IPG Mediabrands Partnership with Adelaide Activates New Era in Media Quality Management

IPG Mediabrands, the media holding company within Interpublic Group announced today (April 25th, 2024) a new, global partnership with Adelaide, the leader in attention-based media quality measurement. The deal, brokered by performance marketing unit KINESSO, will provide all IPG Mediabrands agencies with access to Adelaide’s robust attention data across omnichannel ad supply.

Attention data is garnering increasing importance as a reliable indicator for media quality and supply management at a time when agencies and clients alike are seeking more transparency in an increasingly fragmented ecosystem. The collaboration will offer IPG Mediabrands access to new data to inform media planning, attention measurement for campaigns across a wide variety of channels including television, digital, social, in-platform custom bidding algorithms, and activation on Adelaide’s high-attention auction packages provided through leading SSPs. Not to mention, the use of Flight Control – Adelaide’s just-launched planning tool that helps advertisers identify the optimal levels of media quality to drive consistent and predictable campaign performance.

"We are excited to join forces with Adelaide,” said Justin Wroe, US CEO at IPG Mediabrands. “This partnership will bring more accountability to our clients’ campaigns at a time when they’re seeking more granular data and insights as they navigate an ever changing, fragmented landscape. Adelaide’s offering will advance our data & tech capabilities and shape performance like never before.”

“Our global partnership with IPG Mediabrands is the culmination of years of research, collaborative efforts, and a shared commitment to redefining media quality measurement and advertising effectiveness. It builds upon our work with agencies like Mediahub, who have been at the forefront of attention measurement, working with our teams to demonstrate the tangible impact of our AU metric on brand outcomes,” said Marc Guldimann, CEO of Adelaide. 

“Through this collaboration, IPG Mediabrands can integrate precise attention data into all areas of its practice, from measurement and planning to optimisation and activation, empowering its agencies to deliver superior outcomes across their diverse client portfolios.”
