Campaign Imminent: Missouri Division of Tourism names new AOR amid digital display spend increases

The Osborn & Barr its AOR to handle PR, advertising, digital and media planning. The agency will launch new creative work for MDT in 2020. O&B's additional clients include Pilgrim's, Bayer, Nutrien Ag Solutions, Morey's Piers, LinkedIn and Morton. This shift replaces H&L Partners, MDT's incumbent AOR since 2007.

According to iSpot, MDT hasn't allocated budget towards national TV spots since it spent $502,319 during Q1 2018. This amount shows a slight decline from the $618,834 spent in 2017, also all during Q1. When the upcoming campaign rolls out, it should include national TV content, since MDT has used this channel in the past.

During the past 12 months, Adbeat reports that MDT has spent $172,100 on digital display ads placed primarily natively via Nativo ($121,600) onto sites such as ($63,400),,, and This amount reflects a sharp increase of 3,147% from the $5,300 spent within the prior 12 months (Sept 2017-2018); we should see spend continue to increase with the upcoming ads.

Since both MDT and O&B are headquartered in MO, local sellers will likely have an advantage securing ad revenue. Inquire soon about MDT's spending plans for its upcoming campaign; offer digital, print, TV and OOH space, since tourism sites often use these channels. The new creative will likely try to reach millennials, the demographic most likely to travel.

Agency & martech readers - while reviews do often follow one another, I'd prospect elsewhere for now; MDT's work seems tied up.
