Adverty and Verizon Media announce new deal to access innovative ad formats within gaming
BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Adverty AB (publ) today announced a new deal with global media and technology company Verizon Media, a division of Verizon Communications Inc., which houses a trusted media ecosystem of premium brands and industry-leading technology platforms. The integration of Adverty’s platform will enable Verizon Media’s wide range of advertisers and audiences to access Adverty’s seamless ad inventory at scale.
Adverty will connect to Verizon Media’s Sell-Side Platform (SSP), enabling its unique and unobtrusive ad offering to reach wider audiences within gameplay, to maximize brand exposure and publisher monetization.
As the leading in-game platform for advertisers, agencies and content creators, Adverty’s announcement means that Verizon Media’s clients and partners can access effective in-game advertising at scale, while Adverty itself will benefit from the growing numbers of global marketers looking to advertise within games through Verizon Media Ad Platforms: its unified Demand Side Platform (DSP) that allows advertisers to plan, buy and measure campaigns in premium content environments across every digital screen from mobile, to video, to Connected TV (CTV), to Digital Out of Home (DOOH) and Over the Top (OTT) through to leading games consoles and in-game advertising.
“We have been seeing strong demand for advertising opportunities within the gaming vertical. Still in its infancy, in-game advertising is set to see tremendous growth in the coming years and this development is a very important milestone in Adverty’s industry establishment”, says Niklas Bakos, CEO and founder at Adverty.
He adds: “Verizon Media also has its own DSP, making this a particularly exciting partnership and integration. There is increasing recognition that our in-play and in-menu formats are the ultimate in non-intrusive brand advertising within the burgeoning gaming industry.”
“Our mission is to help people stay informed and entertained, enabling them to communicate and transact, while creating new ways for advertisers and media partners to connect.” says Kri Carlet, VP International Sales at Verizon Media. “From XR experiences to advertising and content technology, Verizon Media is an incubator of innovation and is revolutionising the next generation of content creation and engagement. We’re looking forward to bringing Adverty’s quality, premium ad opportunities within gaming as a media channel for our customers. It’s a huge opportunity for brands to meet their audiences in a highly engaging and growing environment.”
