Australia – Automotive brand MINI in Australia and New Zealand has extended its retail advertising technology partnership with local-based adtech Cartelux.

Through the renewed partnership, Cartelux will be responsible for allowing MINI dealers in the region to create and launch digital advertising campaigns in less than 60 seconds, making Australia and New Zealand the first markets in a global pilot for the BMW Group.

Additionally, Cartelux will be simplifying and automating ad creation, streamlining approvals needed, and expediting the media buying process, to save time and cost for the regional office, which is based in Melbourne, and the entire Dealer Network.

MINI ANZ’s Retail and Network Marketing Manager Victoria Abbass shared that Cartelux is enabling MINI to deliver cohesive, integrated digital campaigns in a way that was previously much more laborious.

“Working with Cartelux, all our dealers can now run vibrant digital advertising campaigns for local area marketing with minimal input and effort. This means the dealer marketing managers are free to focus on other priorities, delivering cost, and time efficiencies,” said Abbass.

Meanwhile, Patrick Doble, global general manager at Cartelux, said, “It’s exciting working with MINI on this platform and seeing how Victoria is extending capabilities to dealers that really innovate and benefit the company.”
