The Euro 2016 tournament is part of an exciting summer of sport ahead with the Olympic Games featuring later in the summer along with annual favourites such as the GAA Championships. For Out of Home advertising, it means a busy period ahead.
Commenting on the research Colum Harmon, marketing director at PML Group said ‘The fact that 80% of our sample expressed an opinion in the outcome of Euro 2016 shows the huge interest levels for it among the Dublin population. Summer is a strong period for our medium but this year we expect higher than usual demand as advertisers and sponsors leverage their association with the tournament via their advertising. It is already evident on the street and we envisage lots of activity around the Euros in the coming weeks.’
