Charlottetown, PEMarch 26, 2013

VANCOUVER, BC, and CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – March 26, 2013 – Expedia® CruiseShipCenters®, announced today they are partnering with ScreenScape Networks (“ScreenScape”) the leading provider of community-based digital signage solutions to power intelligent displays inside the company’s retail locations across North America.

“We have strong relationships with the world’s leading travel suppliers,” says John Mast, Vice President of Marketing for Expedia CruiseShipCenters. “Place-based media offers our partners a new and richly-visual way to communicate with retail customers across our entire network while improving the consistency of our brand.”

ScreenScape is a software platform that connects businesses and helps them to engage audiences inside real world places using Internet-enabled digital displays. ScreenScape’s community-based approach represents a shift in the way digital signage networks are built and in the way digital content, such as online video, is distributed to places of business. Using a ScreenScape Group, Expedia CruiseShipCenters can form its own place-based media network consisting of its own retail locations or any other business that is a member of the ScreenScape Community.

“As equipment costs decline, and as digital content becomes more readily available, it is only natural that we would want to apply this technology to show our customers their dream vacation,” continued Mast. “Place-based media is coming of age and ScreenScape is helping to make this technology easier to deploy and easier to manage.”

“We’d like to welcome Expedia CruiseShipCenters to the ScreenScape Community,” said Kevin Dwyer, CEO of ScreenScape. “They join a vibrant travel and tourism community already using ScreenScape. It is gratifying to see so many interesting partnerships in this industry being expressed through place-based media.”
