Themed Amandla Ngawethu (power to the people), the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God's annual Good Friday service was attended by a record number of members who gathered together at the Ellis Park precinct for an uplifting service of prayer and preaching. Marking the solemn and holy religious day, people travelled from regions throughout Gauteng, and from as far as Cape Town, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga, filling the Ellis Park Stadium and the Johannesburg Stadium to capacity. Overflow crowds sat on the adjacent cricket fields where they watched the event on large screens. The event was attended by Gauteng Social Development MEC Faith Mazibuko, prominent members of the ANC Women's League and 127 500 people including church members and members of the public.

Out of Home to fill in the DTT audience loss gaps - Continental Outdoor
Out of Home to fill in the DTT audience loss gaps

Out of Home advertising is the umbrella under which cross-media advertising campaigns assemble. Its inherent strength is that it can be seen as the 'shorthand' for brand-building by reinforcing and reminding consumers of ads they might have seen on TV, radio and/or in print with a succinct message in just seconds using brand cues that pull through from other media. It cannot be disputed that Out of Home advertising is an integral part of the communication mix. The strength of OOH will be endorsed with the migration of broadcasters from analogue to digital terrestrial TV and radio. Why?
