New York, NY– Diriyah is the inaugural launch partner for The United, a super-premium transatlantic DOOH broadcast network developed by Branded Cities and Ocean Outdoor.

This first of its kind international showcase tells the story of Diriyah, The City of Earth, marking the historic destination’s transformation into one of the world’s foremost tourism experiences.

A limited opportunity due to the highly demanded nature of the sites, The United includes Los Angeles’ The Moxy, the Nasdaq Tower and Midtown Financial in New York’s Times Square and London’s Piccadilly Lights.

Breaking for seven days from November 27, the OOH work includes a 30-minute, simultaneous domination (on November 28), timed to play out at 1.30pm in LA, 4.30pm in New York and 9.30pm GMT in London.

Working with media partners in outdoor and publishing, chosen for their ability to push boundaries and break new ground through media firsts and best in class activations, the creative taps into Diriyah’s unique mix of grace, subtlety, quality and charm.

Kiran Jay Haslam, chief marketing officer of Diriyah Company, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with our partners, Ocean and Branded Cities, to bring Diriyah to life globally, introducing ‘The City of Earth’ to an entirely new audience and building our community across the world.”

Denise Levine, chief revenue officer of Branded Cities, added: “The United will provide brands such as Diriyah unparalleled reach on a global scale while delivering a memorable and one-of-a-kind experience for audiences.”

The United was developed as a collaboration between Ocean and Branded Cities to showcase latest DOOH technologies and immersive formats like and Dreamroom 3D and Deepscreen®. It includes a range of social amplification tools to drive the combined estimated 17.3 million impacts, reaching a global digital audience with a proven extended audience of tens of millions on social media, a phenomenon that has seen DOOH become a central element for brands digitally and via popular social sharing channels.
