In a press statement, CNN claims that it is the exclusive global media platform for Gucci’s campaign due to "an unrivalled reach amongst male high income earners and luxury consumers".Antonio Canto, vice president, regional ad sales, EMEA, CNN International said: “CNN sees luxury as one of the fastest-growing sectors turning to pan-regional brand solutions, and this particular proposition – tailored for Gucci and its business objectives – shows how brands can associate with high quality content to reach and engage with an upscale global audience of male high income earners and luxury consumers.”Source: Press release
