When consumers step away from "connected experiences," the view into what they are doing is often lost. DOOH can be the canvas to recapture their attention and sustain the consumer journey as the
brand moves them to a dealership experience. In this session, Walton Isaacson's Managing Director of Digital Innovation, Albert Thompson, and Lexus' GM-Western Area, Marcus Williams, outline how DOOH
was leveraged during the December to Remember Sales event for 2022.
When your dough-wrapped ice cream brand challenges traditional taste, texture and even color profiles, it takes an all-screen approach to change minds. My/Mochi's fun and weird "Melt Your Mind Mouth"
campaign used some of the largest DOOH inventory in the US to show and tell the unique texture and emotional experience of this snack, even its invented "Purpinkle" brand color. As My/Mochi's Former
Managing Director and CMO, Russell Barnett, explains, the digital elements of its OOH and online strategy uncovered the potential for targeting dynamic situations, gaining massive off-line eye-share,
and driving both digital and retail activity.
Marketers aim to reach consumers who have resumed many of their pre-pandemic activities away from home.
OOH used to be a glorified real estate business where location and road-side visibility was the unique selling proposition. Programmatic then emerged as a transformative equalizer to the conversation.
With a complete "through-line" view into what people consume beyond their home, brands have started to leverage the future of OOH and its connection to broader programmatic ecosystem. Walton
Isaacson's Managing Director of Digital Innovation, Albert Thompson, illustrates how brands have executed within the programmatic marketplace to stitch together a "connected experience" of ad
exposure. Physical Proximity is the driver as the consumer moves from gas stations, retail stores, business offices, public transit, biking paths, and ridesharing - all through OOH.

How do you grow your brand in an extremely fragmented market? For GetYourGuide [GYG], it took consumer data, timing and making a spectacular splash. Already a market leader in Europe, the travel
booking site wanted to boost their brand awareness in the United States, so they turned to out-of-home media to help. In early 2021, with news that domestic travel in the U.S. was expected to open
before Europe and the U.K., they knew it was the optimal time to strike. After collecting data on American's newly acquired habits during lock down, GYG created specific messaging on how consumers
could experience those interests in real life. Zip-code lookalike technology determined GYG's target geographic areas for the OOH placements; which included billboards to maximize reach and transit
and place-based screens to drive website traffic. The campaign cut through the clutter, resulting in a 500% lift in unaided brand awareness, while driving over 42k online conversions - - exceeding
GYG's direct response goals.
Smaller ad categories continue to fuel the expansion, while two of the biggest -- auto and CPG -- experienced double-digit declines.

What do you do if your company is being described as "stodgy" by Millennials? How do you attract a younger audience without alienating your Gen X and successful Boomer clients? That's what Windermere
Real Estate was facing. With a nearly 50 year legacy and flashy brands like Zillow and Redfin invading their space, Windermere needed to step up their game. Easier said than done when your budget
is limited, and you're up against VC-backed and publicly traded companies with plenty of money to spend. So they needed to get creative and find a space where they could stand out. That space was
Spotify. The music platform, a favorite among Millennials, gave Windermere the space to create their own branded station with home-themed playlists that could appeal to all generations. Spotify
also provided branded QR codes to directly engage consumers with Windermere's station in an off-line environment, i.e. OOH, business cards and TV ads. Since launching their branded station,
Windermere has earned more than 100K monthly active users and seen an 18% increase in direct traffic to their website. Spotify now plays an integral role in Windermere's media strategy.
