Bidstack Team Up with AtPlay in the Nordic Market

December 14, 2023

Bidstack is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with AtPlay, which will see them act as a reseller of Bidstack’s suite of in-game advertising products in the Nordic market.

The partnership will offer AtPlay access to 400+ video games and more than 100 million monthly active users across Bidstack’s inventory.

AtPlay launched in early 2023 as a dedicated media business that is entirely focused on gaming advertising. They connect brands with gamers through engaging marketing campaigns that utilise the best technology and games available across a variety of platforms. With expert knowledge of the gaming advertising landscape in the Nordics, AtPlay helps clients navigate the fragmented gaming marketplace to deliver effective campaigns in premium gaming titles.

The Nordic market is hugely influential in the gaming industry, with studios such as King, Mojang and EA Dice producing some of the world’s biggest titles, including the likes of Candy Crush, Minecraft and Battlefield. The video games market in the Nordics is expected to generate a revenue of $2,396.00m in 2023, while two out of three people in Scandinavia now play video games, making it an attractive proposition for advertisers looking to engage their target audience.

On partnering with Bidstack, Henrik Flateland, CEO and Founder at AtPlay, said, “When building our offering for the Nordics, Bidstack was number one on our shortlist of potential in-game partners. I’ve known them for years and have followed their success in this space, where they have established themselves as an industry leader.

“AtPlay helps brands to reach and connect with gamers through engaging marketing and has established a robust platform with the best technology and premium partners to deliver safe and effective campaigns in and around games.

“Our partnership with Bidstack is important to us, as it ensures that we can provide our clients in the Nordics with state-of-the-art in-game advertising.”

SVP of Bidstack Media, Natasha Whitfield-Niven added: “The Nordics is a really important market for us, and we’re delighted to be working alongside AtPlay to deliver engaging gaming campaigns across the region. We are continuing to expand our reseller network and are delighted to now have a stronger commercial footprint in the Nordic market.

“Having worked with Henrik previously, we are well aware of his passion and dedication when it comes to in-game advertising, and we are excited to enter this strategic partnership with him and AtPlay.”
