In today’s world of clicks, likes, and page views, OOH is the real thing. It offers real-life impact in a digital world, and can’t be blocked, skipped, or viewed by bots.
The OOH industry will demonstrate the reality of OOH during Advertising Week New York (September 23-26, 2019) with the launch of a hyper-targeted campaign. Using billboards, buses, bus shelters, LinkNYC kiosks, taxi tops, wrapped vehicles, and digital place-based screens, the OOH is Real campaign will prove to media and marketing executives the power of OOH to create immersive brand experiences in the real world.
OAAA’s new president and CEO Anna Bager, who came to OAAA this month from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), said, “Today’s innovative OOH medium reaches consumers on the go as they interact with their mobile devices. Think big screens driving consumers to small screens. A digital strategy is incomplete without OOH.”
A wrapped double-decker tour bus featuring a digital billboard serves as OOH’s mobile lounge experience during Advertising Week. Attendees can hop aboard, rest and recharge with refreshments, pick up an upcycled billboard bag, and chat with ambassadors about why and how the OOH medium is thriving in today’s digitally driven consumer landscape.
