OAAA Launches Initiative Focused on Analytics, Data Use, and Programmatic for OOH 



New Committees to Explore, Facilitate OOHtech Standards and Education

Washington, DC – The Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) is leading (out of home) OOH advertising industry efforts to facilitate automated transactions at scale and to integrate OOH seamlessly into the broader media ecosystem. To achieve the goal, OAAA has formed two new membership committees. The Data Use and Analytics Committee and the Programmatic and Automaton Committee held inaugural meetings in New York earlier this fall. Both committees have been tasked with understanding, evaluating, and providing expertise to advance OOHtech.

“As the umbrella organization for all things OOH, OAAA works closely with its members to unite the industry around the use of data, analytics, and automation in planning, buying, and reporting OOH campaigns,” said OAAA Chief Marketing Officer Stephen Freitas. “These new committees will be active working groups developing best practices to ensure the entire OOH industry speaks with one unified voice when it comes to processes and standardization.”

Initial work for both committees will include the creation of standards, definitions, and protocols for data usage and programmatic exchange within the OOH industry. Education will be another important focus for both committees.

“In order for our media sector to be integrated fully into the digital media ecosystem, it is imperative that OOH have standards, definitions, and protocols around the value represented in digital today,” said James Price, chair of the OAAA Data Use and Analytics Committee, and SVP and chief product officer at OUTFRONT Media. “The important work of the committee is establishing these requirements for industry participants, to properly represent the multiple facets of the full value delivered.”
