Sometimes your marketing campaigns call for that extra visibility—a way to stand out from everyone else and differentiate your messaging through high impact creative. Fireplace units, using the exterior real estate on each side of the homepage, are an exciting way to enhance your campaign and step up your branding efforts.

The Fireplace is a customizable, full-page takeover that enables an advertiser to own all major above-the-fold ad space on a single page. The execution combines two side panel site skins with an expandable billboard.

The Billboard unit is a modified IAB Rising Star banner unit, specifically tailored for the IDG TechNetwork. The large 970×250 expanded canvas provides a truly large area to create engagement and interaction for brands. The Billboard can feature video, lead gen, social feeds, and other interactive features.
