TORONTO--()--Evolve Media Corp., an integrated digital media company, announced today a global partnership to represent online advertising inventory for one of the fastest growing publishers, Vox Media, Inc., in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Based in Washington, D.C., Vox owns and operates sites in distinct vertical categories, including the recently launched gaming website Polygon, and renowned technology website, The Verge. Vox’s online advertising inventory will be represented under Evolve’s Gorilla Nation sales division.
“Given our footprint in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia — along with our history of producing best-in-class marketing programs — this partnership will allow us to elevate this offering to an even greater level.”
Debuting in late October to significant media praise, Polygon is a video game website with a mission to cover not only games, but the artists who make them and the fans who love them. It delivers fast, comprehensive news, in-depth feature stories and reviews that bridge the gap between criticism and buying advice.
The Verge, which already boasts significant traffic in Canada, marries the industry’s leading editorial team with the most advanced publishing platform to create the premier destination that intersects technology, science, art, and culture.
“As a leader in the digital publishing world, Vox Media’s mission is to empower the best digital storytelling talent through state-of-the-art technology and design,” said Kyle Ragsdale, VP of Business Affairs. “Through its three brands - SB Nation, The Verge, and Polygon - Vox Media is building the world’s most valuable audience, engaged with the world’s most valuable content, resulting in an equally powerful advertising proposition.”
“Vox Media’s reputation for publishing extremely high-quality content and outstanding media programs makes this a very exciting and synergistic partnership for us,” said Angela Kinsella, Senior Director of Business Development for Evolve Media Corp. “Given our footprint in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia — along with our history of producing best-in-class marketing programs — this partnership will allow us to elevate this offering to an even greater level.”
