We couldn’t be happier for signing this contract, that shows the trust BATI gives us (…) This decision is also the best prove of our methodology’s flexibility and of understanding the needs of the markets where we run gemiusAudience. The study is made both on extremly developed Occidental markets,  as the Danish one, and on emerging markets, like Moldavia. Personally, I’m looking forward the fast development of online advertising in Moldavia and a significant increase of market competitivity in region’s countries, that will surely lead to implementing a common measurement system
