Santiago, Chile, April 07, 2011 --( Amphibious floating billboards are beginning to make frequent appearances along the coast and beaches of South America. bbi Display Systems, the patent holder and global distributor of the amphibious inflatable signs, has reached agreements with Grupo Big to exclusively represent the product in several South American markets including Chile, Argentina and Peru. Grupo Big, a leader of out-of-home marketing and nontraditional advertising in the region, is based in Concepción, Chile.

bbi Display's inflatable billboard products made their first appearance in Pucon Town, Chile on Villarrica Lake. A 36' floating billboard, commissioned by Outdoor Media Group and operated by Grupo Big, was pulled along lake beaches for telecommunications company, Entel. The bbi inflatable beach billboards were seen by thousands of tourists and locals who packed the shoreline.
