Embracing Change

OOH advertising today is a diverse mix of billboards, street furniture, transit, and place-based media. The medium has evolved from paper posters and hand-painted signs, to vinyl and digital billboards, to place-based displays and emerging technologies like geofencing and wireless beacons.
