Making Brands Famous.

Spectacular advertising is an iconic Out-of-Home medium that can make a powerful statement when done right. Strong creative in the right locations can captivate onlookers, spark social conversation, and earn brands millions of impressions. Branded Cities’ Spectaculars are strategically located along major arterial roadways to and from the downtown core – The Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Blvd in Toronto, the Metropolitaine in Montreal, and landmark locations in Yonge-Dundas Square. In commuter cities like Toronto, where the average daily commute exceeds 60 minutes, Spectaculars represent a major opportunity for advertisers to connect with valuable audiences on a daily basis.
