The growth and functionality will allow us to offer clients a new way of buying DOOH effectively using data to target specific audiences at the right time. Dentsu will be collaborating closely as the lines of digital and OOH merge to ensure seamless campaigns integrate through online programmatic partners being a strategic part of its success and delivery of PrDOOH,” said Livia Brown, DLS Africa lead.
The reboot to DLS will ensure that the expertise and specialisation of OOH remains a critical service within Dentsu and aims to further disrupt the location marketing arena.
