Unparalleled Brand Exposure in NYC

With Times Square’s reputation as a bustling hub, the MLB faced the exciting challenge of captivating a diverse, dynamic audience. Our solution? A vibrant showcase on Times Square’s large digital display. By featuring a dynamic range of MLB team gear, the display wasn’t just an advertisement but an invitation to explore the richness of baseball’s legacy and latest merchandise.

Complementing the vivid visuals of Times Square, we strategically employed digital taxi tops and interior train car advertisements. These mediums provided essential store information — location, operational hours, and the array of products available — ensuring that the MLB Times Square Store reached many commuters, tourists, and city dwellers.
