Blizzard Entertainment, IC Places, Inc. (otcqb:ICPA) is pleased announce it has retained Julie Thomas Knap as the Company’s Senior Product Placement and Strategic Partnerships Consultant.

In her role, Ms. Knap will negotiate and arrange for in-show paid sponsorships and product placement of major brands in IC Places shows across all distribution platforms. These platforms include on-line, television and private networks.

“This is the next step in our revenue growth plan. Due to a recent agreement, we now have a show distribution footprint in place which will yield over 200 million viewers a month. We currently monetize on-line shows through pre-roll and mid-roll advertisements. In-show product placement and sponsorships will run across all distribution platforms and will create a much larger revenue stream. In the process it will also build greater production value into all our shows,” said Steven Samblis, president of IC Places.
