The two-day Convention will be addressed by global OOH leaders, highly acclaimed brand marketers, planners, government officials, and accomplished creative professionals.
Keeping in view the next growth opportunities for OOH business, OAC 2016 will maintain laser focus on themes, such as, innovative ways to increase OOH share of advertising spends, use of cost-effective interactive technologies & sensors to deliver impactful OOH experiences, re-defining role of OOH in smart cities, what's next in the transit OOH media segment, etc.
Prakash Arts, one of the biggest OOH media owning firms in the southern region, has reinforced its much valued support to OAC by taking up the Associate Sponsorship of OAC 2016. What is truly noteworthy is that Prakash Arts has taken up this Sponsorship of OAC for the tenth year in a row.
Speaking about the firm's unalloyed support for the annual Convention, C D V Subbarao, CEO & Director of Prakash Arts, said, "OAC is a flagship event for the Indian OOH industry. The Convention brings media owners, specialist agencies, brand marketers, and various suppliers under a single roof to discuss and deliberate upon the factors that will augment the industry's business prospects. At each edition we have also had the opportunity to listen to global OOH experts. Knowledge is fundamental to doing business and OAC is a solid platform for knowledge sharing with respect to OOH business. Hence, we have extended our unequivocal support to this important event.â€
