NEW YORK, July 29, 2020 – DPAA, the leading global trade marketing association connecting out-of-home media with the advertising community while moving the industry to digital, announced today Vertical Impression has joined the association.
Vertical Impression, operating out of Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, is Canada’s largest national residential elevator screen communication and advertising network. The company is making its name by using advanced AI-targeting technology to better serve property managers, residents and advertisers across Canada, with a particular focus on residential towers in major cities. The company recently announced its expansion into the Quebec market.
Barry Frey, DPAA President & CEO, said, “It’s easy to see why Vertical Impression is growing so rapidly across Canada. Their digital out-of-home network allows advertisers to run their out-of-home campaigns like they would a digital campaign, with anonymous ad targeting and unique campaign analytics. They also provide an opportunity for building owners to communicate with their residents, make money through an ad-revenue share, and improve the overall aesthetic of their elevators. We look forward to supporting their continued growth.”
Nicolette Leonardis, Vice President & Co-Founder of Vertical Impression, said, “We are eager to begin working with DPAA and its community of members in Canada and around the globe.
