Say hello to a new era in smart device advertising.

HUAWEI is excited to announce the next chapter for the HUAWEI Ads platform. In December, HUAWEI Ads became Petal Ads. Since 2017, they have worked closely with advertising, media and publishing partners to create an expansive ads ecosystem. Together, they have grown HUAWEI Ads into a vibrant marketplace with 4 billion daily ad requests and integrated over 360 000 global publishers. 

HUAWEI is proud of how the platform has grown and evolved to serve customers beyond HUAWEI devices. They feel now is the right time to reflect the growth of the ecosystem and begin a new era as Petal Ads. They would like to thank all their partners for their valuable support and look forward to growing the platform together in 2023.

Petal Ads: building a platform for growth and sustainability

Innovation is part of the DNA of all Petal products. Over the last few years, services such as Petal Search, Petal Maps and Petal Clip have brought more choice and open capabilities to the European market. HUAWEI will be taking all of those technical advances in AI-powered mobile search, location-based services and creative editing tools to further power the growth of the Petal Ads platform. 

While a ‘Petal’ can be seen as a strong symbol of growth, it is also a symbol of rejuvenation. They are committed to leading the way in sustainability in digital advertising. By leveraging their learnings in all-scenario products and experiences, they hope to work alongside their partners to build an ecosystem where revenue growth and sustainability go hand in hand.

2023 will see a new era for Petal Ads 

Today we are surrounded by change. Consumers are shifting the way they search for information online, with mobile virtual assistants playing an increasingly important role in how people and businesses connect. Advances in big data, AR and machine learning are giving advertisers powerful tools to engage their audiences across devices. Through all this innovation and change, protecting the safety and security of customers and partners remains their top priority. 

Like the petals of a flower, it is only when all sides of the advertising ecosystem come together in perfect harmony, that something special emerges. Their mission for Petal Ads, is to be a connector in a sea of possibility. By working together with media partners, publishers, advertisers, MMPs and Industry bodies, they will continue to bring innovative ad experiences to all smart device users around the world.
