Convenience Advertising (CA) was born in May 1984 to narrowcast messages to people at risk of HIV/AIDS via the A4 static sign format in bathrooms at key dwell points, which include; cubicle, urinal, hand-dryer and entry-exit locations.

CA now advertises over 8,000 health messages addressing depression, anxiety, cancer, psychostimulant use, sexual health, responsible gambling…

Captivision is a world-first Digital Out of Home advertising platform offering real-time audience data, via custom IR counter technology and algorithm.

This digital screen is positioned above hand-dryers and in entry/exit points, in premium and high-traffic airports (Sydney Domestic and International terminal) and retail shopping
