“Our entry to the Middle East and Africa region is a big step for RTB House in expanding our global presence. Dubai is one of the most important tech hubs in the world and markets in nearby regions have huge potential for digital ad services. We’ll be able to offer to same level of sophisticated retargeting scenarios to advertisers looking to boost their ad spend ROI, just as we do for our clients in Europe, Asia and Latin America,” sums up Daniel Surmacz, Chief Operating Officer RTB House.

“We all know that today’s business situation in the region is demanding and this is why advertisers have to calculate their budget carefully, searching for products which will give them a possibility to talk to their audience at scale in 1:1 marketing message and predict their clients’ needs. Every dollar spent for promotion has to bring a high and stable return on investment and precisely targeted ads are a great solution for that. I decided to join the company because I observed RTB House activities in other countries and believe that its products along with a flexible pro-client approach and performance-based models of cooperation suit the local market needs just perfectly,” says Shady Francis, RTB House Business Development Director MEA.
