Комплексный проект благоустройства в Виннице
It should be noted tha the public of Vinnytsia was very interested in changes happening in the city. Information about the Project diverged in the local media. Journalists took pictures of new transit shelters, took pictures of old ones and it was brought up for discussion. Citizens compared, expressed their opinions and commented. Local TV channels told about new transit shelters and illumination, asked townspeople about their impression.
In 2013 employees of Vinnytsia M. Kotsyubinsky Literary-memorial Museumapplied to "RTM-Ukraine" with the request to help in coverage of their preparing for a future anniversary of Ukrainian classic. The Museum provided unique photographic materials and together we made the whole street presentation in Kotsyubinsky str., reminding citizens about the literary heritage of the great writer. At bus stops waiting for the bus people could read excerpts from the best Kotsyubinsky lyrical short stories: to lighten the mood, to not forget about the main things in the daily routine. And that has also been the subject of discussion in the city's media environment.
And on city- lights installed recently along Pirogova str. there were posted the stories about the life of an eminent surgeon Pirogov, portraits of N. I. Pirogov, pictures of his tomb and of N. I. Pirogov House and Museum.
This Project is an example of the European partnerships between the city authorities, a representative of the business of outdoor advertising and city community. It was incredibly nice to work on the Project, seeing visible change and feeling live feedback from the city. During more than 2 years of joint work the city of Vinnitsa received: 10 modern transit shelters; 128 elements of art illumination. The advertising image of streets have changed. Now Vinnytsia advertising on the streets adjacent to the center has arranged according to a common European standard.
"RTM-Ukraine" has received 60 modern advertising carriers at the premium locations of Vinnitsa and became the leader of its advertising market. "RTM-Ukraine" investments in the Project has made over $ 4 million for 2 years .
This type of cooperation is called the Win-Win Principle because the benefits for all participants are obvious. The major operators of OOH-media in Europe and in the world work like that. Ukrainian OOH turns towards European standards of work. In conclusion it should be noted that the Project in Vinnitsa was not the first for "RTM-Ukraine" in this field and won't be the last. "RTM-Ukraine" continues the systematic work in this direction; the work that combines professionalism, business approach and social responsibility of business.
