All signs lead to #OOH2016 Neons Award


This quote perfectly sums up the importance of the Out of Home Awards.”A picture is better than a 1000 words” and at #OOH2016 Neons Award we will take a look at the bigger picture with some of the most eminent marketing and advertising gurus of India.



What’s the bigger picture you ask?

“The BIGGER Picture” refers to a keen understanding of where out of home fits into the “the big picture” of media. What the strengths are and where it is getting lost. Why brands are still apprehensive in adopting the medium. What the domains’ challenges are including still being unorganized, unaccountable and unsatisfactorily measurable. Accepting ground realities, moving around them to not only capture the brands attention but positioning out of home as the dominant media through ad campaigns. Further, while the world over the OOH medium embraces digital, in India it still is only 10% of the universe. In such a scenario isn’t OOH still ill equipped to embrace creatively the real power of the digital integration. What are the roadblocks? While the world is pegging a 2020 vision India OOH is still stuck 20 years back. To this increasingly complex big picture – lets look at putting solutions to work – it may require shifting focus from working in silos on out of home advertising, to looking at the essential role out of home can play in the broad advertising perspective.

Panel 1: Vision 2020 : Looking forward or stuck 20 years back

  1. Adopting Technology for enhanced customer experience integrating with digital media – Are we ready to invest first and reap later?
  2. Integrate hyper local media with other traditional media touch point for sustained awareness- ready to embrace the larger picture that fits into National campaigns while continuing the retail outreach?
  3. Innovation & Engagement are 2 sides of the same coin- is enough Innovation being done or merely properties are being engaged for revenues

Panel 2: Big Impact: Show me the money!

  1. Making an impact that can easily be mapped through analytics converting hesitant brands- are we ready to adopt a single currency and help it grow beyond its loop holes?
  2. Is OOH with its reach really a cost effective option for brands as compared to other media available ?
  3. Integrate Client expectations with planning and buying systems, utilize established ROI models, integrate with mobile and other technologies along with standardization & understanding new systems and services may offer a way forward – are we taking concrete steps to embrace these?

Some of the most experienced and innovative minds in the industry are part of our panel.Including the legendary marketer Mr.Anup Jain.
