Over the years, signage has been, and still remains, one of the most important parts of any sponsorship portfolio. The signage space is rapidly changing, however. Things like digital and programmatic display ads are opening up new avenues for brands to reach consumers in new and innovative ways. 

Programmatic signage, in particular, has seen a rapid rise in recent years. According to eMarketer, programmatic accounted for 4% of US digital display ad spending back in 2010. In 2019, it is on track to account for 85% of US digital display ad spending, which estimates to roughly $60 billion. If you don’t know how it works at this point, your organization could get left behind.
