The expanding Out-of-Home infrastructure now encompasses not only bought and owned media, but also devices such as mobile, laptop and tablet that are all used primarily while out of home. This convergence of media is driven by the evolving consumer landscape, which is why our Hot Topics for 2014 primarily focus on the intersection of where technology meets media on a multi-platform level.
As a result of the rapid proliferation of mobile devices and screen options we are seeing a significant increase in location-based marketing, as well as the need for value. The momentum behind environment awareness is adding a layer of context that allows applications to be grounded in utility rather than pure entertainment, providing consumers with a more useful and engaging connection.
Our 2014 Hot Topics include a full range of themes including real-time optimization, borrowed formats, smart devices and OOH’s affect on the speed of delivery.
