Grant Thornton LLP, Prince Edward Island (PEI), collaborates with Charlottetown airport to develop a unique client centric advertising campaign that is the first of its kind for the airport.

Launched mid-July 2016, with a run date of five months, the campaign focuses on three companies’ business success stories, specifically: Aspin Kemp & Associates, Top Dog Manufacturing, COWS Inc. All of which offer testament to what is possible on the Island. The branded creatives span the airport departure lounge, profiling testimonials and industry growth statistics, and anchored with a headline that speaks to both pride and growth: Prince Edward Island, where businesses grow.

“This campaign demonstrates the pride we take in our clients’ growth and success,” said Kathy O’Rourke, FCPA, FCA, Managing Partner, Grant Thornton, PEI. “Prince Edward Island is well-known around the world as a tourist destination, but it’s also a vibrant place to do business.”

“We’re grateful to the Charlottetown Airport Authority for helping us showcase three truly inspiring examples of Island businesses that are at the forefront of innovation, product development and marketing,” adds Kathy. “We’re truly proud to support the business community in P.E.I. and Atlantic Canada in this way.”

“We think it’s great when advertisers want to explore interesting ways of getting their messages to growing number of P.E.I. air travelers;” said Doug Newson, C.E.O., Charlottetown Airport Authority, “kudos to Grant Thornton for profiling PEI companies that are growing and making an impact on the world stage.”
