Press Release: Active International Expands Beyond Media, Securing New Trading Partnerships
Lamb Creative Group, AXIS Integrated, Bruce Clay, Canada Sanitization Solutions and Render Media Among Their New Trading Partner Network
(Toronto, ON) April 21, 2021 – Active International, a media and asset solutions company and Canadian leader in Corporate Trade, is thrilled to be partnering with five premier Canadian companies to expand client services beyond media to include marketing and other business services.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to address emerging issues, like protecting employees or setting up digital sales platforms. Active International reached out to their extensive client base to find out how they could help. Clients identified several high-priority needs, including access to creative production services, public relations, email marketing and search engine optimization as well as options for acquiring personal protective equipment, as areas where they needed support.
In response, Active International secured new partnerships with some of Canada’s leading companies in their respective fields. Lamb Creative Group, AXIS Integrated, Bruce Clay, Canada Sanitization Solutions and Render Media are now providing these additional products and services that will transform assets into new forms of value for Active International’s clients.
“Rapidly changing marketplaces demand bold thinking and actions,” said Andrew Bulmer, President, Managing Director Canada, Active International. “Our goal is always to help our clients achieve more. Expanding our trading partnerships into media-adjacent areas adds value for all of our clients, giving them more options and access to use their credits.”
Active enables advertisers to use their unsold products to fund advertising campaigns, through a process known as Corporate Trade or Barter. Active purchases the unsold products at a higher value than they would be worth on the open market, but instead of paying for the products in cash, they pay in credits. The client then uses those credits to part-pay for media campaigns through Active’s Media Buying team. The result is better bottom line impact by recovering product write-downs, all while driving media efficiency. Clients can unlock and redirect more value to campaigns that focus on driving business growth.
"Active International is a global leader in corporate trade and we're thrilled to work alongside their talented team," said Nikki Lamb Tudico, President, Lamb Creative Group. "Together we will bring Active’s clients even more value by helping them accomplish their campaign goals by leveraging strategic marketing and PR executions.”
