Trojena's Ecotourism Push Prominently Displayed In 3 Global Cities

A new out-of-home campaign to introduce the future Trojena resort has debuted in New York, London and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Located in the high-tech city of Neom, Saudi Arabia, the destination will promote ecotourism and economic growth in the region.

The project is set for completion by 2026. It is forecast to add $800 million to the kingdom’s economy by 2030.

Pixel Artworks collaborated with McCann NY to create the content splashed across huge 3-D billboards. In New York, the work took over the Big Kahuna in Times Square. In London, the ads run in Piccadilly Circus.

Riaz Farooq, creative director for Pixel Artworks, added the work mirrors Neom’s visionary focus.It allows unique features to break physically and symbolically free from the canvas in each major city and into the consciousness of a global audience.”
