Thursday 29th September 2011 sees Hyundai take over the newly updated LED billboard in Piccadilly Circus in the heart of London featuring Hyundai's 'New Thinking. New Possibilities' creative.

The 116sq metre space has been held by Sanyo since 1978 and is estimated to have been seen by over 56 million people from around the world every year.

The billboard was the only remaining one to use the traditional cold cathode tubes (neons) introduced in 1923. The billboard now uses state-of-the-art high-resolution LED lights.

Tony Whitehorn, managing director, Hyundai UK says: "We are delighted to have achieved such a prestigious space in the heart of such a vibrant city. It is a rare opportunity for our brand to become part of the London landscape and to engage with millions of global consumers on a daily basis.

"Only fifty brands have advertised on this site over its 100 year history and adding Hyundai to that list shows just how far the brand has come in recent years. It represents a significant investment for Hyundai and highlights just how important the UK is to the Hyundai business."
