artist Antony Gormley, made especially for this project, will be a wonderful legacy – and a way of thanking the art loving public, who made the whole initiative possible.”

BMW has taken over all six Cromwell Road advertising panels for their stunning out-of-home advertising campaign. An elevated ramp has been built to create the illusion of the replica i8 driving along a road, bringing the advert to life. The campaign was planned and booked by Vizeum and Posterscope.
Nicola Green, BMW’s Marketing Communications Manager – Brand and New Model Launches, said: “The i8 is a car which stands out – its design, innovation and performance.

Stella Artois Whisks People off to Wimbledon in Waterloo Station Experiential Campaign

Stella Artois, official sponsor of Wimbledon 2014, has launched an OOH campaign that utilises traditional and the latest OOH innovations, to build on their association.
A national 48 and 96 sheet campaign, proximity one off banners, and 6 sheets on the way to the event, will all drive mass coverage of the sponsorship. The highlight of the OOH campaign is the use of JCDecaux’s Motion@Waterloo screen, where Posterscope and JCDecaux have developed 5 templates which bring in social from Instagram and Twitter, real-time copy updates from Wimbledon, as well showcasing branded Stella Artois content.
The screen, which is scheduled to deliver what consumers want, when they want it, fuses connected commuter insight with timetable data, thus making every ad shown relevant to how consumers are thinking and feeling in the station.
On days 5 and 6 there was an exciting twist, where Stella Artois gave away Wimbledon tickets through a centre court experience, delivered by psLIVE and JCDecauxLive.
The campaign was planned and bought by Posterscope and Vizeum with media and production delivered by JCDecaux.
This campaign is another example of Stella Artois pushing the boundaries of digital technology to deliver relevant communications.
