APN Outdoor, Australia and New Zealand’s leading outdoor media provider has this week announced a strategic partnership with social media powerhouse, Twitter Australia.
The initial phase of this partnership coincides with the Australian Open beginning this week and has several elements including live feeds, instantaneous score and news updates, and a consumer promotion giving tennis fans the opportunity to be sitting courtside at the finals.
Using the unique hashtag #ausopenmoments, promoted through APN Outdoor’s expansive network of Elite Screens, tennis fans are invited to contribute to the conversation that will be subsequently broadcast through the same network, being updated in real time with the newest and most relevant Tweets.
David Ray, Head of Growth at Twitter Australia’s, commented:
“Tennis is one of the biggest sports on Twitter with thousands of conversations taking place every day about matches all around the world. @AustralianOpen produces top draw content, with amazing access to the players and commentators, fun and personality that Twitter brings to a huge local and global audience.
“We already know that Tweets don’t just live on Twitter; they can be seen just about everywhere. This partnership is a fantastic opportunity to share the reach of Australian Open Twitter content to APN Outdoor’s audience in a unique way and we are looking forward to seeing #AusOpen Tweets travel even further to help increase conversation around this great Australian event.”
As the tournament continues over the next two weeks, the partnership between Twitter and APN Outdoor will also heat up with consumers who have been actively using #ausopenmoments going into the running to win tennis tickets for the finals.
