#PEPCITY is PepsiCo’s unique Super Bowl venue in New York City’s Bryant Park. Designed to serve as a large-scale “thank you gift” to New York, the activation spans 10,000 square feet and is enclosed by an 80-foot-wide-by-40-foot-high dome.
The event was livestreamed on www.pepsi.com, and included a click-to-donate button to support the Bob Woodruff Foundation and its efforts on behalf of America’s military veterans.
