Membership Categories

There are three categories of OMA membership: Media Display Members – Outdoor Media companies, Non-Media Display Members – Production and Installation companies and Asset Owners – Property Owners.

Media Display Members or Outdoor Media Companies advertise third-party* products across all categories in the OOH sector including: on buses, trams, taxis, pedestrian bridges, billboards and free-standing advertisement panels; on street furniture (eg. bus/tram shelters, public toilets, bicycle stations, telephone booths, kiosks) and in bus stations, railway stations, shopping centres, universities and airport precincts.

*Advertising in which the advertisement is not associated with the premises eg. a land or property owner allows an outdoor media company to display an advertisement for a third-party product.

Non-Media Display Members or Production and Installation companies include printers (including the supply of printing materials), installers, maintenance fabrication companies and other producers of billboard skins and vinyls used for OOH advertisements.

Asset Owners or Property Owners actually own the space upon which the OOH advertising stands. For example, Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) own the property (platforms and track-side billboards) that are located within train stations around the country.
