NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CafeMedia, the leading digital advertising sales and technology company for more than 3,000 creators and independent publishers, and Kargo, the leader in mobile advertising, today announced a preferred partnership which brings Kargo’s full suite of exclusive, mobile-first ad technology to CafeMedia and AdThrive’s publishers.

As a preferred partner, CafeMedia and AdThrive publishers are able to directly integrate Kargo’s proprietary technology across their pages, seamlessly transforming standard ad slots into exclusive, engaging creative experiences at scale to maximize their revenue potential.

“We are always looking for unique and differentiated partners to help us connect our incredible publishers with advertisers via the best experience possible,” Shobha Doshi, Vice President, Programmatic, CafeMedia. “With Kargo’s best-in-class mobile technology, and a shared commitment to brand safety and high-quality content, this partnership is a perfect fit all around.”
