In-game advertising company IGA Worldwide, Wednesday announced the formation of a global specialist media group dedicated to advertising opportunities in the game space, using their technology enabled media network to help brands reach millions of consumers.

With its rapid expansion, IGA Worldwide will open new offices in Paris, Benelux, Los Angeles, and Tokyo in the coming months.
IGA Partners’ primary offering is the planning, serving and tracking of highly targeted and dynamically updateable advertising campaigns into their global network of live multi-platform (PC, console, handheld and mobile)video game titles via proprietary ad-serving technology.
