CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clear Channel Airports (CCA), a brand division of Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA) (NYSE:CCO), and a subsidiary of iHeartMedia Inc., today announced it has signed a new five-year partnership with an additional five-year option with the Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) to provide state of the art advertising solutions. The latest advertising network will allow brands to reach over 675,000 annual passengers traveling to the Coastal Bend region of Texas, where tourism generates an annual economic impact of $1 billion. Installation of the new advertising network will be completed by July 28, 2017.
CCA has been the incumbent concessionaire for CCIA since 2002. With the renewed partnership, CCA will install a dynamic program to improve the passenger experience while providing advertisers valuable coverage. Not only is Corpus Christi a popular tourist destination with its attractive beaches, marinas and museums, it’s a center for petrochemical manufacturing, large-scale fabrication, marine research and maritime shipping, making it an appealing city for national and local brands looking to reach business and leisure travelers.
The new advertising network at CCIA will blend with the modern design and coastal flavor that’s unique to the city of Corpus Christi. The new elements include:
- A new iconic 60 square foot LED video wall;
- Arrivals LCD network in baggage claim;
- Environmentally-conscious, energy-efficient Tension Fabric Displays (TFDs); and
- Locally themed elements to tie new media assets into the look and feel of the airport terminal.
