ShowHeroes Group Acquires PlayAd Media Group

ShowHeroes Group welcomes the leading video solutions provider in the Nordics

ShowHeroes Group is excited to be continuing its journey of becoming Europe's leading provider of digital video solutions.

We have recently taken yet another growth step by acquiring PlayAd Media Group (PMG), the largest independent technology-driven digital media company in the Nordics, with headquarters in Stockholm. PlayAd, operating in the video sector since 2012, offers advertisers, publishers, and content providers a complete solution for online video.

Having recently been nominated for the IAB Sweden's MIXX Awards for "Best Advertising Environment," PlayAd has much to be proud of. The company was also recognized in The European Business Awards as a National Champion, not to mention received a gold medal in the category "Entrepreneur of the year." PlayAd is also the only media company in Sweden that has received the prestigious DI Gasellen and The Deloittes Fast 50 Award for three consecutive years.
