The new marketing program at FLL creates a medium for advertisers to connect with visitors and grow regional commerce and includes the following:
- New Zeus screens at all terminals including arrivals and departures;
- Video walls;
- LCD screens at baggage claim areas for all terminals;
- Exterior column wraps at all terminals;

“With a booming economy driven by increased leisure travel and a rejuvenated downtown area attracting visitors and residents alike, the city of Fort Lauderdale offers a very compelling opportunity for brands to influence and win customers,” said Morten Gotterup, President, Clear Channel Airports. “We’re proud to partner with the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport for another five years to create one of a kind advertising experiences for their growing number of air travelers.”
In addition, a recent Nielsen study shows airport advertising offers consumers a great opportunity to absorb and respond to brand messaging. According to the study, frequent flyers are highly responsive to airport advertising, with 80% noticing the media and 42% taking action that includes visiting a website, going to a store or learning more about a product/brand/service. Nineteen percent of frequent flyers bought a product they saw advertised at the airport. Additionally, airport campaigns are a significant driver of foot traffic, with 84% of frequent fliers likely to visit a restaurant, 50% likely to visit a clothing/accessories/jewelry store and 41% likely to visit a consumer electronics store.
