“A top-level selection of leading media figures in the region, including Sam Balsara, chairman of Madison World and Cathy O'Connor, CEO and managing director of oOh!Media will focus on the world leading capabilities of OOH in the Asia Pacific territories and pinpoint key areas where the medium can maximise its strengths and accelerate future development,” said the World Out of Home Organization (WOO).

“The APAC region has been leading the global recovery from the pandemic and its higher levels of internet usage and smartphone ownership than the world average are providing great potential for expanding the use of DOOH.

“The region has also led the world in innovations such as 3D effects in DOOH, which not only provide stunning visual effects but, with its sophisticated data capabilities and smart OOH, provide linkups with multiple scenarios and ensuring data driven efficiency.”

Experts will analyse progress being made in areas including Audience Metrics, DOOH innovation, Programmatic as part of the Adtech revolution, Creative Technology and also Media Owner Collaboration.
