Analysts agree that the future of advertising is in the digital format. We present a study that reveals the importance of digital signage.
The new platforms and technologies are part of the daily life of our society and should not be seen as competitors, but rather as a new opportunity to increase DOOH ( Digital Out of Home ), in different services and areas of activity.
In a world where more and more information circulates, capturing a customer’s attention has become an hard task. Companies in different areas of activity are looking for solutions and new alternatives in the new technologies, since the conventional ones begin to stop to follow the new habits of the modern consumers.
There begins to be a big buzz about the advertising industry. From year to year, studies show significant increases in expenses for digital advertising.
