Realtors welcome DNC visitors, delegates to North Carolina

The Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association and the North Carolina Association of Realtors® (NCAR) received a grant from the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) to run digital billboards during the Democratic National Convention (DNC). The associations worked with Adams Outdoor Advertising to create ten digital billboards now on display in various locations throughout the Piedmont region through Sept. 16. The billboard campaign serves as a way to welcome DNC delegates, media and visitors to North Carolina.

2012 Association/Carolina Multiple Listing Services, Inc. (CMLS) president Jennifer Frontera said, “We all know Charlotte, North Carolina is a great place to live and soon delegates, media and visitors from all over the U.S. will find that out. Even if visitors to this area don’t come back and call Charlotte home, we want to make sure they remember the Realtors® welcomed them to our great city and state.”

The bright blue digital billboards displaying the “Welcome to North Carolina” message will run in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Catawba, Gaston and Union Counties from August 20 – September 16, 2012.
