OAAA Cancels Conference and Awards

13 September 2001

The annual conference of the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, which gathered Tuesday in New York, has been cancelled in light of this week’s events.

The OAAA has also postponed the announcement of its OBIE awards for outstanding outdoor campaigns, due to be held last night.

In addition, the association has asked members to post the message “In God We Trust. United We Stand” on their out-of-home displays. “The outdoor industry can make an enormous difference by disseminating this message of hope,” said the OAAA.
