LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SocialVibe, a next-gen digital ad-tech company that powers engagement advertising for some of the world’s top brands, announced today that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnHollywood 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnHollywood 100 signifies SocialVibe’s leadership among its peers and recognizes the company’s game-changing approach to disrupting the digital media environment and entertainment landscape. SocialVibe was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and international industry experts based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“To be selected by AlwaysOn for its OnHollywood 100 is an honor for SocialVibe, considering the breadth and depth of nominees and rigor of the award criteria,” said SocialVibe’s Chief Executive Officer Todd Tappin. “The selection reflects our leadership in engagement marketing and providing value to agencies, brands and publishers through a better consumer experience in digital media.”
SocialVibe and the OnHollywood 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s sixth annual OnHollywood event October 29-30, 2012 at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, CA. This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant trends impacting digital entertainment. Disruptive technology is forcing big changes in digital media and Hollywood: new contracts, new genres, new stars. As the behemoth business steps into the digital era, industry execs will be paying even closer attention to the global Silicon Valley—especially the startups that are rewriting the rules and creating the tools for the digital entertainment age.
“This year’s OnHollywood 100 represents an explosive drive toward device-independent consumer-focused entertainment. The digital entertainment pioneers of the 1990s have paved the way for a sophisticated group of entertainment producers, who are harnessing the power of social, mobile, and the Internet to give consumers exactly what they want, when they want it,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “Now, the entire entertainment world has broken free of the establishment and is bringing quality television, film, and music to a global audience that’s on the move and hungry for its next innovation.”
The OnHollywood 100 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and entertainment industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
“We’re excited that AlwaysOn has chosen us as an OnHollywood 100 winner for 2012,” said John Capano, chief marketing officer of SocialVibe. “Being recognized as a company that is disrupting the digital marketplace with an innovative and results-driven solution for agencies and brands is a core part of our mission at SocialVibe.”
