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.

Newad Will Set Up Advertising Boards at McGill University and Becomes the First Media Partner at Brock University

Newad’s indoor advertising Campus network has confirmed its position as the Canadian leader with educational establishments following the signing of a partnership with McGill University (Montreal, QC), considered one of the best educational institutions in North America. Another Newad initiative will mark the first time publicity has been allowed within the confines of Brock University (St. Catharines, ON).

Starting in September 2013, Newad will expand and manage the indoor advertising space throughout the campus in all faculties. These boards will give advertisers a unique opportunity to engage the McGill student population in a captive environment. Newad is the only organization to provide this coverage to reach, better than anyone else, the very active and trendy McGill student population.

“We are especially proud of this partnership with McGill which enhances the offer we make to advertisers who want to stand out,” says Philippe Marchessault, Executive Vice-President of Operations, Development and Innovation at Newad. “Our teams favour creative publicity that respects students and their educational institutions. I think these are qualities that our partners discerned in our service proposals. We were selected because of our solid track record, our approach and our familiarity with the educational environment.”

“In this same spirit, our know-how and expertise won over Brock University on the appropriateness of our plan and the benefits of having publicity in their institution for the first time,” concluded Mr. Marchessault.

In the fall of 2012 Newad announced the renewal of a series of agreements and numerous new signings with educational institutions across the country. With the addition of McGill and Brock universities, Newad now has a place in 150 buildings spread throughout 60 colleges and universities across Canada. Newad’s Campus Network will now generate 14,300,000 impressions each week.
