HONG KONG, Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited ("iClick") (NASDAQ: ICLK), a leading independent online marketing and data technology platform in China, partnered with Palazzo Versace Dubai (Palazzo Versace), one of Dubai's leading five-star fashion hotels, to develop a series of successful digital marketing campaigns targeting Chinese overseas travelers which has generated an 8,800% increase in traffic to their website. The heightened brand awareness has enabled Palazzo Versace to achieve a 300% year-over-year increase in business growth.

iClick has partnered with Palazzo Versace since 2017 continuing to help capture a bigger slice of the increasing number of high-spending Chinese travelers visiting Dubai who have an interest in luxury fashion branded hotels.

Through iAudience, iClick's proprietary marketing intelligence platform that has not only trade connections nurtured over a decade, but is also supported by knowledgeable global and local teams, Palazzo Versace can now reach their audience through China's most popular digital platforms.

Yan Lee, Chief Product Officer and Head of International at iClick, said, "iClick's in-depth understanding of Chinese travelers combined with our unrivaled technological ability and strength in executing digital campaigns ensured Palazzo Versace's marketing messages were delivered by the most effective omnichannel strategy." He added, "It was a pleasure to partner with Palazzo Versace and rewarding to see that through our support they were able to increase their brand awareness and grow their business in a market that is quite often a challenge for Western brands to penetrate successfully."

About Palazzo Versace Dubai

Reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, Palazzo Versace Dubai is a Neoclassical masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture. Featuring a striking entrance, high ceilings, landscaped gardens, and a range of well-crafted Italian furnishings, the hotel is truly symbolic of the Versace lifestyle.

Set in the heart of Jaddaf Waterfront, less than 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport and eight minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai, Palazzo Versace Dubai is conveniently located along the shores of the historic Dubai Creek.

Every single piece of furniture and fabric that adorns the hotel's 215 hotel rooms and suites, and 169 residences, is designed and tailor-made by Versace exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. Each of the hotel's 8 restaurants and bars is designed to have an al fresco terrace to reflect the heritage of Palazzos, where the internal court was the informal space to meet, dine and enjoy the weather. The three outdoor pools are decorated with mosaic tiles and surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The beautifully landscaped gardens and unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek and skyline make this luxury hotel an ideal venue for weddings and social events in Dubai. UAE developer ENSHAA in conjunction with Versace developed Palazzo Versace Dubai, a hotel and residential project, which opened in November 2015.
