He said: “Partnering with APN Outdoor reinforces our strategy to align with market leaders to deliver an immersive experience for the more than 43 million passengers who travel through Sydney Airport each year. The advertising category continues to be a growth opportunity for Sydney Airport and we’re focused on leveraging technology and data to connect with our customers in a more engaging way. This agreement includes digitisation of existing assets and upgrading end of life signage, as well as new signage throughout the airport precinct. Sydney Airport will leverage APN’s innovative philosophy to rationalise, standardise and digitise signage across three terminals.”

APN Outdoor CEO and Managing Director James Warburton said: “We’ve enjoyed a long-standing and positive relationship with Sydney Airport, so we’re really pleased to continue building on that partnership and to further evolve the needs of the business. Sydney Airport represents one of the most significant advertising contracts in Australia and the opportunity to improve engagement across the airport is an exciting proposition that we embrace wholeheartedly.”
