ICON Media Wins At APEX Awards!

ICON Media (formerly Gridcast Media) has won a Bronze Medal in the Transportation Category at the 2017 APEX Awards at this year’s Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas! The APEX Awards recognizes companies that have displayed excellence in installation of digital displays and interactive technologies. This year, finalists were chosen from a list of 138 entrants across 12 different countries for 9 major digital signage categories. ICON Media is honored to have won for the installation at Toronto Pearson International Airport.



The award winning project called – The Flower – is a fully custom designed feature consisting of four petals extruding directly out from the floor and spanning 35 feet into the air to display flight information at Terminal 1 of Toronto Pearson International Airport. ICON Media (Gridcast Media at the time) worked in coordination with Eventscape – a custom architectural fabrication company in Toronto – to design the entire structure. In addition to the 4 petals, the team at Gridcast installed a 3 foot high halo which completely surrounds the 4 steel support beams. The halo was installed using a 3.5 mm curved LED display designed to show advertising and ambient content to enhance the overall space.

This is ICON’s second win at the APEX Awards having received an Award in the Retail category in 2014 for work completed with Holt Renfrew. ICON Media strives to be at the forefront of innovation and continues to create immersive brand experiences for their clients.
