Advertising: offensives in “retail media”

This segment of the advertising market consists, for e-merchants, in monetizing their online advertising space and their customer data. It enjoys strong growth. In recent months, Havas and Publicis have accelerated their positioning in this area. Thus Havas launched “Ad to Basket”, an entity dedicated to “retail media”. As for Publicis, it took over CitrusAd, an Australian adtech focused on “retail media” and mainly established in the United States, for more than 100 million dollars. This operation allows Publicis to refine its knowledge of commercial sites, which gives credibility to its expertise with its customers. . At last , Criteo, the French group focused on online advertising launched in 2005, has also embarked on the consolidation of the segment by taking over an English firm for 380 million dollars.
