Outdoor advertising technology leaders Adkom, Blip, and Broadsign today (May 11th, 2023) announced a technology collaboration that brings more than 2,000 large format, roadside digital billboards located in more than 190 markets to the Broadsign supply-side-platform (SSP).
Advertisers and media buying agencies around the world can now access the inventory via any of the demand-side-platforms (DSPs) integrated with the Broadsign SSP, including the Broadsign Ads DSP, while independent roadside media owners on the Adkom and Blip networks gain new programmatic revenue opportunities.
The integration, which includes Adkom and Blip’s mediation layer, unlocks US roadside inventory that may have previously been difficult to procure due to a fragmented media owner landscape, making it simple to purchase through a programmatic platform. At the same time, independent media owners on the Adkom and Blip networks can increase revenue potential through new and repeat exposure to brands transacting on DSPs integrated with Broadsign.
“We’re committed to working with brands, agencies, DSPs, and SSPs to ensure that we are adding as much value as possible at every point of the programmatic transaction. Optimising campaigns, providing real-time reporting, ensuring prompt creative approval, and offering service to our customers on both sides of the transaction is essential to this mission, and our work with Broadsign will allow us to build on that,” said Andy Gotshalk, vice president of programmatic for Adkom and Blip. “We’ve watched and admired Broadsign’s efforts in the programmatic DOOH space and are excited to work with them to expand programmatic access to Adkom and Blip network inventory, which will ultimately serve the greater OOH industry.”
“Programmatic DOOH is advancing at a rapid pace, and more advertisers and agencies embracing the channel want access to unique and targeted inventory via Adkom and Blip offerings,” explained John Dolan, global head of media sales & service, Broadsign. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Adkom and Blip to bring Broadsign-supported DSPs and media buyers a host of new roadside screens, as demand for this kind of inventory continues to surge.”
Broadsign empowers publishers, agencies, and brands to harness the power of out-of-home and connect with audiences across the globe. Powering over 425,000 signs along roadways and in airports, shopping malls, health clinics, transit systems and more, Broadsign is at the heart of people’s lives. The Broadsign platform helps publishers more efficiently manage their business operations while enabling brands and agencies to easily book OOH campaigns.
