Advertising Spotlight: 2016 Summer Olympics

From August 5-21, Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Summer Olympics, a competition of 10,500 athletes in 42 sports from 206 countries. With 7.5 million ticketholders and even more tuning in to live TV, this colossal event could be your opportunity for business exposure. The 2012 London Olympics were the most watched event ever in U.S. TV history; according to NBC, “this year’s competition is projected to be the most-watched event in television history and associating your brand with the Olympics on a local level will deliver unmatched consumer engagement.”

NBC’s 2016 Olympics ad packages will allow you to connect your brand to your local market across multiple NBC cable and online networks, but navigating all of the options can become cumbersome and sometimes confusing. The Public Relations and Marketing Group is well-versed in the coordination and placement of all advertising spotlights.
