Captivate Builds On Growth in Canada

New Screens Light Up Ottawa, More Functionality and Increased Reach for Advertisers

TORONTO, May 23, 2018 — Captivate, North America’s leading location-based digital video network, has officially expanded into the Ottawa market. The Canadian capital and 5th largest market allows Captivate to increase its footprint both nationally and internationally, rounding out coverage in over 30 top markets in North America.

“Captivate remains focused on both sides of our business – expanding our footprint within commercial real estate as well as creating new opportunities for advertisers,” said Barb Huggett, General Manager of Captivate Canada. “The addition of the Ottawa market brings us even deeper into North America as we work to strategically add top tier buildings throughout the continent and offer even more compelling features to tenants.”

Nouveau Functionality
Captivate will now offer a bilingual edition of content in Ottawa where screens will simultaneously run both English and French messaging on one screen. This execution is displayed across 40+ screens in the capital and is the first market within Captivate’s network to feature dual language simultaneously. Media and advertising partners have the option to expand their message while commercial real estate partners can enhance tenant experience and communication.

As the leading digital office media solution, Captivate’s growth is evidenced by partnerships with leading commercial real estate owners as well as relationships with the marketing and advertising industry at large. Always striving to bring tenants the best content, Captivate also partners with some of the biggest names in media, such as Canadian Press, CBC, The Wall Street Journal and The Weather Network, among others.

Expectations of office environments have evolved and buildings must adapt to retain tenants. Property owners and managers in Ottawa and beyond understand that key building amenities such as recreation spaces, fitness clubs and Captivate can set their portfolio apart from the competition.
