Chief Customer Officer, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, Caroline Puechoultres, said: “Our partnership with Clear Channel France is an important part of our plan to create unique opportunities for brands looking to connect with the millions of people that visit our shopping centres every year. The combination of our digitally-connected network of Flagship destinations and unrivalled European audience of 550 million annual customer visits creates a unique and powerful out-of-home advertising offering. We will leverage it to reinforce our relationship with brands and media agencies and maximise new revenue streams.”

Chief Executive Officer, Clear Channel France, Boutaina Araki, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen once more by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield as their media partner. We aim to deliver together a compelling value proposition on the market to establish their unique shopping centres as a true 360° communication platform. Clear Channel France, with a weekly audience of 18 million shoppers reached through more than 2,000 screens over 200 malls, offers a powerful platform for brands to advertise in the biggest and busiest shopping venues in France.”
The partnership between URW and Clear Channel France started 20 years ago, and has transformed, innovated and expanded ever since, setting the benchmark for premium digital advertising in shopping malls.
