“I’m thrilled to be announcing our strategic partnership with Branded Cities,” said Jean-Christophe Conti, CEO, VIOOH. “With our most recent expansion and new hires in the U.S., Branded Cities’ iconic inventory nicely complements the inventory of our existing partners in this important market and I look forward to seeing the exciting DOOH campaigns to come from this partnership,” added Conti.

A recent eMarketer report* that looks at forecasted ad spend for the U.S. OOH industry shows the accelerated adoption of programmatic technology, predicting 12.5% of DOOH in the U.S. will be traded programmatically this year (previous forecasts were 10%) and 16.4% next year. This makes the programmatic DOOH market worth $271.5m in 2021 and $423.5m in 2022 – showing a huge opportunity for the DOOH industry in the U.S..

Earlier this year, VIOOH announced several hires in New York in newly created roles in this market, following the company’s launch in the U.S. last October.
