Captivate lobby and elevator media brings life to the workplace by delivering valuable content and entertainment from best-in-class providers to upscale professionals in premier office towers across the U.S. and Canada resulting in meaningful connections among viewers, brands and their buildings.

Our Story

The Captivate founders recognized the lengths people go to avoid eye contact and personal interaction during confined elevator rides and set out to develop a solution that would alleviate elevator awkwardness.

Fast forward 20 years and Captivate is an industry-leading digital media company engaging 10+ million professionals with compelling content and useful information from the world’s leading media providers via 12,000 lobby and elevator media screens in 1,800 premier office towers across North America.
