2021 served as a year for accelerated growth for Playrcart, where through a series of strategic brand campaigns, the company was able to cement its position as a category leader for transactional advertising. Since January, Playrcart has partnered with AB InBev, Warners, Vodafone, Walgreens-Boots Alliance, Ford, Coty, L’Oreal and more to be announced. Playrcart seamlessly integrates its technology into any digital advertising campaign and enables instant transactions during the ad experience itself, which now extends to live social media streaming – a category expected to grow to $50 billion by 2023. Given the trajectory Playrcart is on, the company is well-equipped to scale on a global stage next year.
“We’re thrilled to have become pioneers in this space of digital advertising so quickly. We have had the opportunity to collaborate with renowned brands, and this latest partnership with Unilever is testament to our results,” adds Glen Dormieux, Founder, Playrcart. “Bringing Andrew on board as our Chief Revenue Officer will only enhance our capabilities as we extend our reach to include new clients, categories and territories next year.”
