Premium inventory from ad2one’s exclusive selection of market-leading premium brands now available programmatically
 
London, September 25th 2014 – ad2one, the UK’s leading digital sales house, has launched its new Premium Marketplace, powered by AppNexus, to offer buyers programmatic access to trusted premium inventory with engaging and highly relevant audiences.  Over fifty household brands including Currys, PC World, Jamie Oliver, Square Meal, Delia Online, LastMinute.com and Transport for London will feature digital inventory in the new marketplace.
 
The ad2one Premium Marketplace will offer benefits to publishers and agencies including:

·         Simple, easy integration for programmatic trading partners
·         Sophisticated floor rates across all levels (publisher, trading desk, advertisers, ad format)
·         Full support for all digital ad formats
·         A central Deals Centre where ad2one will package and communicate deals in real-time to media agency trading desks
 
Alongside the launch of Premium Marketplace, ad2one has also refreshed its other core sales service area to publishers and agencies. 
 
The traditional sales team offering, working directly with agencies and publishers, will now come under ad2one Direct, while ad2one Audience is the best way for agencies to engage with highly relevant audiences across the premium portfolio of brands, allowing buyers to reach consumers via audience demographics.
 
Grant Allaway, Group Managing Director, ad2one said: “We are hugely excited to be launching our Premium Marketplace. The time is right for a solution which allows our publishers to offer premium inventory to advertisers and agency partners looking to trade programmatically.  We have invested in a best-in-class tailored solution, powered by AppNexus, so our clients can maximise revenue from the increasing programmatic budgets of our agency partners.  We know the combination of our Premium Marketplace, alongside our team of experienced, creative and passionate sales experts, will offer every kind of advertising solution the market may be looking for.  We also believe this new service will be a key step in unlocking premium advertising revenues from programmatic trading.”
 
Andrew Barratt, Head of Online Marketing and Analytics, Dixons Carphone, said: “ad2one is vastly experienced at representing our digital media assets and we know we are in safe hands as we venture into the brave new world of programmatic on their Premium Marketplace.  Our revenue opportunity will increasingly come from a combination of smart creative sales solutions and a programmatic presence geared to offering the very best return for us and our advertisers.”
 
ad2one has also announced it will be a lead sponsor of this year’s ad:tech London which takes place at Olympia on October 21 – 22.  As part of its sponsorship it will be demoing the Premium Marketplace to visitors.  For more details on ad2one’s presence at this year’s event, visit: http://ad-techlondon.co.uk/.
