At BackLite, we have recently partnered with Al Qana to secure exclusive advertising rights to this unique and iconic waterfront destination in the heart of Abu Dhabi. To celebrate this strategic collaboration, together with Al Qana’s management, we launched “The Curve,” one of the largest and most impactful digital screens in Abu Dhabi. The screen was inaugurated by Fouad Mashal, Founder & Vice President of Al Qana, and BackLite’s Chairman, Mr Bengt Bendeus.
This latest addition to our growing portfolio of digital destinations is a testament to the company’s expanding presence in the UAE, with a commitment to delivering premium advertising platforms to clients targeting large audiences. Al Qana spans over 2.4km of scenic waterfront walkways, offering seven anchor destinations, including waterside eateries, a cinema, an aquarium, a VR park, a kids’ zone, and wellness facilities, attracting a large number of tourists and affluent UAE Nationals. This first-of-its-kind lifestyle hub in Abu Dhabi offers brands a premium platform to reach an affluent audience in a unique environment.
Since its launch, “The Curve” has welcomed esteemed brands like FAB, Health Plus, Jeep, and Mercedes Benz, who have leveraged the capabilities of this cutting-edge screen by showcasing engaging FP3D campaigns backed by exceptional concepts.
As part of this ongoing collaboration, we will roll out a unique digital network and experiential opportunities offering an immersive experience to visitors. This shift to digital out-of-home (DOOH), supported by BackLite Intelligence, an ambitious data strategy, will allow brands to identify and target specific audiences, facilitate engaging, rich-media campaigns, and reach sophisticated visitors and affluent residents around the destination. This will contribute to an enhanced experience by offering relevant and contextualised content to audiences on the move.
