Airwide’s Mobile Advertising Solution Takes Gold for Innovation at Inaugural Mobile Advertising and Marketing Awards
BURLINGTON, MA – 19 March, 2008 – Airwide® Solutions, the leading provider of next-generation mobile messaging and mobile internet infrastructure, applications and solutions, announced today that the company won the Gold Award in the category of ‘Innovation in Mobile Advertising’ at the inaugural Visiongain Mobile Advertising and Marketing Awards (MAMA’s).
The Innovation Award was the most hotly-contested category, drawing up to three times as many entries as the next closest category. Airwide won for the company’s Mobile Advertising solution that enables mobile operators to effectively capitalize on the growing demand for mobile marketing and advertising. The solution, which has already been deployed at Blyk, the pan-European mobile operator targeted for 16 to 24 year olds funded by advertising, enables operators to better promote their services and brand differentiation, as well as support multiple advertising models and interactive sales campaigns.
Kaj Hagros, Vice President of Market Development at Airwide Solutions said: “Winning an industry award of this nature is important validation of Airwide’s product direction and vision of enabling compelling new services such as mobile advertising that are based on proven mobile infrastructure; and examples such as this service that have been deployed as part of exciting new mobile advertising business models are proof that this is not just a vision, but is also being executed on today.”
“Clearly the mobile medium is on the move, and for Airwide to win the Gold Award for Innovation is a major milestone,” said Richard Walledge, Event Producer for the Visiongain MAMA’s. “Since mobile advertising is still in its infancy, new technologies and approaches to the category abound. It was Airwide’s capacity to apply technological innovation to solving some of the issues that are inhibiting the growth of mobile advertising, as well as the company’s success with real-world customers that made them stand out.”
Visiongain is one of the fastest growing and most innovative independent media companies in Europe. Based in London, UK, visiongain produces a host of business-2-business conferences, newsletters, management reports and e-zines focusing on the Telecoms, Pharmaceutical and Defence sectors.
