Spotlight Outdoor Ads, an enterprising leader in the outdoor advertising and out-of-home (OOH) advertising industries, announced a partnership with North America’s largest licensed sports retailer, LIDS to showcase the first and only digital screen to consistently and actively play 3D content on the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Eye-catching ads for the world-famous Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group shows mark the debut of what’s being dubbed, “The Digital Spectacular.”
Spotlight Outdoor Ads and LIDS have entered a five-year exclusive partnership to showcase a variety of brands on the Digital Spectacular at the LIDS store prominently located on 3791 South Las Vegas Boulevard. As the first client to advertise on the Digital Spectacular 3D billboard on the Strip, Cirque du Soleil has the benefit of utilizing the massive screen (measuring 90-feet long and 68-feet high on one side of the building, 62-feet high on the other), a rare Digital Out of Home (DOOH) layout to leverage 3D and forced perspective designs, a total of 10 spots on the rotation with 511,623 impressions per week per spot, and striking 3D graphics to tout its renown shows.
“We’re thrilled to partner with LIDS on this one-of-a-kind digital asset on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Jeremie Watkins, president, Spotlight Outdoor Ads. “The sheer size, revolutionary 3D graphics, and location make the content stand out from the hustle and bustle on the Las Vegas Strip. Not only is the proximity to T-Mobile Arena and Allegiant Stadium attractive to brands looking to break through on the Strip, but the creative opportunities are endless – we can’t wait to see other high-profile brands take advantage of the Digital Spectacular, a truly unique advertising experience.”
LIDS offers officially licensed and branded headwear and apparel for collegiate sports teams, major professional sports teams, as well as fashion-oriented gear in the latest styles and colors. LIDS has multiple locations on the Las Vegas Strip, as well as throughout the greater Las Vegas area.
“We’re excited to partner with Spotlight Outdoor Ads in presenting the Digital Spectacular to the Las Vegas Strip,” said Michael Curmi, Vice President of Marketing for LIDS. “We look forward to working with additional upscale brands interested in telling their visually compelling story on one of the best digital advertising locations in the country. It’s hard to imagine a better location for anyone looking to get their message out to the Las Vegas community.”
