Let’s face it, there are many ways for people to avoid advertising these days. Between fast-forwarding through commercials, paying extra to omit advertisements and only having to watch 4 seconds of your advertisement before the viewer can go on with watching the video they were searching for…it’s become harder and harder to get your message in front of the right audience and actually grab their attention.
Out-of-Home (or outdoor as some know it) media is one option you can’t fast forward through and there are so many ways to utilize this medium.
AAF is proud to present a program that helps open your eyes to all things out-of-home. What’s offered? What can you really do to take advantage of the different technologies that are available to you and how have other companies utilized this medium well?
Members from different media and advertising firms in Jacksonville will be joining us to open your eyes to all the possibilities out-of-home can offer you and/or your clients.
Join us as we learn from some of the best around town! This program is FREE for current AAF Jacksonville members—future members are welcome to attend for a small fee!
Make sure to arrive early to park and place your food order*!
*Lunch not included with ticket. Food will be available for purchase at Sun Ray Cinema.
