Clear Channel Outdoor's New Digital Billboard Provides Local Businesses a
Dynamic Way to Reach Millions of Seattle Consumers
State-of-the Art Digital Advertising Technology Benefits Seattle Area
Advertisers and the City of Tukwila
SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2013
SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Clear Channel Outdoor Seattle/Tacoma
today announced the launch of its new digital billboard in the City of
Tukwila. This new digital sign provides Seattle area advertisers with a
dynamic channel to reach over 110,000 residents and visitors to the Seattle
area each week.
The newest digital billboard in the Seattle marketplace is located on the
northeast corner of the West Valley Highway and SW 43^rdStreet intersection,
at the entrance to Southcenter Westfield Mall. The billboard is located in the
region's largest shopping district and the epicenter of its retail activity in
the south Seattle suburbs.
"Clear Channel Outdoor is committed to enabling Seattle area businesses to
more easily connect their brands, products and services with customers," said
Pam Guinn, Clear Channel Outdoor's Seattle/Tacoma President. "The new digital
billboard at Southcenter is an excellent example of how we worked with the
City of Tukwila to utilize city land in a way to help local business and the
city communicate critical information to the people of Seattle."
The power of this digital sign is being leveraged this week alone by Seattle
businesses including Wally Park, Korum Automotive, Valley Medical and Fiat of
Seattle/Southcenter. The flexibility of digital billboard design allows for
the easy adjustment of creative and messaging, allowing businesses the ability
to nimbly adapt their campaigns to consumer needs and marketplace
developments. This unique capability is unique in advertising and enables
businesses to announce new products offerings and promote limited-time
specials in real time.
The advent of the new digital sign is due in part to a public/private
partnership with the City of Tukwila. As a result of this agreement, the city
will be able to use the new digital sign to post community messages and public
safety alerts as needed. These messages can help the community during serious
weather situations or disasters such as an earthquake, as well as support law
enforcement through Amber Alerts or FBI Wanted messages. In addition, the
digital sign is located on city-owned property, which means the City of
Tukwila will receive revenue for use of this land by Clear Channel Outdoor.
