We have long admired the quality, strength and depth of the Simon digital mall portfolio and are pleased to now be representing it. Adspace and Simon recognized the strategic benefit of combining networks to consolidate and create a singular digital offering to the advertising buying community that presents increased impressions delivered in a consistent format.
