We consider that the current situation of advertising in Spain in general responds to the reality of the deep economic crisis. During the very tough year 2009, all the media showed negative growth data, with the exception of online and mobile. This trend reflects that new media have established themselves as one more alternative and that, gradually, they capture a greater part of advertising and marketing budgets. The year 2009, according to IAB figures, resulted in a growth of 4.9% compared to an 11% drop in the rest of the media (Infoadex data).

However, we are definitely optimistic about the general growth of the online medium and we are confident that 2010 will close with growth data well above the previous year.
