Adverty today announces a partnership with Smart as it seeks to widen access to its market-leading programmatic in-game inventory for advertisers globally.
Adverty AB (publ), the leading in-game platform for advertisers, agencies and game developers, is expanding its footprint with a global partnership with Smart; a leading independent ad tech platform. The goal of this integration is to provide advertisers with easy access to a large pool of thematic advertising inventory, enabling them to increase their reach and campaign performance while respecting the user experience.
Smart is a global advertising technology company, created in 2001, that offers ad serving, programmatic monetisation and buying solutions to both publishers and advertisers. This integration will increase Adverty’s programmatic reach for brands and advertisers looking to enter the increasingly influential world of gaming. Publishers will benefit from direct access to greater demand, allowing them to better leverage and optimise the monetisation of their in-game advertising formats.
The move strengthens Adverty’s mission to be the leading in-game advertising platform to associate with the very strongest SSPs – making it easier for ad buyers to access the latest in-game advertising inventory, at a time when the market is waking up to the critical importance of gaming within media.
Tobias Knutsson, CEO of Adverty, explains: “With this integration, we are adding a new, best-in-breed vertically integrated SSP to our programmatic infrastructure, further cementing our position in the market. With all the talk of the Metaverse in the market right now, we are on the front foot and delighted to offer the most compelling advertising inventory in this burgeoning media frontier. Furthermore, we are resolved to ensuring that every brand and every agency in every corner of the world can access our market-leading, innovative and non-intrusive in-game ad inventory.”
Pierce Cook-Anderson, Country Manager Northern Europe at Smart, adds: “Our advanced programmatic solution gives buyers first look at premium inventory, on every screen and for every format. This enables them to create personalised deals according to their communication strategy and campaign KPIs. We are well aware of the importance of the gaming environment and are delighted to partner with Adverty to widen access to its powerful gaming technology. We look forward to watching ground-breaking campaigns take shape within the gaming environment and have buyers explore, measure and leverage these formats whilst providing customers with a non-intrusive ad experience.”
