TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Corbal Capital Corp.(TSX-V: ISD) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary iSIGN Media Corp. ("iSIGN" or "Company") has entered into a sponsorship agreement with Canada's SkiCross gold medal hopeful, Ashleigh McIvor. The Company joins sponsors Bell, Oakley and others to usher the debut of SkiCross at the 2010 Vancouver Games by financially supporting the country's best female SkiCross skier.
A Whistler, BC native, Ashleigh McIvor is currently ranked third overall by the International Ski Federation's points system after having finished in the finals in five of the last six races on the 2008/09 circuit. Included were two second place finishes and one recent first place finish in Japan.
"We're very proud to support Ashleigh and associate ourselves with SkiCross because she and her sport represent an exciting new dimension in competitive skiing, one that is attracting youthful audiences everywhere," said Alex Romanov, President and CEO at iSIGN Media. "The combination is much like our Company, focused on a new dimension in next generation advertising that is capitalizing on the popularity of mobile communications among young users."
Newly-listed iSIGN Media is positioning to become a leader in the burgeoning billion dollar interactive marketing ad market. The Company specializes in interactive proximity advertising using a highly customizable, scalable hardware and software solution that enables interactive messages to be sent directly to consumers' Bluetooth enabled handheld devices. It provides advertisers an attractive advertising alternative to TV, radio, magazines and newspapers.
"I'm so happy to be working with iSIGN Media, an innovator in mobile advertising," said Ashleigh McIvor. "Whether it's skiing or advertising, leading technology often provides the competitive edge. I trust that our connection will raise awareness for both SkiCross and iSIGN Media's technology."
"It's unusual for young companies, like ourselves, to be involved with the Winter Games but we firmly believe that more Canadian companies should support our amateur athletes and we are extremely fortunate to be associated with a rising star like Ashleigh," added Romanov.
