About ATG Media

ATG Media is the global provider of live webcast and timed auctions with offices in London and Seattle. As pioneers in the industry, ATG Media saw an opportunity to bring together buyers and sellers online, launching in 2001 and in 2007. With the acquisition of BidSpotter in 2013 the company has continued with its strategy of rapid growth. The business has further plans to grow through potential acquisitions, organically, as more categories are added at auction, and as they develop white label auction platforms for auctioneers not currently using their brands.

In June 2014 ECI partnered with ATG Media and existing investor Mobeus Equity Partners to take the business forward. The investment will enable the company to continue with the international acquisitive expansion strategy pursued under Mobeus's tenure.
