Clear Channel Outdoor adds its Europe inventory to programmatic DOOH SSP Place Exchange

Monday, October 23, 2023

The integration gives programmatic buyers direct access to Clear Channel’s array of premium digital out-of-home media in Europe’s largest markets, starting with the UK.

New York & London (October 23, 2023) – Place Exchange, the supply-side platform (SSP) for programmatic Out of Home (OOH) media, has enabled direct programmatic buying of Clear Channel’s expansive digital out-of-home (DOOH) inventory that spans the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Poland, via integration with Clear Channel LaunchPAD.

Clear Channel LaunchPAD is a pan-European advertising platform offering programmatic, automated, and direct buying channels, through supply-side platform (SSP) partners like Place Exchange. Clear Channel’s commitment to programmatic expansion is evident with its deployment of programmatic DOOH solutions in multiple markets, including the UK, France, Spain, and the Netherlands. LaunchPAD has the capacity to deliver over 2 billion programmatic impressions monthly.

Through Place Exchange, advertisers will seamlessly be able to discover and buy nearly 13,000 Clear Channel DOOH screens across multiple environments including roadside, supermarkets, malls, and transit, alongside other programmatic channels like online digital, mobile, and CTV – all within their preferred demand-side platforms (DSPs). The UK will be the first market to come online via the LaunchPAD integration.

“This partnership is just one example of our continued efforts to provide tremendous growth opportunities for programmatic DOOH across Europe as we seek to help advertisers connect with audiences in the heart of Europe’s largest markets,” said Dom Dunne, Programmatic Commercial Lead at Clear Channel Europe. “We look forward to building on our previous experience of working closely with Place Exchange in the US and Latin America. And through their partnerships with the world’s leading DSPs, we can continue to unlock more omnichannel marketing opportunities for advertisers across the continent.”
