This year has been another action-packed year in out of home (OOH).
Over the course of the year OOH has seen more examples of dynamic digital campaigns on the streets, headway being made into better usage and application of data, and there has been a marked progression towards achieving greater accountability.
Looking ahead to 2018, let’s take a minute to reflect on the insights garnered from OOH and hone in on the trends, technology and market factors we predict will come to the forefront in Australia in 2018.

Automation will drive efficiency

Whilst still in its infancy in Australia, in 2018 more agencies and media partners will be creating their own platforms to make headway into Automation. While programmatic online began with real time bidding and has moved towards private marketplaces, OOH is better structured to start in this place. However significant investment is required by the media operators to upgrade their systems and better handle automation at a basic level. 2018 will see a significant focus to automate transactions in earnest.

Smarter data = smarter campaigns

The use of data within OOH continues to strengthen its offering as a channel. Telcos and mobile publishers are turning their attention to data provision in a more meaningful way for OOH usage. OOH is no longer just about branding and will begin to have more opportunity to make use of huge anonymized data sets that, when fused with a brand’s first party data, will provide a competitive advantage with smarter planning and deployment.
