Sunderland City Council

This review and audit report included:
Large format outdoor advertising – standard non-digital

Large format (six-sheet) outdoor advertising – standard non-digital

Lamppost banner advertising

Roundabout sponsorship

Sponsorship of events and other opportunities, including the

Sunderland International Air-show

Fortuna Associates is awaiting the decision of the City Council on how it wishes to take forward the recommendations in the report.
