PATTISON Outdoor Sponsors Student Competition for Next Generation of Sales Talent

PATTISON Outdoor Advertising is proud to be an official sponsor of the 2017 Great Canadian Sales Competition

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - The Great Canadian Sales Competition (GCSC) is inviting post-secondary students to share their passion for selling and consider sales as a career opportunity, and PATTISON Outdoor Advertising is excited to be an official sponsor of this year's competition. For a third year in a row, PATTISON Outdoor joins the GCSC's corporate sponsorship group connecting brands with young people who are at the early stages of their career exploration. As part of the partnership, PATTISON will donate advertising across the country to promote the competition, including Toronto (subway), Vancouver (transit shelters), Halifax (transit vehicle interiors), Calgary (transit vehicle interiors), Ottawa (transit vehicle interiors), Winnipeg (transit vehicle interiors), and Montreal (mall posters).

"As the nation's largest Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising company and a leader in advertising media sales, the relationship with the GCSC is a perfect fit," said Paul Mason, Toronto Retail Sales Manager, PATTISON Outdoor Advertising. "A career path in sales is not being considered as a desirable career path during post-secondary education and immediately afterwards, despite it providing higher earning potential and opportunities. As a leading sales organization in the OOH industry, the partnership with the GCSC is a fitting one, as it helps us connect our brand with students and helps them gain a better understanding of what a sales career is all about. We're proud to be a part of this competition for a third consecutive year."

The GCSC is a competition that educates students on sales as a career, and actively provides students with exposure to some of Canada's most influential companies. To learn more about The Great Canadian Sales Competition, visit
