- HopprTV wins Gold in the prestigious 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards for innovative advertising platform.
- The Stevies are one of the world’s most high profile and prestigious international business awards.
- High-profile award comes as HopprTV accelerates international expansion.
Australia, 13 July, 2020: Australian advertising technology startup Hoppr has won Gold in the Stevie Awards – widely considered the “Oscars” of the business world.
Hoppr won Gold for its HopprTV addressable TV platform in the category of Innovation in Technology Management, Planning & Implementation for the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.
HopprTV is changing the way TV advertising is delivered, offering advertisers and audiences a more tailored and interactive experience, while providing a zero-integration solution for network providers to access a new revenue stream.
HopprTV delivers targeted video and display advertising within the navigation environment rather than during a program so as to not disrupt the viewing experience, and offers a simplified way for businesses of any size to communicate with customers based on geo-location, such as a suburb or city, or demographics.
The Gold Stevie, announced on Monday, comes as Hoppr begins accelerating the international expansion of HopprTV, which has already linked up with strategic partners such as Technicolor, with access to millions of TV screens worldwide.
Hoppr CEO Cyril Daoud said the Gold Stevie for innovation is a strong endorsement of HopprTV’s potential to become the leading global platform for addressable TV advertising.
“Winning a Gold Stevie is a huge honor. It’s the kind of exposure that builds momentum, and comes at just the right time for us as we accelerate HopprTV’s efforts to expand internationally. I am immensely proud that Hoppr has been recognized with such a high-profile award,” he said.
Selected from thousands of entries by a panel of more than 100 international business executives, the Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world’s premier business prize.
The winners, including Hoppr, will be celebrated during a virtual (online) awards ceremony on Tuesday, September 22.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” this year’s edition of the Stevies will also celebrate the achievements of many companies – including Hoppr – which rose to the COVID-19 challenge.
The awards were disrupted by the pandemic, along with the operations of many of the companies that entered.
“This year’s winning nominations are testament to the resiliency and innovation of organizations in the region, many of which continue to succeed despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are delighted that the seventh edition of the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards attracted so many impressive nominations,” said Stevie Awards President Maggie Gallagher.
