Home Seedtag is ready to push the boundaries of CTV advertising with Beachfront acquisition

In the dynamic world of advertising, innovation and strategic growth are essential to maintaining a competitive edge. Seedtag has made a bold move to conquer the CTV landscape by acquiring Beachfront, a premier sell-side ad platform built for Connected TV (CTV) with proprietary technology offering direct premium supply.

This acquisition comes as no surprise, as it aligns seamlessly with Seedtag’s recent launch of Contextual TV, a groundbreaking solution that harnesses AI-based network dynamics, rich insights, and bespoke creative strategies to elevate CTV advertising.

According to eMarketer, CTV ad spend is projected to exceed $30 billion in 2024, marking a 22.4% increase from 2023. This growth provides the ideal backdrop for Seedtag to advance its mission of delivering contextual advertising solutions and becoming the ultimate omnichannel partner for brands and publishers.

By integrating Beachfront’s cutting-edge technology and expertise in CTV advertising into our leading contextual solutions, powered by our contextual AI Liz, Seedtag is ready to deliver even more relevant and engaging campaigns to audiences as they enjoy their favorite content while connecting with the brands they love.
