    Under a joint venture, Transmedia LLC and Performance First Digital LLC have been awarded the advertising concession contract to sell and manage advertising placement at the Port of New Orleans. 
     
    The Port of New Orleans is home to both the Erato St. and Julia St. terminals from which Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Breakaway, Crystal Cruises and Disney sail during various times of the year.
     
    Transmedia LLC is owned by Michelle Gobert and Performance First Digital is owned by Krista Pouncy-Dyson. Together the concession grants them exclusive rights to operate static and digital bill-board advertising and deploy innovative advertising marketing solutions that feature the latest generation of mobile geo-fencing digital technology.
     “Having the Port of New Orleans select our proposal and agree to work with us to develop their program from the ground up is a dream come true,” Gobert said. “Krista and I are both elated to be working together to build a first-class advertising program at the Port of New Orleans.”

    “I have spent my entire career helping businesses grow by utilizing strategic marketing solutions,” Dyson said. “Having the ability to combine out of home advertising with digital mobile device geo-fencing, is a game-changer for local businesses and gives them the ability to attract even more customers to their physical locations. I am passionate about helping businesses succeed. I am excited to be a part of this project.”
