Raj Kamble will speak on the theme ‘How creatives can transform OOH’
For some years now there has been a strong felt need to direct focused attention on the creative side of OOH advertising, as invariably OOH advertising creatives are adapted from creatives developed for other media, whereas there is immense scope for planning creatives for the varied OOH formats in the most compelling ways. Raj Kamble, Founder & Chief Creative Officer, Famous Innovations will be speaking on this subject in his address on ‘How creatives can transform OOH’ at the the 15th Outdoor Advertising Convention (OAC) that will be organised at the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel, Powai, Mumbai on July 26-27, 2019.
Some of the areas that will be touched upon are:
• How creatives can be planned for a medium that has so many different formats
• Takeaways from some of the most outstanding OOH campaigns launched globally
• How great creatives encourage brands think big for OOH
