Indoor Billboard Advertising Association - IBAA

The Indoor Billboard Advertising Association (IBAA) is the first stop for advertising agencies, entrepreneurs and businesses looking for the most cost-effective, targeted way to advertise their products. Since 1998, the IBAA has served as the information clearinghouse, promotional arm, and regulatory agency for restroom advertising companies throughout the United States and Canada.

While politely termed "Indoor Advertising," our industry's primary focus is "Restroom Advertising" which captures the attention of the young and affluent 21-35 year old demographic.

Often referred to as "non-traditional" advertising, Restroom Advertising is widely recognized as an extremely targeted, well-received advertising medium, and reaches a captive audience while they engage in social settings at high trafficked locations such as restaurants, night clubs, sports bars, arenas and other venues. Indoor Advertising reaches consumers from an uncluttered, captive, eye-level vantage point, making it unavoidable.

IBAA Members have been leaders in utilizing a unique position to reach this captive audience while they are eating, drinking, exercising, or being entertained, thus making Indoor/Restroom Advertising one of the first "Social Media." Indoor Advertising allows advertisers to broadcast their message directly to a receptive targeted audience via gender, region, lifestyle, age, and other select demographics.

With additions of ancillary technology such as placed based mobile phone applications, to advances and implementation of digital technology, Indoor/Restroom Advertising continues to engage its audience.

The IBAA is dedicated to serving and promoting the common interests of our member companies, suppliers and clients of the industry, with an additional focus on continuing to improve standards, research metrics, ethical practices and ancillary offerings, and continuing to raise the profile for Indoor Advertising.

The Buzz Around the Water Cooler...

"Restroom advertising is naturally an efficient medium for targeting strictly male or female audiences." -Adweek

"The ads reach the audience most coveted by advertisers: 21-35 year olds who like to go out and spend money. Restroom ads also allow companies to target a gender with 100% accuracy."-Fortune
