Publishers Note:

Last week OOH Today broke the story that the OAAA would be recommending OOH Impressions Measurement Guidelines see the story here ⇒ Here is the first look at the to be released OAAA OOH Impression Measurement Guidelines

It is of interest to see two major OOH associations, which to a great extent in my opinion are more marketing and perhaps legislative in scope, becoming involved in measurement guidelines.

In today’s post below, we are sharing the World Out of Home Organization’s (WOO) news of their intent to ‘Creating Global Guidelines for Out of Home Audience Measurement,’ an initiative which is scheduled to be shared at its European Forum on May 18.  Check out the details of the WOO audience measurement initiative and an opportunity to register for the Euro Forum below. 



World Out of Home Organization to unveil new audience measurement initiative


Audience delivery is critical for the development and trading of all media, with credible, transparent and accountable measurement needed by advertisers, buyers and sellers alike.

Accordingly, the World Out of Home Organization is to unveil its “Creating Global Guidelines for Out of Home Audience Measurement” initiative at its European Forum on May 18.

The project will be chaired by Neil Eddleston of Runor Data Consulting, the world leading OOH audience measurement expert. Eddleston Chaired the original ESOMAR Technical Committee, that created the Global OOH guidelines in 2009. The updated guidelines will be developed on behalf of WOO by industry specialist Gideon Adey of the GUROOH consultancy. 

WOO is the only global organization for the collaboration, development and promotion of OOH media. They have formed a Technical Committee to include the leading independent OOH audience measurement bodies from 13 countries, across 6 continents, alongside 4 leading international OOH businesses.

The new guidelines will update OOH Audience measurement for the current and future OOH marketplace; provide a framework for the measurement of digital OOH; address the creation of audience data for automated trading; and the development of cross-media measurement techniques.

Eddleston says: “It’s vital that the OOH industry continues the development of world class audience measurement to compete with other data-heavy media for local and global ad spending. Out of Home has an amazing record of delivering excellent results for advertisers but we need the up-to-date ammunition to make our case most effectively.” 

The European Forum will be free to all WOO members, but non-members will also be able to register for €150 Euros.
