The Canadian Out-of-Home Marketing and Measurement Bureau (COMMB) is amplifying their marketing capabilities through a strategic partnership with Vividata, Canada’s premier provider of cross-media and consumer research solutions.

“More and more companies are recognizing the need for impartial, third-party sources of research across all media”, says Vividata President & CEO Pat Pellegrini, Ph.D. “Closer relationships with industry bodies like COMMB, ThinkTV and others is an important step in ensuring Vividata’s cross-media measurement is aligned with the needs of our members. We are excited to partner with COMMB to bring relevant data into the market and learn even more about OOH and DOOH’s measurement needs in Canada.”

COMMB has previously utilized segments of Vividata’s SCC Study of the Canadian Consumer to enrich its Audience Profiles (AP). However, the partnership is set to provide COMMB with enhanced access to comprehensive cross-media and consumer profiles through Vividata’s SCC/Digital releases, facilitating a deeper level of insights.

NOËL ET #DOOH w/ @Displayce_media

November 26th, 2023

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

The magic of Christmas is upon us and with it the hustle and bustle of shopping centers. For advertisers looking to capitalize on this crucial period, Displayce is offering a unique opportunity to display DOOH campaigns within the busiest malls and shopping centers thanks to its exclusive partnership with MyTraffic.

Displayce now provides its users with specific segments linked to events. Christmas is no exception.

The recent integration of MyTraffic, their trusted partner for location insights about malls and their catchment areas, has enabled Displayce to analyze malls footfall in France (and they analyzed the footfall of all French malls on the three weeks before Christmas in 2022 to highlight the busiest shopping centers for this year).

This calculation is based on an intelligent algorithm that carefully selects shopping centers with high shopper footfall. Of the 160 shopping centers identified, a total of 1,786 screens are made available to advertisers, all located in areas with an average 35% increase in the number of visitors from the general public.

This strategic concentration guarantees maximum visibility for DOOH campaigns over the Christmas period. This segment offers media agencies and advertisers the opportunity to take part in the excitement of Christmas and reach a wide range of potential consumers.

More information can be found here.

DISPLAYCE has over 40 experts, with offices in France, Spain, UK and the Netherlands. In July 2022, JCDecaux took a majority stake in the business and this alliance gives Displayce the means to accelerate its development.

At our AdTECH: OOH – Europe Conference Displayce’s Clémence Chemel will present ‘Debunking 2024 Programmatic DOOH challenges‘ where she will delve into the intricacies of Programmatic Digital Out-of-Home (pDOOH) advertising, aiming to debunk challenges and illuminate the path forward in 2024.

Tristan Cotterill

In a fun and cheeky collaboration, oOh!’s creative and innovation hub, POLY, has partnered with PHD and Lynx to launch an innovative marketing campaign celebrating Lynx Africa as the ‘Greatest of All Time’ in the world of men’s deodorant fragrances.

The artwork features giant 2D G.O.A.T. lettering extensions with gold metallic spangleys – in a first to market use of the combination. Sitting high above its billboard throne and extending the G.O.A.T. bling lettering beyond the traditional border of the sites creates an eye-capturing moment for audiences that makes LYNX Africa truly unmissable.

Alex Rog, strategy director, POLY, said: “This bespoke solution reflects LYNX’s confidence in sparking consumer imaginations and curiosity, creating intrigue with a G.O.A.T. use of drive-by formats.
