Additionally, the digital network is equipped with dynamic capabilities designed to draw attention and engage audiences. Advertisers will be able to bring their brand to life with capabilities including day parting, user-generated content, weather triggered advertising, social media, live scores, countdowns, trends, and board dominations.

Further to this, Adam Butterworth, President of Branded Cities Canada adds, “We are delighted to be partnered with Signpatico.
