Since Chinatown is the highlight of this festive season, advertising there will be very effective. The traditional decorations that liven up the streets are guaranteed to captivate the eyes of many people and excite the audience around the location, including directing their attention to the advertising displays that are there.

Chinatown will still have huge attention even though there are not as many people present at the location as before the pandemic. Since this event also takes place virtually on social media as well as being covered by news media, the opportunity for advertisers’ messages remain large to reach many audiences through their gadget screens from home.
Know your audience
It’s important to know your audience before placing an ad. To advertise the special Mid Autumn Festival in Singapore, the demographic that is prioritized is the Chinese community who respects tradition, likes mooncakes, lanterns, and all knick-knacks related to the Mid Autumn Festival.

Creative advertising campaigns and displays are indeed important in winning your brand from the competition. But the physical presence of your ad with billboards and other ubiquitous OOH media is equally important.
Billboards and OOH media cannot be shifted, replaced or ignored by the audience.
