More than 300 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year in 18 categories including Customer Service Leader of the Year, Exporter of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, and Woman of the Year, among others. LeadBolt won “Technology Company of the Year – Australia”.

LeadBolt was honored for their technology advancements achieved this year, in particular introducing to the market two new mobile ad formats – Audio Ads with a gyroscopic shake feature, and Floating Ads that offer a game-like immersive interaction for mobile consumers. LeadBolt is the only platform where mobile developers can monetize their apps through every stage of app usage, creating the most user engagement potential within the app.
