Night of the acronyms: MBM, FCB Media and Spark PHD enjoy Beacons success

By , 2015-04-24 11:48:00

Over 900 ridiculously well-dressed media types took their seats at the Viaduct Events Centre last night for the 2015 edition of the Beacon Awards. Throughout the evening, each of the company tables gave partisan cheers when their co-workers stepped onto the stage to collect awards, serving as a reminder of the competitive banter that typifies the industry on a daily basis. And although most winners will no doubt feel a sense of pride—and the mild throb of a hangover—today, the most successful agencies on the night were MBM, FCB Media and Spark PHD.

In your space: TRA

By , 2015-04-24 10:16:28

TRA has always positioned itself as one of the cool kids of its sector and its previous High St office looked more like a trendy agency than a dowdy research company. It's taken that even further with its new office in Britomart, which developer Peter Cooper has pronounced "as the best fit out in the precinct”. And it's bringing a few new clients along with it after winning the Spark, Toyota and Te Wananga o Aotearoa research accounts.

Rise of the Machines: Acquire Online's Zane Furtado delves into programmatic ad buying

By , 2015-04-23 14:33:52

The buzz phrase 'programmatic ad buying' has been picking up momentum in recent months, and is now commonly heard in discussions on the state of modern media. And despite the frequency with which the word is used, it still carries enough uncertainty to motivate ad tech company Chango to recently run a sponsored web series on Adweek explaining key concepts to the US market. Similarly to the US, New Zealand is also coming to grips with programmatic ad buying. And to find out a bit more, StopPress recently chatted to Zane Furtado, the programmatic director at Acquire Online.

The digital glow set to brighten: iSite announces new giant digital screen

By , 2015-04-23 12:13:14

Outdoor digital advertising has had a slow roll out in Auckland due to council regulations about visual impact and safety, and this means that Auckland doesn't quite have the digital glow of New York's cityscape just yet. However, outdoor digital advertising is gaining momentum in the Super City, and the Auckland Council is showing a willingness to engage with out-of-home media owners on the incorporation of new digital sites. While outdoor advertising company APN was the first to unleash a digital billboard in Auckland city, other companies were soon to follow. And one of the latest is iSite, which has just announced a new billboard collection called ‘Aura’ that will feature two high profile sites in the heart of Newmarket in June, according to iSite Media chief executive Wayne Chapman.

By , 2015-04-23 10:16:11

The marketing world is keen on vending machine stunts, with stunts allowing them to accept everything from hugs to Canadian passports to piano playing to motionlessness (this trend was skewered nicely by Taxi).
