If you are interested in attending, please visit the website for more information.\r\nThe conference was originally scheduled to be held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, but the venue and dates have been changed to Egypt due to logistical reasons.\r\nThe OOH campaign announced the dates and the sponsors using the digital solution that matches the campaign’s objective, which is mainly awareness. Moreover, choosing the digital solution is a right decision for several reasons, i.e., high visibility, as digital outdoor screens are highly visible, they can be placed in high-traffic areas where people are likely to see them. This is important for a pivotal exhibition like IATF, as it needs to reach a large number of people in order to be successful.Scalability also is another reason to use digital outdoor screens, as they can be scaled to fit the needs of the campaign. This means the campaign can be tailored to reach a specific audience or target a specific location.The third reason is the engaging content; digital outdoor screens can display engaging content, such as videos, animations, and interactive graphics. This can capture the attention of passersby and keep them engaged with the campaign.\r\nThe campaign’s artwork suited the African theme as the used colors are the famous warm to represent the African culture. Placed on a white background to strengthen the artwork and the copy.\r\n\r\nThe copy is strong and straight to the point, as you can spot two call-to-actions: the first one is “Join the biggest commercial and investment event in Africa,” and the second one is placed in the middle, “Showcase Now” in red with a big font that’s hard to miss for the pedestrians and passersby. The screen is annexed with the location and the expo’s date, along with the website. \r\nThe campaign's geo-distribution is strategic, as it focuses on targeting busy areas in Cairo. The campaign aims to maximize its reach and exposure to a larger audience by identifying and selecting these high-traffic locations. This approach allows the campaign to effectively deploy its message to a concentrated population, increasing the likelihood of engagement and generating desired outcomes. Additionally, by targeting busy areas, the campaign can take advantage of the higher footfall and visibility, potentially leading to increased brand awareness and customer acquisition.\r\n\r\nADThe Egypt High-Level Business Promotional Event for Intra-African Trade Fair 2023 brought together leaders from different industries, government officials, and members of the diplomatic community to discuss how the African Intra-African Trade Fair can promote trade and investment opportunities between Egypt and the rest of Africa under the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA).
