OBOXMEDIA SIGNS EXCLUSIVE AGREEMENT WITH MASHABLE IN CANADA

Today Oboxmedia proudly announced an exclusive agreement with Mashable, the leading media company for the Connected Generation and the voice of digital culture, to help expand the publisher’s commercial opportunities with brand partners in Canada.

"We feel the team at Oboxmedia is a great addition as we further our commitment to international expansion,” said Adam Ostrow, Chief Strategy Officer of Mashable. “With their intimate knowledge of the audience and experience working with the Canadian market we’re confident that Oboxmedia has the high level of expertise we need to grow our business in the region."

Mashable, which currently reaches over 35 million unique visitors per month globally and over 18 million social followers, has been expanding its international presence both editorially and commercially, recently expanded to Australia and will soon be opening an office in the UK.

"Mashable and Oboxmedia have very similar DNA. Like us, they create content and broadcast from their platform. With approximately 7.5 million shares of content per month, Mashable appeals to influencers and those passionate about how the digital revolution is affecting the world around them. Mashable has become a must-read and with this new partnership, we will offer our advertising partners more relevant integrated branded content solutions," says Andy Querin, Senior Vice President Sales at Oboxmedia.
