BackLite Media, the MENA region’s premier out-of-home advertising company and AdMobilize this week announced a partnership to provide cinema advertisers with audience analytics for OOH inventory.
Backlite Media and AdMobilize are working within BackLite’s cinema network, incorporating Novo cinemas in the UAE and Bahrain as well as Roxy Cinemas in the UAE, with over 135 screens in 15 cinemas, helping cinema advertisers gather greater real-time insights into their audience that reach far beyond ticket sales.
Bill Fordyce, CEO of BackLite Media, told us “We’re delighted to be partnering with AdMobilize to provide advertisers with audience analytics and meaningful data. In recent years we have seen the cinema-advertising sector stand out as a dynamic and innovative platform in today’s media market. With cinema offering that elusive proposition for some advertisers: a captive audience, we’re looking forward to the added value these insights will bring. The next step for cinema advertising will rely heavily on the insights advertisers can draw from its audiences – and their ability to refine their targeting and re-targeting campaigns”.
Through BackLite Intelligence, a recently formed department within BackLite Media, clients will be able to access real-time data through their own custom dashboard. The data includes viewership of each location by time of day and night, as well as transparent audience insights including key shopping behaviour and detailed demographic information.
Advertisers will now have the flexibility to book campaigns by number of views that can be targeted by both audience demographic and geography. In order to stay ahead of the game, BackLite will provide an abundance of high-quality data which will be fast and easy to access, as well as an expert analytic perspective on how to best utilise it.
AdMobilize’s CEO and Founder, Rodolfo Saccoman, said “We’re extremely proud of this partnership with one of the world’s most innovative OOH companies. Backlite has been able to solve a real problem for advertisers by providing this layer of transparency and efficiency for brands within the space. This is a real game-changer for cinema advertising, powered by creativity and technology as its core offerings.”
With the solutions in place, advertisers can expect to see validated audience performance reporting with their campaigns as Cinemas begin reopening throughout this summer.
