Jeremie Watkins founded Kre8 Media Outdoor Advertising in 2012. The outdoor media advertising executive saw one of Shaun Habibian’s digital billboards and contacted him immediately. A year later, the two men were partners and on their way to building a mobile billboard company with 42 trucks and 202 employees based in a 25,000-square-foot warehouse at 4050 W. Harmon Ave.
Watkins said his company has roughly half of the 70 to 80 outdoor billboard trucks in the Las Vegas Valley. He said his business grew, even in the post-recession years, because it offered affordable advertising.
He declined to give yearly revenue, but he did say 2016 “has been wonderful.”
He sees the industry growing in numbers, technology and sophistication. He sees more digital boards with high-tech beacons that will broadcast messages to nearby smartphones and souped-up trucks that can double as giant video games at special events.
Meanwhile, he and his design team have created unique mobile billboards that feature moving parts, such as the spinning wheel on the sign that promotes the “KÀ” show; or the giant beer keg, which tourists sometimes mistake for the real thing, for the Beerhaus at The Park on the Strip.
