** Partnership will open up the anticipated 2.8 billion annual train travellers in China to more effective identification and targeting

HONG KONG, March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited (“iClick Interactive”) (NASDAQ:ICLK), a leading independent online marketing technology platform in China, today announced that it has entered into a data partnership agreement with MobiPromo, a leading WiFi marketing system in China, to enable audience identification and enhance targeting capabilities on MobiPromo system, which claims an audience reach of 2.8 billion train travellers every year across China. The partnership aims to unlock values in MobiPromo’s railway mobile inventory with iClick Interactive’s technology and data capabilities.

The new collaboration will empower MobiPromo’s railway mobile network that contains approximately 3 million in-station, in-cabin and in-shop WiFi hotspots across ten key provinces in China. iClick Interactive’s data-driven targeting solutions will provide marketers with stronger audience identification and activation capabilities in a lucrative market for a board range of brands.

Our data-driven audience identification and activation solutions enable overseas and domestic marketers, as well as agencies, reach to the right Chinese audience in a more precise and cost-effective manner when their target audiences are in railway stations and traveling on the train. The partnership will in return expand our audience network and strengthen our market-leading ability to connect international marketers with the best audience in China and advertise their brands.”

As of 2016, iClick Interactive already had the largest Chinese consumer data set among all independent online marketing technology companies in China, according to Frost and Sullivan, with approximately 633.5 million active profiled users in the 30 days as of September 30, 2017. The partnership further extends iClick Interactive’s presence in railway mobile marketing and provides more timely opportunities for marketers to reach consumers.

We also expect an enhanced user experience as train travellers receive more relevant marketing messages when they are connected to our in-station, in-cabin or in-shop WiFi hotspots.”

“In addition to adding value to the railway marketing ecosystem, the new partnership will open the door for overseas and domestic marketers and agencies to tap very effectively into the lucrative frequent business commuter market in China,” Hsieh added.
