O2 + Subway: Combining Traditional & Digital Media with Location Analytics

Mobsta will present case studies featuring O2 and Subway, which combined out-of-home adverts, digital audio and location data to drive store visits and demonstrate the overall campaign effect.

These complex and innovative campaigns combined location data with both tradition and digital media.
