Downtown Phoenix Inc. (DPI) Street Pole Banner Program manages the use of decorative banners to enhance the streetscape and publicize special events, organizations and activities. The program encompasses more than 300 poles throughout Downtown Phoenix that can be used by a variety of eligible organizations.
Because demand for banner space often exceeds supply, certain users are given priority:
- Educational facility or other nonprofit group based downtown that is hosting an event or campaign
- Groups hosting an event or convention at the Phoenix Convention Center, Chase Field, US Airways Center or other downtown venue
- Special event or activity occurring downtown that is open to the public
- Any entity wishing to promote an event, exhibit or celebration of civic interest within downtown
- Other organizations as determined appropriate by DPI
Please note: Banners may not be used for the sole purpose of advertising merchandise, products or a corporate entity. The primary purpose is to enhance the visual experience for downtown visitors, employees and residents.
Pricing includes printing, installation, and removal of two, double-sided banners per pole.
- Nonprofit rate: $150/short pole; $300/tall pole
- Standard rate: $200/short pole; $350/tall pole
- Extended duration surcharge (more than 14 days): 15% 14+ days; 25% 30+ days
Tall pole installations are subject to order and installation duration minimums.
Activation of the pedestrian environment and promoting events are the two main purposes of street pole banners. Advertising specific products, merchandise, services or individual businesses is strictly limited to the sponsor or company logo, which can consume no more than 25% of the visible banner area.
Unacceptable content includes but is not limited to:
- Messaging that is political or religious in subject matter
- Specific pricing or individual product promotion
- Messages promoting tobacco and or alcohol products
Final artwork must be approved by the street pole banner program manager before going into production.
