Argentina joins the list of countries facing the evolution of an advertising sector that is beginning to experience strong growth through the network. And it is that according to the data of the Official Advertising Investment Report 2010, of the Argentine Association of Advertising Agencies (AAAP), digital advertising grows more than the traditional one in Argentina.

During this period (2010), Argentine companies invested about 132 million dollars in actions and digital advertising campaigns, a figure that, according to the IAB itself, could continue to increase by up to another 40% during this same year 2011.
