Bidstack CEO, James Draper spoke to BusinessCloud’s Alistair Hardaker to talk about the uptake of in-game advertising, the impact gaming has had on society and how advertisers’ perception of gaming is starting to change.


Bidstack’s proposition is ingeniously simple – if today’s games are realistic enough to simulate the billboards and pitch-side ads we see in real life, why not sell that space to advertisers?

The London-based firm, which itself began in real-life Out Of Home (OOH) advertising, has pivoted to native in-game ads at a time when many of the most popular games around are aiming to simulate the real world.
