Digital Billboards Command High Attention Levels

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE CIRCULATION 

Toronto, June 9, 2015

Six out of ten shoppers in major urban markets notice digital billboards according to a new study.

Vancouver shoppers pay the most attention with almost three quarters (75%) saying they notice digital billboards, compared to 62% in Toronto and 60% in Montreal. Attention levels are highest (79%) among urban adults age 35 – 49, a group that has an active lifestyle and spends more than half their day outside the home.

Attention levels are also high among smartphone owners (73%) providing opportunities for advertisers to interact with shoppers to provide offers and product/store information.

Shoppers who notice digital billboards are significantly more likely to be looking for new and innovative products than the average shopper. “This suggests that digital billboards can play a significant role in creating awareness and interest in new products,” said Rosanne Caron; President; OMAC.
