NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Allvoices, one of the world's largest citizen journalism sites, today announced its affiliation with ad:tech, the largest digital marketing show in the world. This collaboration leveraged specialized teams of Allvoices' contributors to create, curate and amplify highly relevant and compelling content for both ad:tech's San Francisco and New York events in 2012. The Allvoices contributors were able to share news and exclusive video interviews from each U.S. ad:tech event that engaged audiences at the show and worldwide, across all social media channels.
ad:tech decided to work with Allvoices to provide the global online advertising community, attendees and fans of the event with a blend of traditional long-form show coverage and engaging, real perspectives from a team of expert writers formed from Allvoices' global base of citizen journalists. Allvoices' coverage of ad:tech included pre-conference buzz, live event reports, videos, post-event wrap-ups and recaps.
"Allvoices provided a strong voice for both our San Francisco and New York conferences, not only in building interest before the events, but in reporting from the show floor and enabling those who couldn't attend to experience the excitement in a way they've never been able to before," said ad:tech's Marketing Director, Debbi Dougherty-Roth. "We have been thrilled with the traction the stories are seeing in social media and search marketing. Allvoices has become a perfect companion to our other publicity and social efforts for ad:tech. We hope to continue this great collaboration in 2013."
Powered by patent-pending technology that ensures quality content at scale, Allvoices' global network of 500,000 citizen journalists from 191 countries can be relied on for trusted, real-time coverage of time-sensitive events, breaking news and conferences. Brands seeking deeper engagement with audiences can also leverage Allvoices' search and social media-optimized platform to extend reach and uncover unique, relatable perspectives on news and events.
"ad:tech has been an ideal collaborator for our special event coverage program," said Aki Hashmi, senior vice president and general manager of PulsePoint's owned and operated media group. "News travels quickly and changes by the minute in the advertising and technology space, and ad:tech has become a hub for breaking news. Our contributors ensure that those stories are not only captured but also socialized among highly relevant audiences online."
