Q. What is Out-of-Home advertising?
Out-of-Home advertising (OOH) is advertising that exists out of the home – on roadsides, bus interiors and exteriors (also known as bus wraps), tram exteriors (also known as tram wraps), shopping centres, airports, train stations and office tower foyers.

Q. Why is advertising sometimes found on the inside of buildings (eg. shopping centres and train platforms) still classified as OOH advertising?
Advertising found on the inside of buildings is still classified as OOH because it is technically found outside of the home. Although it is housed inside a structure, it is outside of the home and therefore classified as OOH.
