Press

We like to share the good news. Big time. We thus felt it important to devote a small section of the site to all those delightful press releases full of five-syllable words. And given that we openly share all that’s going on, that sort of gives you the right to snoop around.

Strengthening of Indoor network in educational institutions; Newad asserts its leadership in Ontario’s college and university campuses

Newad reinforces its leadership position in reaching Canadian students with today’s announcement of the renewal of a number of long-term agreements that strengthen its presence in Ontario’s colleges and universities.

Recently, Seneca, Mohawk and Western Ontario chose Newad among many other advertising companies looking to knock off its company model. “Newad was chosen because of its solid track record, its trustworthy approach and the respect our teams have for educational environments. We understand their reality and our role consists of working in collaboration with the school’s management teams and propose quality campaigns,” comments Philippe Marchessault, Executive Vice President, Operations, Development & Innovation, Indoor Advertising.

Since the start of the school year, Newad’s Campus network has generated more than 28 million impressions monthly in Ontario establishments. “Advertisers now have access to 1,800 advertising faces, available in three formats, spread out over a network of 65 buildings belonging to 16 of the province’s colleges and universities. Unlike our competitors, who are poorly represented outside of sports centres and student centres, our network reaches the majority of students,” remarks Philippe Marchessault, Newad’s Executive Vice-President of Operations, Development and Innovation.

“That’s excellent news for the team at Newad as well as for Ontario’s advertising industry, which is always looking for new solutions to reach this highly active and mobile consumer group. In Ontario, Newad’s Campus network reaches 710,000 people, in other words more than 660,000 students and over 50,000 professors and employees. More great news for advertisers: these young adults are aware of consumer trends and contribute to their adoption by other people,” notes Lino Ricco, Vice-President and Regional General Manager – Central Canada.

The schools that make up Newad’s Campus network in Ontario include the following universities: York, Queen’s, Western Ontario, Guelph, McMaster, Brock and Ryerson Polytechnic. Newad is also present in the following Ontario colleges: Seneca, Centennial, Humber, Mohawk, Algonquin, Sheridan, Durham and Niagara.
