THEME CONCEPT

Books Alive

OOH ADVERTISING

The out of home experience gives the city a fresh look at the upcoming event. 

Bologna’s train station, known as Bologna Centrale, is one of the busiest in Italy, both for the number of passengers (about 58 million a year) and for the number of trains per day (about 800). Placing marketing for the conference in popular areas such as train station would be a strategic plan to open the door for newcomers.
