“Since Stan’s launch, we have been a proud partner of QMS, with their robust portfolio of digital large format and street furniture inventory playing a pivotal role in the achievement of our marketing objectives.”
The City of Sydney covers 26 square kilometres, with 10 distinct precincts and 33 suburbs, and is home to high-income, educated and high-spending prospective customers.
In June 2020, QMS was appointed to an exclusive 10-year agreement, plus a further five-year option, to create a premium, reimagined network of street furniture for the City of Sydney.
The agreement will see a newly designed suite of bus shelters, kiosks, public toilets, seats and bins replace the current furniture, most of which has been in place since 1997.
QMS CEO John O’Neill: “We are working very closely with the City of Sydney on the rollout of the new network. While the ongoing pandemic has created some installation delays, we are pleased with how the rollout is progressing. It’s fantastic to see our partners’ advertising starting to appear on the network. The next few months will be an exciting time as the rollout continues and more people return to the City of Sydney to work and play.”
