"Interspace Airport Advertising has had a solid relationship with SPP Marketing Services Inc in Canada for the past ten years. SPP Marketing Services has been our preferred vendor for direct sales in Canada. Interspace has long-term exclusive agreements with 13 airports in Canada. SPP Marketing Services has had a presence for many years in some of these airports including the Ottawa, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax International Airports.

SPP Marketing Services was the first company in this field in Canada to successfully manage airport promotions in a professional manner. SPP Marketing Services developed a code of conduct that has served as a standard for all manned display kiosks. SPP Marketing Services' reps are trained to not only sell products but to act as customer service reps for the airports. In fact they go through the same training as airport employees. As a result, airport authorities have received positive feedback from travelers. A senior member of the Ottawa International Airport staff thanked the people in the SPP Marketing Services booth near security in their airport for their part in that airport being recognized as #2 in the world for customer services last year. 
SPP Marketing Services have the expertise that is needed to make an airport campaign a worthwhile investment. This has been proven with clients that have been happy customers of ours for many years now."
