LIVE BOARD Leverages NTT DOCOMO's Carrier Roaming Data to Enable DOOH Media Planning, Using Inbound Tourists' Behavioral Analysis

Sep 13, 2023

LIVE BOARD Leverages NTT DOCOMO's Carrier Roaming Data to Enable DOOH Media Planning, Using Inbound Tourists' Behavioral Analysis - Visualizing High Inbound Visitor Dominance in Screen Rankings - LIVE BOARD, INC., an operator of a digital out-of-home (DOOH) ad network that achieves data-driven targeting and effectiveness verification, has successfully utilized NTT DOCOMO's carrier roaming data (roaming ID data) (*1) to analyze information on the location of inbound tourists, finding signs of recent recovery in foreign travelers to Japan (*2). In addition to the existing criteria for out-of-home (OOH) media planning, such as circulation data and reputation of the area concerned, LIVE BOARD has incorporated such analytical data into DOOH media planning (primary analysis) for advertisers, enabling more sophisticated and efficient ad delivery. This is an innovative technology both domestically and internationally. Roaming ID data refers to the overseas carrier data obtained when inbound tourists connect to NTT DOCOMO's network. By analyzing the data along with base station location information, it has become possible to understand the characteristics of inbound tourists, including "when," "where," and "which country's visitors" are present, within the DOOH screen of the LIVE BOARD marketplace, covering a total of 26,400 or more screens in 9 cities across Japan (in Hokkaido, Miyagi, Chiba, Saitama, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Aichi, Osaka, and Fukuoka prefectures). Download materials from: https://liveboard.co.jp/en/download Visualizing Inbound Tourist Trends and High Visitor Ratio Rankings on LIVE BOARD Screens Leveraging roaming ID data, LIVE BOARD has conducted a comprehensive analysis of inbound tourist data from among the 26,400 screens connected to its nationwide marketplace. This dataset enables the ranking of screens based on the highest percentage of visitors from each country, providing valuable insights for strategic planning. Image3: Analysis Visual 1st: Osaka AD VISION About LIVE BOARD, INC. LIVE BOARD is the first company in Japan to achieve impression-based ad delivery in OOH. It deploys advertisement delivery and billing systems in accordance with actual conditions that are based on the estimated number of viewers "at that time, in that place, and for that specific ad," even during the COVID-19 pandemic, when people's movement patterns are prone to change. In addition, by combining big data from Japan's largest mobile carrier with its own network, which includes a wide range of digital OOH across Japan, including outdoor, indoor, train, and station OOH ads, LIVE BOARD has been able to deliver personalized ads, such as targeting by gender and age, that was not possible with traditional OOH. Company name: LIVE BOARD, INC Business details: DOOH advertising distribution platform management, DOOH advertising media development, DOOH advertising space sales
