SPAIN/UK. ForwardKeys has announced the extension of its strategic partnership with PSI, the global provider of out-of-home (OOH) advertising solutions. The new agreement, building on an alliance which began in 2016, will see ForwardKeys’ travel data used to power PSI’s centralised travel media planning, buying and delivery system.

PSI’s Ben Milne says the strategic partnership can help to unlock the power of global datasets

London-headquartered PSI is the international division of Posterscope, part of a global network of 47 offices in 33 countries working in collaboration to deliver location-based marketing solutions for clients.

Explaining the rationale for the extended partnership with ForwardKeys, PSI International Managing Director Ben Milne said: “As one of the world’s largest investors of global travel media, we understand how to unlock the power of global datasets to discover truths and predictions that guide us in solving the problems that ultimately help our clients win customers and grow, through a better understanding of location and consumer movement patterns.”

He added: “We have long committed ourselves to help brands grow by tapping into the unique opportunity that diverse global travel audiences provide. And that doesn’t stop even with a pandemic at hand, quite the opposite in fact. It is now imperative that we can adapt our understanding in near real-time to help our clients navigate the volatility and uncertainty with maximum agility. Recovery is what we all are looking for at the moment.”

ForwardKeys Director of Business Development for Media Agencies & Finance Maria Rodrigues said: “At ForwardKeys, we see a real need for future reservation data and travel forecasts, delivered quickly in the here and now, so that clients and brands can move forward, plan and adapt to the volatile pace we currently work in.

ForwardKeys’ Maria Rodrigues highlighted PSI’s innovation in travel retail advertising

“Working with PSI, it’s interesting to see innovation at the forefront of travel retail advertising and the use of data for creative endeavours.”

PSI won the accolade of 2019 Best Agency at The Moodies awards, which recognise the best in airport and travel retail digital, social media & marketing.
