Posterscope reboots to dentsu location services

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 30 As part of Dentsu International’s Accelerated Transformation Programme (ATP), dentsu International and dentsu South Africa have taken the decision to integrate the Posterscope brand into Amplifi and their media brands (Carat, Vizeum and iProspect).

Under dentsu location services we will continue to deliver world class, best technology driven solutions to our clients as well as focusing on growing our capabilities and talent across the region,” said Dawn Rowlands, CEO, dentsu SSA.

“I am very excited to be working closer than ever before with my colleagues across Africa. The landscape is ripe for meaningful growth and the doors are wide open to numerous opportunities in an evolving OOH landscape,” stated, Livia Brown, DLS Africa Lead.

“This is the perfect opportunity for OOH to showcase the power of location by tapping into the evolving landscape focusing on innovation and collaboration within the region, to continue fostering award winning work” stated Alex Muiruri DLS East Africa Lead.
