Orange Advertising launches first private Hispanic Ad Exchange

Powered by AppNexus, Orange Ad Market will change the way display advertising is being offered in the U.S. Hispanic Market

MIAMI - Orange Advertising announced today the launch of the Orange Ad Market in the U.S. The Orange Ad Market is the first and only ad exchange specifically targeting the Hispanic market and delivering premium quality inventory predominantly in Spanish.

Built on the AppNexus technology platform, the Orange Ad Market will allow agencies, DSPs and advertisers to avail themselves of the world’s leading real-time bidding (RTB) technology to access the best Hispanic inventory and target qualified U.S. audiences.

“This launch is truly groundbreaking. Never before has there been an ad exchange focused solely on the Hispanic market,” said Giuliano Stiglitz, CEO of Orange Advertising Americas. “Both publishers and advertisers will benefit from the vast amount of experience Orange brings overall in selling online inventory from some of the most important publishers in the world, and now with the added ability to reach this specific growing demographic, the exchange’s offering will be invaluable.”

With over 50 premium publishers in the U.S. and Latin America, 99% in Spanish, Orange Advertising is able to deliver a unique targeting opportunity to its partners.

“Through its use of the AppNexus platform, the Orange Ad Market will bring unparalleled quality, transparency and simplicity to advertisers and publishers hoping to reach the Spanish-speaking audience in the US,” said AppNexus President Michael Rubenstein. “This partnership will allow publishers to get the best value possible out of each impression and let advertisers reach qualified Hispanic audiences at scale.”

The Orange Ad Market has operated in Europe since 2010, and recently Orange announced that AppNexus will also serve as its European technology provider.
