MARsum is one of the unique marketing events that you can attend in 2020-21 to discuss the following latest OOH advertising trends in Las Vegas.

Digital Touch To OOH Advertising

All around the world, many different industries have been forced to give in to the increasing presence of digital media. Just like them, OOH advertising too has to integrate digital media into its functioning in order to stay relevant in present times. As per the KPMG report, out-of-home advertising done using digital means brought in 30 percent of the OOH revenues throughout the world. This is down to its ability to produce vivid colors, motion, and convenience.

Application of Storytelling

In 2020-21, one trend that you can surely expect to see is the application of storytelling. Many products and services in the previous year used compelling stories to reel in consumers. Events, trade shows, direct mailing, which are below the line OOH activities, have already proven quite effective in this case. Brands need to focus heavily on unique ideas revolving around engagement, experience, and most importantly, innovation.

Several Places For Placing Adverts

While the digital wave has caused disruption in various industries, it has significantly helped OOH advertisements as now there are plethora of places where these advertisements can be used with the help of technology. For instance, you can employ them at airports; public transports such as trains, buses, taxis; waiting sheds; and blank walls. All these have established themselves as effective means of achieving advertising goals even in the presence of conventional billboard advertising.

The KPMG report has found out that advertisements used at airports are among the most effective ones and have contributed as much as 27 percent to the revenue share in 2019.

Detailed OOH Advertisements

In 2020-21, we can expect outdoor advertisements to do more than just mere advertising. Relaying essential information about a service, product, or business is the obvious job of OOH advertisements. But in 2020-21, you can expect them to go a step further as they will be passing along the statistic profile of those who connected with it.

The traditional billboards will not function the same as they will start using smart features such as sensors and facial recognition software to effectively communicate with the target audience.

OOH advertisements will surely go through unique changes in 2020-21. Make sure that you attend international marketing events in 2020-21 to discuss the upcoming changes in OOH advertisements with marketing experts and professionals from all around the world.
