Top OOH campaigns this festive season

The outdoor advertising industry has seen a busy festive period even though it was a slow start. The Maharashtra and Haryana state elections were something of a dampener in terms of corporate spending. Despite this, it was a pretty profitable period for the OOH industry with most agreeing that business was much better as compared to last year. Here we take a look at a few interesting outdoor campaigns carried out between September and now.
