Additionally, it has also recently won a contract to deliver its digital advertising technology in multiple kiosks inside one of England’s most prominent shopping centres.

The company was founded in 2018 and listed on Nasdaq this May. It targets the advertising and marketing sectors with its technology to support their digital outdoor advertising campaigns, which enables them to increase their ROI, deliver more accurate targeting, advanced reporting and detailed performance insights.  

Strengthening UK capabilities

Bulcher said of the London move: “We believe we can offer the media world a state-of-the art artificial intelligence machine learning computer vision proposition. With our new London office, we can more effectively tap into one of the world’s most dynamic, biggest and fastest growing advertising and digital communication markets.”

Alfi founder and CEO Dr Paul Pereira added: “This is a great time to further strengthen our UK capabilities. UK advertising spend is predicted to reach £27.7 billion this year, which is a rise of 18.2% on 2020. Furthermore, the digital out of home advertising market is estimated to grow by 43.7% in 2021, and a further 27.1% in 2022.”
