LG, Destination Media Fuel Partnership

Destination Media, the digital out-of-home marketing provider and parent of Gas Station TV, and LG Electronics, a provider in digital signage displays, have announced plans for a long-term strategic technology and marketing alliance.

For advertisers, the collaboration will leverage LG's screen technology and Destination Media's proven non-traditional marketing strategies. Offering media networks one of the industry's most comprehensive selections of flat-panel displays and related distribution technology, LG Electronics will be the exclusive screen provider for a number of Destination Media's extensive out-of-home marketing networks. LG also plans to advertise on various Destination Media digital out-of-home TV Networks.

"With their strong industry position and outstanding results for advertisers, Destination Media is one of the premier drivers of digital out-of-home media," said Ron Snaidauf, vice president of Commercial Products, LG Electronics USA, Inc. "Unlike other digital out-of-home networks, Destination Media has proven the ability to scale quickly, efficiently and effectively, as demonstrated by their Gas Station TV network, the dominant leader in its space."

Destination Media provides advertisers with direct access to consumers where they live, work, and play through a comprehensive mix of lifestyle destinations in the digital out-of-home space that include Gas Station TV's Gas and Convenience Store Networks. As advertisers increasingly look for effective ways to augment existing marketing strategies and add actionable value to the consumer experience beyond traditional advertising, Destination Media continues to provide creative and engaging out-of-home environments to market their brands.

"LG's superior, consumer-tailored expertise in communications and screen technology, further enhances Destination Media's ability to provide advertisers with the quality, engaging medium they are seeking to reach their target audiences," said David Leider, CEO of Destination Media. "Digital out-of-home advertising is anticipated to grow to a multi-billion dollar industry by the end of the year. LG's decision to join forces with Destination Media both as a screen provider and as an advertiser on our networks recognizes the need to enhance the medium and to provide advertisers the ultimate channel to reach consumers at the many destinations in their lives."
