San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - March 7, 2023) - HempBox Vending, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hempacco Co, Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) ("Hempacco"), today announced signing a marketing service and equipment agreement with D-Consulting with the intent to run advertising campaigns on the top displays of ten self-service vending kiosks located nationwide. Advertising is one of the pillars of the HempBox Vending business model. To ensure success in this ambitious expansion plan, HempBox Vending has partnered with D-Consulting, a Southern California technology company dedicated to developing bicultural commercial platforms in the cloud.

Hempacco owns 600 smart vending kiosks that sell CBD and hemp consumer goods products. They have a large flat screen that acts as an advertising platform. D-Consulting will provide two powerful commercial cloud tools: D-Publicity allows advertisers and marketers to buy programmatic ads online. D-Promos lets users turn any screen into an on-site marketing tool and local advertisement. The intuitive Content Manager System (CMS) permits real-time monitoring of each network screen.

Hempacco and its parent company Green Globe International, Inc. (OTC: GGII), plan on using D-Consulting's cloud-based technology to:

  1. Run educational campaigns on hemp, CBD, and other cannabinoids to consumers in retail locations nationwide
  1. Run video advertising on HempBox kiosks and create revenue from the sale of advertising
  1. Run video advertising for Hempacco and GGII's private brands, including Green Star Labs' skincare products, The Real Stuff Hemp Smokables, Rick Ross' Hemp Hop Smokables and Wraps, Cheech & Chong Smokables and Wraps, and future Snoop Dogg hemp-derived products

"Our goal at D-Consulting is providing HempBox Vending audiovisual power to increase sales," said Jose Jimenez, CEO of D-Consulting. "With our technology, we are looking to revolutionize how marketers, especially local businesses around HempBox Vending kiosks, invest in In-Door Digital Out of Home Advertising."

"You can sit anywhere in the world, place an ad, pay for it, and see it in real-time in our vending machines through our new collaboration with D-Consulting," said Sandro Piancone, CEO of Hempacco. "You can purchase ads on one kiosk, a city, or the entire network."

Hemp and CBD vending machines are the retail future. They solve the single largest problem in the hemp and CBD retail industry: shoplifting. Retailers can place expensive products inside, and the machines act as a lock, as a shoplifting solution for stores 24/7. The concept is not new, but the solution is fantastic: intelligent self-service vending machines that hold, dispense, collect money, and provide security for consumer goods. And now, with the collaboration with D-Consulting, Hempacco turns the screens into a powerful marketing tool to endorse new product launches and promotions and to help increase sales and brand recognition. This unique collaboration helps further Hempacco's mission of Disrupting Tobacco's™ nearly one trillion-dollar industry.

"This pilot is a catalyst to our advertising program, and we're confident we can add value to our clients by providing education on our screens while they purchase great products, as well as allowing other businesses to advertise their products and services at locations with amazing foot traffic that can potentially increase their revenue," said Sergio Oliveros, CTO of HempBox Vending.
