Programmatic access to Canada-wide network expands WMG portfolio
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — February 15, 2018 — Western Media Group (WMG) one of Canada’s largest independent providers of digital advertising and marketing solutions, has expanded its portfolio of programmatic capabilities to include large format out-of-home across Canada.
Western Media Group is the first media marketing firm in Canada to offer programmatic access to a suite of online display, digital audio and a coast-to-coast network of large digital displays.
“We are pioneers in programmatic advertising and have years of experience in Out-of-Home. The addition of this national network of large format digital OOH inventory gives advertisers access to our expertise in both worlds” — David St Laurent, President of Western Media Group.
“It’s an ideal combination for brands and agencies looking to get the most out of their media.”
Western Media Group first entered the programmatic space in 2011. Through its technology partner Acuity ads, WMG offers mobile, video and display to advertisers in Western Canada. In the spring of 2016, WMG introduced programmatic audio to Canadian advertisers with the introduction of Triton Digital’s a2x audio exchange.
The next evolution of programmatic is Out-of-Home. Western Media Group has secured insertion capabilities on over 150 large format premium spectacular digital faces in the key markets of Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal as well as several other Canadian markets.
“The efficiencies of programmatic advertising are too significant to ignore. Adding Out-of-Home gives our clients access to the most advanced media buying platform in Canada” — Marc Brasset, Director of Digital Strategy at Western Media Group.
