Taking over New York’s South Street Seaport on Tuesday evening, AOL threw a carnival-like NewFront dubbed “Access” to showcase its commitment to online video, mobile and data. The company highlighted its scale vis-à-vis its nearly year-long tie-up with Verizon, plunging into tons of original video programming and new partnerships.

- MediaPost, May 4 2016

AOL changed up the standard NewFronts experience on Tuesday with its over-the-top presentation/block party for advertisers, press and consumers. 

Rather than just have executives discuss programming over sizzle reels, the tech giant decided to go all out. The theme was "AOL Access: A New Kind of NewFront" — the event was meant for everyone to experience.

- Mashable, May 4 2016

AOL has a message for advertisers: It is open. The company, which was acquired by Verizon last year, is not only open for business, but it literally opened its NewFront event to the public and to brands it doesn't own or operate. AOL took over the South Street Seaport on Tuesday night for a block-party-style NewFront that showcased talent and content from brands such as Huffington Post, TechCrunch and Maker, alongside partners like the National Football League and Hearst.

AOL is taking its NewFront from the stage to New York City streets. Instead of a one-size-fits-all presentation, attendees will receive a curated experience based on their audience targets and interest. So if you are a technology brand, for example, you may want to spend more time at AOL's technology and autos activation, where you will be able to view content, meet talent and interact directly with brands like TechCrunch and Engadget.
