Global media agency Assembly announces the launch of its European Retail Media Division to meet booming retail media demand in the region.
The launch comes with expanded products and capabilities to deliver end-to-end connected commerce solutions that help retail and direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands scale, automate and improve margins at all stages of the consumer journey. The retail media division, led by Ada Wachowska, will start with a team of 25 dedicated practitioners and clients across fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), luxury, retail, and consumer electronics verticals – brought into Assembly from fellow Stagwell Brand X Performance Network and e-commerce specialist agency Brand New Galaxy. The new division will further scale Assembly's award-winning global retail media expertise, operated in region across partners like Amazon, Bol.com, Sephora and Douglas.

"Being able to offer clients an integrated team of specialists who are experts across the European retail media landscape is perfect for clients who want to be able to look across channels, through advanced measurement, and use retail media as a connected part of a consumer journey."
With a robust retail portfolio and proven track record across the globe, Assembly's global business works to improve and scale digital performance for retail and DTC brands – boasting return-on-investment (ROI) increases upwards of 30% on same media spend when clients transition from another agency or in-house team to Assembly.

Equativ, an independent advertising monetisation platform, and first-id, a cross-publisher first-party identification solution, have entered into a partnership to help publishers and advertisers better monetise their audience in a post-cookie world.
The alternative to third-party cookies - In anticipation of this new advertising era that is energising the digital market, first-id and Equativ are taking action to offer an alternative to the world without third-party cookies.
Indeed, the collaboration between the two companies is based on common values: putting French technology and know-how to help publishers and advertisers to maximise their advertising revenues within the Open Web, and to address their audiences on already cookieless browsers, without depending on walled gardens.
Ensuring the effectiveness of targeted advertising - The unique ID generated by first-id is readable and usable in Equativ, both on the open auction part and on the part of the curated deal.
It allows the digital ecosystem that works with Equativ to:
Restore view of already inaccessible advertising inventories
Be able to address Internet users, on all browsers
Allow advertisers and agencies to do large-scale advertising targeting.
“The collaboration with first-id strengthens our agnostic positioning which sets us apart in the market in terms of advertising identity and helps us prepare publishers and advertisers now for the world without cookies.”, specifies Véronique Pican, managing director France at Equativ.
“We share with Equativ the desire to now offer effective alternatives without third-party cookies. Our common ambition is to keep the financing of the Open Web by offering the market the possibility of using effective targeting solutions that respect privacy”, comments David Folgueira, CEO and co-founder of first-id.
first-id is an identifier-based solution that aims to optimise the first-party data of its customers and facilitate their connection, in complete security, with their partners.
Equativ is the new single name for Smart Adserver, DynAdmic and LiquidM — three proven innovators in advertising technology. Our vertically integrated company provides brand and privacy-safe solutions that empower our clients to achieve maximum impact while respecting the rights of consumers. The union combines client expertise and engineering excellence to serve the interests of both the supply-side and demand-side with equal professionalism and technical sophistication.
