The City of Sydney banner network is a vital part of many of Opera Australia’s marketing campaigns. Their reach, impact, and effectiveness is unparalleled.

City of Sydney is dedicated to celebrating the cultural and creative institutions that shape our city.

Opera Australia

We've enjoyed working closely with City of Sydney for the past decade, utilising their extensive banner network to promote major exhibitions including the much loved annual Archibald Prize and the record-breaking Picasso exhibition. An essential part of many our marketing campaigns, the banners are an extremely effective channel for increasing awareness and reaching a mass audience.

Art Gallery of New South Wales

It’s really so valuable for us and such an important part of our marketing campaigns and brand recognition.

Bangarra Dance Theatre Australia

The City of Sydney works closely with major events organisations such as Destination NSW, who frequently use the outdoor banner network's premium locations to promote their Sydney events.

Over the years these have included Vivid Sydney, major sporting events such as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, the AFC Asian Football Cup 2015 and various musicals such as The Lion King, Wicked and Les Misérables.
