Whatever your Washington DC outdoor advertising needs — Brooklyn Outdoor is ready to provide your organization with ideas, sales, and results.

Showcase Your Brand in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area

The Designated Market Area (DMA) for Washington DC encompasses counties in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia itself, for a total population of 6.7 million people. The urban area is the 8th largest in the country, with a population of 3.9 million people.

Brooklyn Outdoor’s coverage reaches nearly half of this upscale market in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in Virginia and Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties in Maryland. These areas form a perimeter around the District of Columbia itself — they’re where high-end consumers live, work, and play. As the most educated and affluent area in the country, it’s truly some of the most sought-after inventory in the United States.

Economic activity in the Washington DC DMA centers around the nation’s capital, which is home to two-thirds of recent area job growth and 25% of the DMA job market. Major employers include government-focused non-profit entities, professional associations, and think tanks, as well as commercial and technology firms.

The Washington DC DMA is home to large Hispanic, Asian, and African American communities. Since 2000, the Hispanic community has more than doubled to nearly 15% of the total DMA population. The region includes both the fifth largest Asian and African American communities in the United States. Median household income is more than $80,000.

Your next Washington DC campaign could reach a large and sought-after audience with the out-of-home expertise of Brooklyn Outdoor. With a fresh outlook on the industry and a constant drive for success, our sales team is ready to deliver.

Brooklyn Outdoor’s bus shelter advertising program in Washington DC is second to none and acts as billboard advertising would in any major DMA.  Due to the zoning in Fairfax County, VA, we offer the only static advertising format in this highly desired portion of the DMA.  Therefore, it is great for delivering exposure to residents and commuter traffic across the Washington DC DMA. These work well for commercial and industrial areas along major roads. Billboard coverage is available in the Fairfax, VA area.
