Trading with pDOOH can be as simple as shopping online if you have the right partners who possess relevant planning and trading infrastructures. 

JCDecaux Cityscape, a subsidiary of JCDecaux SA, started the programmatic journey in September 2021 in Hong Kong. We simplified the pDOOH offerings to reduce advertisers’ technical constraints, and to uncover the mystery behind the process by making campaign planning and analytics transparent. Media buyers can now trade in near real-time with hourly impressions data through VIOOH, our exclusive supply-side platform (SSP), to broadcast advertising messages at the right place, at the right time, to the right audience with the right content. The buying process and ad scheduling are made through one online platform. Once parameters are set to define campaign outreach, the rest is automated.

Key numbers you need to know:

● 1 exclusive supply-side platform (SSP) partner - VIOOH
● 3 connected demand-side platforms (DSPs)- Hivestack, The Trade Desk and Yahoo!
● 7 million daily impressions
● 30% Bus Shelters at CBDs on Hong Kong Island are digitised


How data and technology facilitate pDOOH trading:
● Customise target audience by demographic, preferences, and behaviors
● Maximise flexibility to control when, where, to whom and which creative to be played
● Monitor and adjust campaign delivery in real-time for better results
● Ensure transparency to advertisers to see when and where the ad has been displayed
● Plan omnichannel strategies to retarget exposed pDOOH audience with other online ad formats
