Advance for Growth is the exciting new competition for businesses to win free digital poster advertising space across Hounslow. Launched by Hounslow Council in partnership with JCDecaux UK and Hounslow Chamber of Commerce at a special West London business summit, the competition will equip one Hounslow business with the tools and expertise to substantially scale, and build a strong, recognisable brand.
The winning business will receive access to the Council’s and JCDecaux’s prestigious digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising estate across the borough throughout 2023. This includes the digital advertising sites such as Council bus shelters and digital billboards. Two runners up will also receive business support from the Council and a one-year free subscription to the Chamber of Commerce.
Councillor Shantanu Rajawat, Leader of Hounslow Council said:
“This is a remarkable opportunity for an aspiring Hounslow business to scale and reach new audiences. We continue to seek new ways to make the local economy and businesses stand out. Through our strong local partnerships, we are providing a platform for one lucky business to dramatically grow and thrive.
“Not only will the business have access to premium advertising space, which will be seen by residents and visitors across the borough, but they will receive tailored support to ensure they maximise the potential for their brand.”
Chris Collins, CO-CEO, JCDecaux UK said:
“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Hounslow Council and the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce on this really exciting competition. Out-of-Home plays an important part in the heart of communities, helping businesses prosper and grow. This is a brilliant opportunity for home-grown talent in Hounslow to take the next step and build their brand on Out-of-Home.”
