Overview

OAP is a firm that was built with a passion to improve the outdoor advertising standards in India. It was founded in 2002 by a bunch of young and enterprising outdoor professionals led by Abhijit Sengupta, with investments from Selvel One Ad Group. OAP is the AOR (Agency on Record) for media planning and buying for many leading companies and advertisers in India. Our clientele ranges from large out-of-home spenders to even medium spenders, but each one having recognizable and respected brands.

We don't believe in 'one size fits all' solutions. That is why we manage to create campaigns that are successful even with medium to small budgets, and have also succeeded in reaching to target groups who have low exposure in OOH. We dare to challenge the convention and place quality at the center of every piece of work we do.


OUTDOOR ADVERTISING MAVERICKS

The industry calls us Outdoor Mavericks more often than Outdoor Professionals! Probably because of our penchant to do things differently or invest absurd monies and time in developing Tools, Research, Systems and Training right from its inception! That's not the norm of Indian outdoor industry. But we did, because we wanted to do things differently.

Everyone says the OOH (Out Of Home) industry needs change, but few are willing to try.
