RALEIGH-DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Visitors to Raleigh-Durham International Airport will soon be greeted by a new digital showcase highlighting the Triangle's growth, hospitality, culture, Southern cuisine, education and business climate the moment they step off the aircraft.

Over the past few weeks, representatives from Interspace Airport Advertising have been meeting with local businesses to share plans for the exciting new digital advertising program at RDU International Airport and have them secure their placement. Program highlights include 57" LCD Screens throughout the concourse and baggage claim areas; a 6' x 7' Seamless Multi-Plasma Digital Tower in Terminal 2; a 7'w x 6'h LCD Grid Walls in Terminal 1; large format stretched-graphic displays in the baggage claim and concourse areas; and a brand new digital Visitor & Information Center in each of the baggage claim areas equipped with 57" LCDs, touchscreen computers, printout and mobile media capabilities.

Tom Clapham, marketing manager for Duke Medicine, said, "RDU's new Terminal 2 is a modern building of intelligent design befitting an international airport. Interspace's new advertising offerings complement the level of innovation in the architecture, and we appreciate the creative potential that they afford. Considering that the mission of Duke Medicine is to transform medicine and health locally and globally, advertising in our community's gateway to the world is a natural means for us to remind visitors of the renowned research and training that happens here. We also expect that the campaign will raise awareness of our commitment to improving community health."

Raleigh-Durham International Airport is a focal point of the Triangle region -- which also includes the high-profile, technology- driven Research Triangle Park. The new custom Digital Community Showcase will deliver unprecedented value to area businesses seeking a way to reach the airport's 10 million travelers each year.

"We are hoping to see at least one third more increased activity in the hotel's reservations and revenue," said Tricia Durham, general manager for Days Inn - Raleigh Airport. "I am sure this new technology will make our future customers, and the Triangle, excited about the digital age we are entering, and we look forward to seeing the display that will be developed by Interspace."
