Illuma is contextual advertising technology with an intelligent difference.
Illuma uses AI to learn from online browsing behaviour during live campaigns, identifying and reacting to the content consumption of your target audiences. Using these insights, Illuma expands your campaign into similar high-performing contexts instantly and dynamically, finding engaged new audiences at scale.
Illuma delivers relevance, reach and results, whatever your campaign goals.
