Welcoming smartclip LATAM into the ShowHeroes Group opens up a wide array of opportunities for all of our business partners and stakeholders. We’re proud to be able to offer our semantic matching technology, paired with the largest library of high-quality video content and access to global demand for premium video advertising inventory to the Latin American markets.

As there is a strong connection between the Latin American and the US market, ShowHeroes is opening its first offices in the US. The roll-out will be coordinated by the newly minted Country Manager US Joseph Lospalluto, former EVP Americas at Smart Adserver.
