AMSTERDAM (September 2019) – A new and exciting partnership has begun between Zoomin and Forest Interactive. Zoomin will deliver video content (in English) to the digital experts at Forest Interactive in Kuala Lumpur and they will distribute it to their mobile network operators throughout Malaysia.
For the past thirteen years, Forest Interactive has been a trusted partner to 93 mobile operators, who are connected to 2.9 billion subscribers in 35 countries. They help bridge the gap between mobile subscribers, operators and content providers, just like Zoomin, by offering telco-driven platforms and solutions.
The contract with Forest Interactive marks Zoomin’s ‘debut’ in Malaysia and it’s a promising step into the huge South Asian market and its rapidly-growing demand for storytelling content.
Alvaro Yanguas, Content Sales Manager at Zoomin, said: “We’re very happy to have Forest Interactive on board. We think this could be the beginning of a great relationship, which will continue to grow in the future.”
Johary Mustapha, CEO of Forest Interactive, said: “We like Zoomin’s stories, they are filled with purpose. Through Forest Interactive, Zoomin gains access into the Malaysian market and its neighboring countries. We are able to utilize the Dutch company’s unique and inspiring videos and together we hope to bring a wide array of content to our subscribers and stakeholders.”
Zoomin is the leading digital media company for today’s most influential audience, Generation Z, producing and publishing hundreds of videos a month in 10 languages. We focus on inspiring, emotionally compelling and empowering content, both in digital short form and TV longform. Zoomin offers brands, advertisers and media agencies the opportunity to reach the “unreachables” with online advertising. Zoomin, with its headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in Beijing, Berlin and São Paulo, is part of the leading Swedish international digital entertainment company Modern Times Group.
