"Global Ads will be a wonderful source of advertising intelligence, competitive monitoring, and creative inspiration for South Africa's leading advertisers and agencies."

"Increasingly globalised world"

Explains Ed Clarke, president of adfinitum which operates Global Ad Source, "In an increasingly globalised world, the ability of advertisers and agencies to stay on top of their competition and keep up to speed within their industry category is becoming increasingly important.

"With a few simple searches on the Global Ads portal, SA companies can easily and efficiently search crucial, global information to help them plan their next marketing campaign, react to competitive moves, or simply stay on top of latest developments in their industry."

Based in St. John's, Canada, adfinitum and Global Ad Source are reportedly the world's largest sources of advertising intelligence. adfinitum has partnered with several industry leaders for distribution of advertising content and has localised the Global Ad Source platform for the English, Chinese, South American, Spanish, South African and Japanese markets.
