Global’s DAX retains exclusive ad sales contract with SoundCloud

Global’s digital ad exchange DAX has retained its exclusive audio advertising contract with SoundCloud.

The partnership, originally signed in 2016, has also been expanded and will now see DAX selling integrated campaigns, as well as artist and track sponsorship, events and custom partnerships in the UK.

This is in addition to spot ads which have been available to advertisers via DAX for over six years.

Mark Halliday, Commercial Director – DAX, said: “SoundCloud’s audience is diverse, young, and highly engaged so I’m delighted to be able to offer fresh creative opportunities for brands to meaningfully connect with that vibrant community and interact with them in new ways.”

Jon Vick, Director, International Advertising Partnerships, SoundCloud, said: “DAX enables brands in the UK to reach our audience of diverse music fans easily all from one place. It’s ideal for us to continue building upon our successful partnership by expanding our offering for advertisers, so they can reach SoundCloud’s audience in new, more creative and customisable ways.”
