Duty Free sales take off at Bergen Airport thanks to PPDS
Hosting one of the busiest aviation routes in Europe, Norway’s Bergen Airport helps over 6 million passengers get to where they need to be each year. First opened in 1955, the airport has received a new expansion terminal for its growing demand of international and domestic flights.
With the expansion of Norway’s second largest airport, it was imperative that the newly added terminal made the perfect impression for its perpetual flow of passengers. A newly opened duty free store within the new sector was added to help cover the high cost of operations. To entice customers to shop, a promotional solution was needed to influence customers to visit the store.
To ensure that the new Duty Free store at Bergen Airport met its sales targets, 3C Technology teamed up with PPDS to design and implement an innovative promotional display. Together, a custom-built 16-screen videowall was strategically positioned at the bottom of the arrivals escalator. With a restrictive physical space, the 55-inch screens were masterfully arranged in a 2x8 format to form an over-sized high-brightness curved display for maximum impact. This resulted in an immediate increase in sales for the duty free store with offers, local guide content and promotions being pushed instantly by the duty free store operators.
