Asiaray Media Group Limited (“Asiaray” or the “Group;” HKSE: 1993), a leading out-of-home media company with a strategic focus on airport and metro line advertising, has been appointed as the exclusive advertising agency of 2016 FIA Formula E HKT Hong Kong ePrix in Central Harbourfront, Hong Kong (“Hong Kong ePrix”) following a competitive tender. Hong Kong ePrix is the first international auto racing championship to be held in Hong Kong on 8 and 9 October 2016.
The inaugural Hong Kong ePrix will be part of the third season of the FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully-electric racing series and ground-breaking innovation in sport and entertainment. As the first-ever international auto racing tournament in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong ePrix is set against the iconic skyline of the Central Harbourfront.
Apart from the LED walls and trackside banners at the racing venue, the key locations where media from around the world will be capturing images, Asiaray will also be managing the advertising spaces of the public areas including the spectator fences, the Man Yiu Street footbridge connecting Central Ferry Pier and International Finance Center, and Central Terminal Building (Pier 7 & 8). Corporate packages of Emotion Club and Grandstand as well as e-Village Activation Area will also be offered via Asiaray to help advertisers in brand building and customer engagement with their VIPs and upscale clients. The debut of the Formula E event in Hong Kong is expected to not only attract the local fans and tourists, but also widespread media attention.
Mr. Vincent Lam, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Asiaray, said, “We are honored to be appointed as the exclusive advertising agency of this all-electric racing championship. The winning of the Hong Kong ePrix tender acknowledges our outdoor advertising capability which is matched with international standards. We look forward to partnering with the organizer in delivering advertising solutions which attract visitors from all over the world to this ground-breaking motorsports event, enabling our advertisers to build their brand and engage with their customers in such an exciting environment.
