In the spirit of giving, we have the inside scoop on the biggest audio trends around the globe this holiday season. Triton operates the world’s largest digital audio marketplace – where advertisers can access audiences on podcasts, live-streaming, and on-demand audio inventory. Our marketplace is buzzing worldwide with creative audio messaging sprinkled with the seasonal sounds of chimes, choirs, and Santa Claus in different languages and accents.  

It is a festive feast for the ears, with each ad serving a delightful blend of holiday cheer and marketing magic. Our open audio exchange makes it easier for marketers and agencies to plan, buy, and measure the impact of cross-platform audio advertising.  

According to an October study by the IAB and PWC US Podcast Advertising Revenue, the magic of the holidays is spreading everywhere, with brand awareness, branded content, and brand mentions on podcasts expected to soar to an impressive 61% in 2023. And if that is not enough to fill your sleigh with excitement, the Global Media Intelligence Report 2023 just revealed that, across the globe, users are tuning into music streaming and podcasts for up to an hour every day – in some regions, even more!
