Branded Cities Network Has Set the Stage, and Table, For Iconic Event in Times Square, New York

NEW YORK, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Branded Cities Network ("BCN") designed and built Times Square's largest multi-day event in the history of the Square.  The 9-day event, spanning over the course of three weeks, promotes awareness for Stand Up 2 Cancer ("SU2C") alongside their partners at MasterCard.  The event gives guests a one-of-a-kind dining experience in the heart of Times Square perched 20 feet above the action of Times Square and utilizing BCN spectacular signage as a unique backdrop to the event at The Durst Organization's 4 Times Square.  MasterCard has also partnered with OpenTable, allowing guests to make their dining reservations for this unique experience: a five course meal prepared by famed chef Marcus Samuelsson.

Branded Cities & Durst help MasterCard “Stand Up To Cancer” in Times Square.

MasterCard and their agency, Posterscope, teamed up with BCN because the vision of the iconic multi-day event required a team with the specialized talents of displaying great media coupled with an ability to lead and execute their vision of the event seamlessly. 

"Branded Cities' staff has worked in the complicated, fast-paced world of Times Square for several decades and knows the event and signage permitting hurdles well," said Steve Ellman, Chairman of BCN.  "The tragedies of cancer affect everyone, and we are delighted to put our Times Square signage and event knowledge to use for such a great cause."

The Durst Organization joined the Times Square landscape nearly 50 years ago. "BCN promoted our building as the perfect combination of location and proximity to signage for the SU2C event and the response has been overwhelmingly positive," said David Neil, Chief Administrative Officer of the Leasing and Marketing Division of The Durst Organization.
