A UNITED INDUSTRY

The OMA currently has a total of 40 member companies representing approximately 80% of the Out of Home (OOH) industry in Australia.

The OMA’s Code of Ethics outlines voluntary principles that all OMA Members must adhere to, relating to working with advertisers and regulators and responsibilities towards the community and the environment.

OMA members are part of a local and global community, supporting one another individually and collectively as an industry. With a continuously growing share of the media pie, we work together to build the industry's profile through research and insights, improve and transform our offerings with new technology and innovation, and nurture a sustainable approach to our growth.

An application for membership requires the approval from the OMA's Board of Directors. OMA membership is divided into three categories:

MEDIA DISPLAY MEMBERSHIP

These companies advertise third-party* products across all categories in the OOH sector including airports, bicycle stations, billboards, buses, bus stations, cafes, doctors' surgeries, free-standing advertisement panels, light rail, medical centres, office buildings and lifts, pedestrian bridges, railway stations, shopping centres, street furniture (bus/tram shelters, public toilets, telephone booths and kiosks), trains, trams and universities.

*Advertising in which the advertisement is not associated with the premises eg. a land of property owner allows an OOH media company to display an advertisement for a third-party product.

NON-MEDIA DISPLAY MEMBERSHIP

These companies include printers (including the supply of printing materials), installers, maintenance fabrication companies and other producers of billboard skins and vinyls used for OOH advertisements.

ASSET OWNER MEMBERSHIP

These companies own the space on which the OOH advertising is displayed.

BENEFITS TO MEMBERS

Members form a vital network that is actively promoted, supported, and consulted by the OMA. Members also benefit from the lobbying and advocacy that the OMA conducts on their behalf on regulatory and assessment issues.
