Branded Cities Network Unveiling the Much Anticipated Spectacular Digital Signage in Downtown Philadelphia at East Market

Philadelphia, PA. -- August 2016

Branded Cities Network (“BCN”) and National Real Estate Development announced today an exclusive representation agreement to sell digital advertising and integrated marketing campaigns on four LED displays at East Market, Philadelphia’s transformative mixed-use development. The signage, measuring over 5,000 square feet in total, will be displayed on two retail podiums facing Market Street. Expected to be deployed starting in early 2017, the signs will be marketed by BCN as the East Market Collection and will be sold as a synced network. Aside from being able to deliver video content, all four digital signs will be capable of advanced Out-of-Home programming, including triggered and dynamic creative, interactive programs and advanced media metrics.

“Delivering large format digital signage to downtown Philadelphia is a fantastic opportunity for both the city and BCN,” said Steve Ellman, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of BCN. “Philadelphia is a forward-thinking market and we will be able to deliver impactful and meaningful programs to its citizens. We are honored to add the East Market Collection to our portfolio of spectacular signage that is BCN’s hallmark.”
