From the first hand-painted outdoor signages, we’ve come a long way since then in regards to technological advancements in the outdoor advertising industry. Through modern technology, billboards now have the ability to connect and interact with consumers through many creative ideas and strategies: payment systems, data trackers, edible billboards, real-time messages, augmented reality, virtual reality, QR technology, and so many more. These advancements have also paved the way for collaborative advertisements between outdoor and mobile advertising by allowing consumers to participate in billboard advertisements through their smartphones and gadgets One of the greatest advancements in the industry was the installment of LED screen billboards dating back to 2007.
