Exactly two weeks after Ocean Outdoor started the Ocean SME Support Fund, Ocean has received more than 100 applications from various advertisers and trade associations!

Throughout the Netherlands, the campaigns can be seen on the billboards along the motorways and on the large-format digital screens in the cities. Every day, we receive applications from various advertisers who all have great campaigns and initiatives. The type of advertiser is very diverse. Every company or trade association has its own story and needs

Marlies Smits Head of Marketing Ocean Outdoor Nederland: “During this exceptional period, it’s so nice to be able to contribute in this way. The variety in the type of advertiser, the need they have and the message they want to share are often exciting. In cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Groningen there are many local catering entrepreneurs who would like to promote take-out and delivery menus; the screens in and around these cities are used for this. But there are also many brands that want to generate online sales; we try to offer these advertisers national coverage as much as possible. From today, the Food Bank will also start the #staysafeengeef campaign, which is widely supported by a number of large food producers, among others. For this, we use our screens around supermarkets, both in the cities, but also along the motorways. As a team, we also get a lot of energy from being able to be engaged in this. Our colleagues in the UK have now also started the same initiative this week!”
