Gewista CEO and host Karl Javurek was delighted how many clients, partners and friends of Gewista attended the Billboard Party again this year and together enjoyed a lavish celebration: “It fills me with pride,” said Javurek, “and every year I am once again impressed, at the great importance assumed by the Billboard Party. This event in the splendid arcade courtyard of Vienna City Hall can be seen as a ‘thank you’ from Gewista to its clients and partners for the great cooperation we share, as well as for the constant interest and trust given towards Gewista and its Out of Home Media. “My special thanks”, says Javurek at the end, “also goes to the staff of  Gewista, who through their commitment represent the constant successes of our company.”

The Gewista Audience Award “campaign of your life” went to Gabriele Schiller
The guests of the 33rd Billboard Party were guided through the evening by host Norbert Oberhauser and besides the culinary treats, were entertained by music from ‘The Rats are back’ with big band, ‘The Bad Powells’, jazzer Louie Austen and Disco beats by Mr Hitparade Udo Huber. Also there was the excitement at guessing the overall winner of the Out Of Home Awards, which had been given out a few weeks before the Gewista Billboard Party at the annual public award ‘Campaign of your life'. Today Gabriele Schiller was correct in picking Digital Media-Spot „Xmas Mobile iPhone 6s“ from A1 Telekom Austria AG (D.N.S./OmniMedia GmbH).The proud winner can look forward to an Out of Home campaign worth over 50,000 euros which they designed and Billboards with their own personal message.

3D Mapping-Show brings down the Town hall
Another first for Austria highlight of the Billboard Party was the sensational 3D Mapping-show which was projected onto the facade of the arcade courtyard and was produced by Habegger and Media Apparat. The town hall was brightly transformed. A journey with breathtaking effects led by the world of Gewista Out of Home advertising. Here the guests were presented with a digital show in 3D full of superlatives.
