PATTISON Outdoor Advertising makes major moves in Montreal by partnering with Devimco Immobilier and La Presse
PATTISON Outdoor Advertising is proud to expand its Digital Residential Elevator Network in Montreal through new partnerships with Devimco Immobilier and La Presse. This expansion will include Montreal’s tallest residential project, the Maestria Condominiums.
MONTREAL, QC, JUNE 23, 2020 – PATTISON Outdoor Advertising, Canada’s largest Out-of-Home provider, is proud to announce it has partnered with Quebec-based real estate developer, Devimco Immobilier, and French-language digital news editor, La Presse. These strategic partnerships add to the company’s growing presence in the region with the recent win to operate advertising across the Réseau express métropolitain (REM).
PATTISON Outdoor will be the digital signage provider for Devimco Immobilier. A digital rollout of 68 elevator screens is scheduled for installation in 20 newly erected residential properties, with two upcoming office towers in the Greater Montreal area. The partnership will also see PATTISON’s world-class digital displays featured in future development projects for the real estate firm. The upcoming projects will include the Maestria Condominiums, Montreal’s tallest residential project and the Solar Uniquartier in Brossard, the largest mixed-use real estate project in Quebec.
“We’re excited to partner with PATTISON, Canada’s leading out-of-home advertising company, to provide the best experience in all our residential towers by bringing added value with an effective means of communication. Modern technology has paved the way for multi-functional devices that make our lives easier, faster, better, and more fun. This dynamic digital display will allow our residents and tenants to catch up on news, traffic, local weather, and offer around-the-clock building-specific information such as package deliveries and resident notifications.” Says Marco Fontaine, Vice-President development, sales and marketing at Devimco Immobilier.
PATTISON Outdoor is also proud to showcase premium French content for audiences with La Presse’s digital news service through the expansion of its digital elevator screen portfolio in the province. With up-to-the-minute news and updates, the displays will provide industry-standard content that is contextual and relevant to those exposed to the screens throughout the day.
These new partnerships add to PATTISON’s growing leadership position across the region with the recent win of the REM, Montreal’s highly-anticipated light metro rapid transit system which will see its first trains running in 2021. The public transport project provides vital access across Greater Montreal by linking the growing South Shore, North Shore, the West Island and the Airport to Downtown Montreal through 26 stations across 67 km of track.
“The growth of our Digital Elevator Network provides a premium amenity and communication tool for Commercial and Residential properties across the province. With the arrival of the Réseau express métropolitain in 2021, PATTISON truly offers advertisers access to the customer journey, with the ability to reach Montrealer’s at key touchpoints throughout their day,” says Dominic Loporcaro, Vice President, Eastern Region, PATTISON Outdoor. “We are very pleased to announce these major partnerships which expand PATTISON Outdoor’s offerings across Montreal at a time when the region is seeing rapid development, and to be apart of Montreal’s future in a big way.”
