Following its conversion to an LED display, the sign will be able to display full motion video across its massive 150' H x 12' W surface. Brand images will be able to surround and interact with dynamic 'TIMES SQUARE' lettering, and the sign will be crowned by a 16' digital circle.

Driving unparalleled engagement for sponsors is a comprehensive marketing package that includes exclusive use of a static billboard adjacent to the sign. Other key elements include:

    --  Sponsor logo and messaging within 16' digital circle capping the sign;
    --  Fully-customizable 'TIMES SQUARE' letters and background for thematic
        tie-ins; and
    --  VIP seating at Times Square's most anticipated events including Broadway
        on Broadway, Thanksgiving Day Parade and New Year's Eve.
