Singapore, 31 October 2017: For the first time ever, one of the terminals at Singapore’s iconic Changi Airport will feature exclusive advertising of a single brand – Mundipharma’s BETADINE®. Travelers passing through Changi’s high-tech Terminal 4, which starts operations today, will be greeted with a range of over 100 health messages across more than 40 advanced advertising platforms.
The innovative technology adopted throughout Singapore’s eagerly-anticipated Terminal 4 such as automated check-in and facial recognition technology made it a natural fit for Mundipharma. The healthcare organisation – which has its Regional Headquarters in the city centre and is currently building a high-tech Global BETADINE® R&D Hub and Manufacturing facility in the country – is currently undergoing a digital transformation that has already included using virtual reality, augmented reality, facial mapping and apps to improve patient outcomes.
Given BETADINE® is the Official Healthcare Product Partner of Manchester City Football Club, a number of players appear in the campaign, including in an innovative multi-screen experience featuring three of the English Premier League leading Club’s stars.
Ms Teo Chew Hoon, Changi Airport Group’s Group Senior Vice President, Airside Concessions said, “Changi Airport Group is pleased to collaborate with Mundipharma, an international and well-loved brand, to launch our latest and most advanced advertising spaces in Changi Airport. Mundipharma and Changi Airport strive towards the same goals – to deliver high quality media content to our customers and enhance the communities that we serve.”
Mundipharma CEO, Raman Singh, said “We are delighted to again demonstrate our commitment to Singapore. I believe we share similar values – such as compassion, innovation and ambition – so we are proud to showcase our hero brand, BETADINE®, in one of Singapore’s crown jewels, Changi Airport.
“In an early milestone for BETADINE®, it was used to disinfect NASA’s Apollo 11 spacecraft after the first moon landing. This unique partnership with the world’s number one airport is another aeronautical chapter in the rich history of our brand,” added Mr Singh.
