Platform garners strong support from FAMO
Airport-Out-Of-Home (AOOH) is a new chapter in the world of advertising comprising of any visual advertising media found around airports, inside airports and in-flight. According to recent studies, almost 20 million passengers travel through Mumbai International Airport annually, 60% of which notice OOH advertisements placed around and within the airport, thus making it a highly-effective engagement spot for brands to market their products. To inform the advertising fraternity about the growing AOOH sector in India and explore new digital signage technologies to integrate into their AOOH ecosystem, the Federation of Airport Media Owners (FAMO), the apex body that brings together all Media Owner Organisations in the Airport Out-Of-Home (AOOH) space in India has extended its support to Media Expo Mumbai 2022.
Commenting on the partnership, SK Chaudhary, president, FAMO, stated, “FAMO’s endeavor to build industry-wide awareness of the airport media’s competitiveness and its diverse offerings will be greatly aided by Media Expo’s business platform that unites advertising professionals and signage manufacturers from all across India. We hope that this partnership will bring AOOH into greater limelight and benefit media owners through various signage advertising tools exhibited at the fair.”
