After a very pleasing start to the year in which growth in the first two months even exceeded that of the previous years, the closure of shops and wide-reaching restrictions in public life and on public transport ordered by the Federal Council as part of its pandemic measures, which will last until at least 19 April 2020, are having a significant negative effect on APG|SGA’s business activities. Although it is currently impossible to predict the economic consequences, the company must assume that there will be a substantial fall in sales in the coming weeks or months. The Board of Directors and Management of APG|SGA have therefore decided to bring in short-time working as of 24 March 2020 until further notice.
At the Annual General Meeting on 14 May 2020, the Board of Directors of APG|SGA AG will nominate Maya Bundt and Jolanda Grob as new, additional Board members.
Of the 36 campaigns nominated, 18 were presented with Swiss Poster Awards – and the vegetarian "Kein Tier im Visier" (Don’t shoot me) campaign was also awarded the accolade of "2019 Poster of the Year". Given the special situation in Switzerland, the gold, silver and bronze trophies will be personally presented to the winners in the next few days. The APG|SGA Poster Night was not held because of the spread of the coronavirus.
The selection is complete and the new APG|SGA Poster of the Month has been confirmed. After a thrilling head-to-head, these are the winning posters.
On 6th April, APG|SGA opens the booking window for the second half of 2020. The focus is on the expansion of digital advertising media at absolute top locations.
