Videotron Wins 2011 Grand Prix CREA, for Advertising Campaign Focused on Superior Customer Service

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - March 30, 2012) - In another confirmation of its special relationship with Quebecers, Videotron has been awarded the prestigious Grand Prix CRÉA for its English-language advertising campaign, in which Videotron customer service and technical support advisors are put to the test by comic Sugar Sammy. In the French-language version, the mystery customer was played by well-known impressionist André-Philippe Gagnon. The campaign, developed with Sid Lee, uses humour to highlight Videotron's differentiating characteristics and its employees' single-minded commitment to delivering the best possible customer experience.

"The Grand Prix CRÉA attests to the creativity of Videotron's and Sid Lee's people, and to the connection we have developed with our customers over the years," said Robert Dépatie, President and CEO of Videotron. "That long-lasting relationship of trust rests, first and foremost, on our dedicated employees, exceptional customer service and reliable, leading-edge products and services."

The attachment between Videotron and its customers is an ongoing story; the Grand Prix CRÉA comes a few weeks after Videotron was ranked the most respected telecommunications company in Québec for the seventh year in a row.
