Digital Signage

Cobo Center can help you market your event with digital signage in a variety of ways: live stream broadcasting; advertising; sponsorship highlights; hybrid meeting broadcasts for off-site attendees; and information distribution. Here are a few of the products that can help you promote and enrich your event.  Consult your sales or event manager for complete information.

Exterior digital display advertising and shared revenue opportunities

Commercial sponsorship and advertising revenue opportunities are available on the exterior digital diplay on the outside corner of  Cobo Center at Washington Bouvelard and Congress Street. Commercial rates:  30% commission of total revenue sold OR $10,000 weekly fee for non-exclusive use.  Special negotiation based on shorter time frame or ad sales is possible. The two 60'x25' boards create 3.000 square feet of advertising space that runs 24 hours a day in the heart of the downtown Detroit financial district.

The Cobo Center Marquee digital sign provides a unique opportunity for planners to highlight their event and sponsors on the giant 160'x30' board that overlooks Cobo Square, Jefferson Avenue, Hart Plaza, the Detroit Crown Plaza and the Detroit Riverwalk.  One full size graphic for your event is complimentary. Additional media will incur small programming and design fees.
