At the end of last year, VIOOH published its annual report ‘State of the Nation: Programmatic OOH 2021‘ report. The report surveyed Australian agency and advertising executives about their perceptions of the programmatic DOOH (prDOOH) industry. The results showed that just over eight out of ten (82%) industry executives plan to integrate prDOOH more closely into multi-channel campaigns and 85% of executives are considering investing in prDOOH expertise – showing a huge opportunity for the DOOH industry in this market.
