Glodow Nead’s campaign focuses on the ways in which the Downtown Boston BID has supported businesses through the pandemic and in preparation for the reopening. It will also highlight the annual events that the BID has resumed hosting, including the Fourth of July’s Boston Harborfest, the Summer Street Arts Market and Dine Out Boston. Ronin Advertising is handling creative for the campaign “We have been patiently waiting for the day we could safely welcome everyone back to Downtown Boston and the ‘It’s Time’ campaign perfectly captures the range of emotions we are feeling now,” said Downtown Boston BID president and CEO Rosemarie Sansone. According to data collected by the BID, approximately 78 percent of ground-floor retailers and 65 percent of restaurants that were open pre-pandemic have now reopened to the public.
