Three billboards went live on May 1st and 29th respectively, and will be on display throughout the month of June, coinciding with the high summer travel season. This particular deployment is set in three key locations: 7th Avenue & 48th Street, 5 Times Square & 41st Street and 727 Seventh Avenue between 48th & 49th Street.
"Working with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism to bring the gorgeous Wonderful Indonesia campaign to life in Times Square has been an exciting experience for the team at OUTFRONT Media," said Jodi Senese, OUTFRONT Media's Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Times Square is a special location, allowing brands to share their story in the most vibrant advertising environment globally, and to also reach the more than 300,000 people who visit Times Square daily."
"In order to continue to promote Indonesia, it is important to have a strong brand to build up our reputation to advertise and sell our destination," said Arief Yahya, Minister of Tourism for the Republic of Indonesia.
