VALLEY STREAM, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/24/09 -- Ace Marketing & Promotions, Inc. (OTCBB: AMKT) today announces that the Company has partnered with Macy's for the 83rd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® Balloon Inflation and Macy's Santaland® at Macy's Herald Square. Ace and Macy's will offer exclusive content to spectators at these two world-famous events delivered via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The interactive elements begin at Macy's Balloon Inflation the day before Thanksgiving, where over one million spectators gather to see the giant character balloons in the Parade come to life. Macy's Balloon Inflation takes place on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 and is open to the public from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. When spectators enter the inflation area at 79th Street and Columbus Avenue, they will receive fun facts and behind-the-scenes info on the giant balloons being inflated on 77th and 81st Streets. To receive this unique content, users of over 1,300 compatible mobile devices, including iPhone users, can enable their devices to receive special messages comprised of unique Parade content, only available at Macy's Parade Inflation.

For tech novices, the following instructions will help in setting up the mobile device to receive this special content. Mobile users should turn their Bluetooth device "On" and Enable their Bluetooth Visibility to either "Discoverable" or "Always Visible" in the settings menu on their particular device. When entering the Inflation site or when visiting Macy's Santaland visitors with enabled Bluetooth devices will receive the following message -- "Do you want to receive a FREE download from Macy's Inflation? or Do you want to receive a FREE download from Macy's Santaland." When a user "accepts" the message, the FREE download immediately begins and is stored in the user's media folder. Because there is no network signal required, other than a detectable Bluetooth or Wi-Fi device, the content is truly FREE to the spectator.

"We are pleased to return this year to partner with Macy's on these world class events," stated Matt Gaines, Chief Marketing Officer for Ace Marketing & Promotions Inc. "Our technology and our ultimate consumer continues to evolve only making it a better experience for everyone."

Michael Trepeta, President of Ace Marketing, commented, "The consumer experience is at the heart of everything we do, our continued partnership with Macy's is a testament to what we have accomplished this past year in understanding and developing content for the mobile consumer."

"We are pleased to partner with Ace Marketing again this year to offer our spectators unique content at our world-famous Macy's Parade Balloon Inflation and magical Santaland experience," said Amy Kule, group vice president of Macy's Events and Partnership Marketing. "We are excited to offer fantastic new ways to engage our spectators with fun and interesting content that is geared specifically to the mobile generation."
