Programmatic DOOH is one of the fastest growing channels in Hong Kong and provides crucial opportunities for media buyers to plan and deliver contextualized, targeted and measurable campaigns at scale across premium DOOH inventory in the region.

The announcement follows Hivestack’s major expansion to its DOOH inventory supply in June 2021, delivering 210 million monthly impressions and, in turn, transforming how brands connect with audiences in OOH across Hong Kong. In addition to its premium DOOH supply within Hong Kong, Hivestack will also offer it’s new demand partners the unique opportunity for inside-out buys across China and the world at large, due to its market leading global supply.

Andy Chung, Managing Director, GroupM – Xaxis & INCA commented: “Apart from overlaying data & retargeting, one of the key benefits of programmatic DOOH for marketers is that we can programmatically deliver the digital screen ad based on preferred weather conditions across a bundle of digital outdoor billboards with CPM pricing model. The ad can be programmed to stop automatically when it is raining or under typhoon signals thereby achieving cost savings to marketers. We are pleased to recognize that Hivestack is the pioneer and specialist in this area, capable of advanced solutions & features. We look forward to working with Hivestack and bringing these benefits to our GroupM clients.”
