DAC establishes the “DAC Niigata Office,” a trading desk specializing in programmatic ads

Tokyo, December 13, 2018 --- D.A.Consortium Inc. (DAC) is pleased to announce that it is setting up the DAC Niigata Office (Niigata Office), a trading desk specializing in programmatic ads. DAC will report on the company’s plans for expanding into Niigata on a courtesy visit to the Niigata Prefecture governor and the Niigata City mayor on Friday, December 14th.

The online advertising market has been growing steadily, and in 2017, exceeded 1.5 trillion yen, making up for about 24% of all advertising (*1). In particular, programmatic ads, such as search advertising and social media advertising found on SNS timelines, command 62% of online advertising in reflection of how they tend to fit well with the lifestyles of sei-katsu-sha (our term for consumers that encompasses all aspects of their lives) and their high advertising effectiveness.

In 2011, DAC began offering trading desk services and is now one of the nation’s largest networks. To reinforce its capabilities in programmatic ads and with the support of various academic institutions, Niigata Prefecture and Niigata City, DAC decided to establish this Niigata Office.

With this opening, DAC will work to recruit new graduates and mid-career professionals in Niigata Prefecture with the aim to hire 100 people. At the same time, DAC will utilize its many years of expertise in advertising to nurture ICT human resources.
