Campaign Breakfast Briefing: OOH 2022 – The Road Ahead
2020-21 was a tough time for the out-of-home (OOH) media industry, with lockdown compounded by budget cuts. But it is bouncing back on news of plummeting infection rates and the long-awaited opening of Expo 2020 Dubai, the greatest show on earth.
Campaign’s first in-person Breakfast Briefing since the start of the pandemic brought the industry together in person to network and to hear OOH experts discuss the future of the world’s oldest media.
Attendees joined us for coffee, conversation, debate and insight on October 25 at The Westin Mina Seyahi. To keep Campaign’s return to the real world safe and socially distanced, numbers will be limited. Attendance is free, but make sure you register early for the best chance of securing an invite.

09:20am: Panel 1: The Creative Challenge
OOH is a large-scale medium and can be the most impressive way to market a brand. But to make a billboard, lamppost or hoarding truly stand out takes a brand with a vision and a creative team that can translate it.
Our panel brings together brands and agencies to discuss creative planning and execution of engaging and effective outdoor campaigns. From strategy to execution, they examine how to make OOH gripping and moving at all levels of the sales and marketing funnel. They debate what makes vibrant creative stand out from the everyday, and address topical challenges such as marketing around Expo 2020 and the 2021 shopping season.
