On August 20th and 21st, "2020 China Outdoor Advertising Forum" hosted by the China Advertising Association was successfully held in Taiyuan, Shanxi. This event was a large-scale industry forum with a wide range of influence in China's OOH advertising industry. It has been held for seven consecutive sessions since 2011.
The theme of this forum was " Turning the epidemic into an opportunity and seeking new development together", highlighting the concept of innovative development, optimization and integration, sharing the development results of China's OOH advertising, as well as an in-depth discussion of the development trends of China's OOH advertising industry in the post-epidemic era including the new needs of advertisers.
The forum included learning from around the world with WOO President Tom Goddard and Posterscope CEO Jim Liu connecting via video link. Tom Goddard shared how WOO had sought to better integrate with global peers and share mutual experiences through the pandemic. This included a series of group calls allowing members to exchange experiences and understand how the OOH market was returning through mobility research. In addition, Tom demonstrated how the global OOH industry had shown unity by coming together to demonstrate the power of OOH by hosting arguably the world’s largest DOOH Campaign #OurSecondChance.
The scale of the event was grand. With the guidance and support of government officials, nearly 1,000 people from outdoor advertising business units, research institutions, and market supervision departments from all over the country participated in the forum.
