CMG Holding Group's Subsidiary Holds Event That Features New Yorkers "Eating" a Billboard

First of its Kind! 

CHICAGO and NEW YORK - (NewMediaWire) - December 22, 2021 - Visitors can see and do many things in downtown Manhattan, but it is not every day they can “eat” a billboard.


CMG Holding Group, Inc., (OTC: CMGO) today said that XA, The Experiential Agency, its wholly owned subsidiary, recently held an event in New York City’s Astor Place in which the public was invited to eat seasonal holiday cakes that fit into a balanced diet from a billboard.

The billboard was created for Gelesis, the maker of Plenity®, an FDA-cleared weight management approach, to challenge the idea that people can’t eat the foods they love while losing weight.  

Plenity is designed to help people feel satisfied with smaller portions, while still enjoying foods they love.  Plenity uses a novel approach, inspired by vegetables, to make adults feel fuller faster with lesser portions.

“The event was a huge success for XA, including attracting major media coverage.  A visit to allow our shareholders to experience the excellent work done by our subsidiary,” said Glenn B. Laken, CMG Holding Group’s CEO.  “There will be additional major events for XA in the near future and we look forward to sharing them with our investors.”
