Wavemaker has been appointed by Trainline, Europe’s leading independent rail and coach platform, to handle all media strategy and planning across the UK, Italy and France. The decision follows a competitive pitch.
Trainline selected Wavemaker for the account based on its ability to offer unrivalled local knowledge and expertise, backed by a world-leading media network. During the pitch process the agency effectively demonstrated its prowess in producing a bespoke media planning and buying strategy; one that aligned perfectly with the specific demands and needs of each of Trainline’s three core markets, their target audience and customers.
Following the appointment, Wavemaker will leverage their local media expertise to ensure Trainline’s unmissable creative campaign activations run across the most appropriate channels in the UK, France and Italy. This will include social media, addressable TV, digital audio, out of home (OOH) and digital out of home (DOOH), as well as digital, radio and influencer partnerships.
As soon as we met the Trainline team, we knew that we had shared values. Now more than ever, those travelling across Europe are becoming conscious of the impact climate change is having on our world.”
