SpaceandPeople plc ("SpaceandPeople")

Signing of Contract for Concourses Exhibitions, Events and Distributions with Network Rail


SpaceandPeople (AIM: SAL), the retail, promotional and brand experience specialist, wins exclusive rights to promote brands across all Network Rail stations in the UK for five years.

SpaceandPeople is delighted to announce that it has secured an exclusive agreement with Network Rail.

The specialist agency now has the exclusive rights to promote brands across all Network Rail Stations in the UK. This contract win reinforces SpaceandPeople's position as Europe's biggest company selling experiential media.

The Network Rail portfolio covers a unique blend of business, retail and leisure.  Rail passengers have a longer dwell time than many other venues and are a receptive audience for a wide range of media and promotional activity and retail options. Across the portfolio the annual footfall is over one billion and it is estimated that this will increase.

SpaceandPeople will deliver a strategic approach across Network Rail's portfolio of stations, while delivering targeted and appropriate promoters and retailers to each individual location.  SpaceandPeople will improve the commercialisation activity in the stations by working closely with Network Rail and understanding their strategy and priorities and deliver commercialisation solutions which are synergistic with, and complementary to, the overall environment in each station.

Matthew Bending, SpaceandPeople CEO said:

"This is a significant win for SpaceandPeople and it complements the existing successful shopping centre business that we have built over the years. The Network Rail portfolio offers an extremely large footfall across the UK, which provides us with a unique opportunity to build a bigger network of transport hubs in the UK and Europe."
