OBM has pioneered zoning changes allowing spectacular signage in fifteen markets (and growing), including Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Denver and other high barrier-to-entry markets. OBM is a leader in smart city infrastructure, launching the IKE interactive kiosk platform in concert with cities across the United States.

Our lasered focus has allowed us to create value for three main constituencies – cities, real estate owners, and advertisers, where we are setting a new paradigm in what we call Landmark Advertising.
