King Khan, towering stature, motorised innovation, building impact & drama on this premium display NEW DELHI: The riveting FIFA World Cup which has just entered the 'final' stage has been a huge advertising proposition for key brands globally. In India, leading brands like Dish TV have leveraged the high consumer interest level in the super sport to position their own products and services during the course of the month-long event. Dish TV launched a multi media campaign to promote its new set-top box for high-definition TV (HDTV) sets. In this, outdoor campaign is a key facet, which has been executed with great finesse by leading OOH firm Milestone Brandcom.

Innovative formats never fail to deliverThe outdoor campaign, spread over 15 days, is targeted at high-end consumers in major cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Ludhiana, Lucknow, Patna, Indore and Surat.

Intelligent & efficient use of multiple media formatsMilestone Brandcom has used both large and small formats to aggressively position the brand. Large billboards, unipoles, BRT - shelters, DBQS, signages, gantries and wall-wraps (in cities like Chennai). Besides, OOH screens across different networks and Croma Stores were pressed into service.

Premium, large format displays building campaign impactThe campaign created a major attraction on the DND Flyway -- that connects Delhi and Noida - with an innovative billboard display that shows Shah Rukh Khan striking a 'rotating' football. The football cut-out was 'motorised' to rotate, bringing alive the display.
