The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
Sociomantic last year launched a retargeting solution for airlines. This is a very hot space as airlines and other travel companies fine-tune their messaging and retargeting for optimum yields.
A source tells us that Jason Kelly has sold Sociomantic to Dunnhumby, a subsidiary of Tesco. The price, we’re told, is between $175 million and $200 million. We corresponded with a second industry source who confirmed the news.
A note of caution about this story: We heard this information from two industry sources who are not Dunnhumby or Sociomantic employees. Also, the deal isn’t final yet, and things sometimes fall apart. Our source says the news will break as early as this week.
