Lamar Transit Advertising and Shaw Communications Launch Vancouver’s First Wi-Fi Enhanced SeaBus Terminal Domination Ad Campaign

Baton Rouge, LA – May 3, 2016 – SeaBus commuters in Vancouver, BC can now enjoy free Wi-Fi connectivity in the Waterfront and Lonsdale Quay terminals, as part of a new marketing campaign from Shaw Communications and Lamar Advertising Company (Nasdaq: LAMR). Lamar Advertising of British Columbia is pleased to announce the launch of Vancouver’s first-ever Wi-Fi enhanced SeaBus terminal domination advertising campaign for the Shaw WiFi Go brand.

“The Wi-Fi enhanced SeaBus terminal dominations are a groundbreaking transit advertising initiative in British Columbia,” said Byron Montgomery, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Lamar Advertising. “The Shaw WiFi Go campaign is an excellent example of how out-of-home advertising complements mobile and wireless technology to deliver meaningful advertisements that provide utility to consumers. We value our partnership with Shaw Communications and TransLink, and we are excited to combine the power of OOH and technology to help the brand connect with consumers.”

SeaBus riders can enjoy free Wi-Fi connectivity while waiting in the terminals, courtesy of Shaw WiFi Go and TransLink. To promote Shaw WiFi Go, Lamar saturated the SeaBus terminals with posters, turnstile wraps and floor graphics. The branding carries onto the SeaBus ferries with seat decals and on board vertical posters, making them highly visible and easily identifiable. A Shaw WiFi Go splash page greets commuters who connect to the WiFi on their mobile device, continuing the conversation from out-of-home to mobile.

Shaw WiFi Go brand is featured on passenger ferries and throughout the terminals, inviting consumers to enjoy free Wi-Fi while in the Seabus terminals. In the coming months, Shaw’s free WiFi Go access will be expanded into the ferries themselves at which point passengers will be able to surf while they sail across the Burrard Inlet.

“We were delighted to launch this innovative marketing concept with Shaw Communications and TransLink, and we look forward to expanding our ‘WiFi Enhance’ marketing opportunities in Vancouver this spring,” said Montgomery.

The campaign started at the beginning of March and is an on-going initiative. For more information, please visit
