Flycast Communications and Adsmart, soon to both be part of Engage Technologies under CMGI‘s (CMGI) consolidation strategy, on Wednesday said they planned to team to offer advertisers opportunities to make buys for special events like the Grammy’s, Academy Awards, Tax Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

The initiative is the first joint enterprise between the two companies, and it is, perhaps, a harbinger of what we will see when they are both brought under the Engage umbrella.

“We look forward to continued collaboration as we both become fully integrated,” says Mark Martiak, vice president, Northeast media sales at Flycast (FCST).

The companies came up with the idea after Flycast had success with a holiday shopping media category in 1999. The huge amount of advertising done over the holiday season, as well as that done for Valentine’s Day, shows Internet advertising evolving toward big surges around events.
