The internationally respected company will deliver unique dynamic campaigns through Firefly in all of its existing markets.

These dynamic content triggers allow brands to deliver messages drawing from the local environment at a level never seen before. 

“We’re delighted to provide yet another way to enhance the dimension of our messaging that personalizes weather updates with increased, relevance, accessibility and convenience for daily commuters,” explained AccuWeather Global Chief Revenue Officer Eric Danetz. “Firefly is an ideal partner, enabling us to track actionable insights that ultimately improve the quality of the user experience.” 

Thanks to partnerships with Supply Side Platform (SSP) Rubicon Project and Demand Side Platform (DSP) MediaMath, the platform is the first to offer full-funnel measurement and attribution solutions via its programmatic transactions.

To expand the accessibility of its specialized OOH methods, Firefly continues to expand moving its operating system to burgeoning rideshare markets of Chicago, Illinois and Dallas, Texas -- the third and fifth-largest media markets in the nation, respectively. These expansions further place Firefly in top markets, adding to its current activations in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City.
