M8 Tower, Glasgow (RISE+)

Overview

Introducing the M8 Tower. Scotland’s number one advertising structure offering unbeatable visiability and exposure. Situated on the country’s busiest road which connects the nation’s two biggest cities: Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The double-sided RISE+ advertising screen delivers more than two million impacts a fortnight as motorists and their passengers travel in both directions along the M8 motorway which also connects Glasgow to Edinburgh, Paisley, Greenock and Kilmarnock.

With its unique proximity to Glasgow International Airport, the M8 Tower captures almost all the airline passengers who arrive and depart by car. The airport carries more than 9.9 million passengers a year, travelling to and from more than 100 destinations making it the prime advertising space in Scotland.

The M8 Tower has been built to create maximum impact and boasts unparalleled visibility along the M8 corridor with no other competing roadside media. It is an iconic and striking steel structure, fitted with a dynamic lighting solution to further enhance brands’ campaigns. The site has also been decorated with the world- famous Paisley Pattern, an homage to its location in Paisley, Renfrewshire.

RISE+

The M8 Tower is one of the headline sites in our RISE+ portfolio: an exclusive network of outdoor advertising sites that are landmarks in their own right. These sites are selected for RISE+ because they are positioned in nationally renowned locations, famed for their intrinsic high-traffic levels, and the structures themselves are stunning, unmissable talking points.

Think of RISE+ as our platinum collection.
