Unique Media Services signed a mutual sales representation agreement with the Canadian based Virtual Billboard Network (VBN), a division of Toronto’s Gallop & Gallop Advertising Inc.

representation in key US markets.”

With this deal, VBN now claims direct access to nearly a half-billion banner ad opportunities for its advertisers.
