Hakuhodo DY Media Partners Inc. has strategically merged its Outdoor Media Division with its wholly-owned subsidiary Hakuhodo DY AD Station Inc. to create Hakuhodo DY Outdoor Inc., a new company that will focus on promoting the outdoor media business for the Hakuhodo DY Group. The new company will be established on April 1, 2017 and will begin new sales activities. (HDYMP is headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo and headed by President and CEO Hisao Omori.

With the ongoing development of digital media and digital devices, advertisers increasingly need integrated communication planning services that combine full-funnel marketing from awareness to behavior and purchasing.
Outdoor media is becoming more digitally driven, meaning that it now functions and has value as a form of digital media in addition to its former function and value as a means of inducing behavior and purchasing. Outdoor media can also be a form of interactive communication with sei-katsu-sha when it is linked to digital devices, making it an increasingly critical component of integrated communications planning.


Established within this business environment, Hakuhodo DY Outdoor will further develop Hakuhodo’s profound expertise in the outdoor media business, working with the various other companies of the Hakuhodo DY Group to take advantage of all forms of outdoor media and address the full range of sei-katsu-sha behavioral inducements—including those in the digital media and event promotion fields. The new company will also carry out integrated communications planning for advertisers with enhanced full-funnel marketing features. Finally, Hakuhodo DY Outdoor will accelerate the digital shift taking place within the outdoor media business in collaboration with tech companies, further deepening Hakuhodo’s partnerships with media companies and media owners.
