DENVER, Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Integer Group®, a leading global promotional, retail and shopper marketing agency, has joined forces with OutPromo, a leading promotions agency in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to form Integer\OutPromo. This partnership enhances Integer's international network within the increasingly important Brazilian market by adding a best-in-class agency, and in turn expands OutPromo's shopper marketing capabilities.
OutPromo was formed in 2000 when Capi Advertising and Promotions Outlook merged to create an agency with extensive experience in promotions, activation and events. Now, OutPromo is joining the Integer global network to become the premier shopper marketing agency in Brazil.
Retail sales in Brazil are up 56 percent in the last decade, according to Planet Retail, and the biggest retailers in Brazil are seeing a growth in grocery sales and ecommerce. In addition, Brazil is expected to contribute $23.35 billion to Latin America's $62.56 billion in ecommerce revenue this year, according to eMarketer.
"We are thrilled to welcome a successful and innovative agency like OutPromo to our global network. Brazil has been an important emerging market for several years, but with the attention received by hosting The FIFA World Cup and the upcoming Rio Olympics, the spotlight remains on Brazil and we are very committed to the growth in this market. This partnership allows us to fill an immediate demand in the marketplace by providing best in class service for existing and future clients," said Marc Ducnuigeen, President of International, The Integer Group.
"Shopper marketing is gaining relevance in the Brazilian market. By joining The Integer Group network, we are now truly a global shopper marketing agency that can provide services beyond promotions and lead the growth of this specific capability within Brazil," said Mauricio Gallian, CEO of OutPromo.
