Hong Kong based power bank sharing service provider ChargeSpot have signed a partnership with iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited to display marketing messages on ChargeSpot machines.
The partnership allows ChargeSpot to offer a suite of data-driven advertising display solutions, meaning brands will be able to leverage ChargeSpot machines to produce highly tailored marketing messages, according to a press release from the company.
ChargeSpot have also been expanding in Hong Kong and Southeast Asian countries. The company said there are over 3,000 power bank rental stations and 100,000 users in the city and is planning to add 2,000 stations by the end of 2018.
As for Southeast Asia, after the company’s 150 million Series A+ funding round in September, the company plans to add up to 1,000 stations each in Thailand and in Malaysia by end of the year and have signed a strategic partnership with Gintell to strengthen its position in Malaysia.
“Through our partnership with shopping malls in Thailand and Gintell in Malaysia, we believe our on-the-go charging service will meet the needs of locals and tourists and bring them hassle-free experience. The response to our launch in Tokyo was overwhelmingly positive and reassured us of the reception we expect from the rest of Asia. By the end of 2018, we anticipate the number of our power bank rental stations across Asia will exceed 14,000,” says Davis Chan, co-founder of ChargeSpot.
ChargeSpot entered Tokyo in April 2018 with spots located at LAWSON convenience stores, TSUTAYA and Francfranc. The company aims to operate 7,000 power bank stations in Japan by end of the year.
It also plans to further extend its service internationally and aims to operate in more cities across Asia and North America by 2019, including Taiwan, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea, the US and Canada.
“The expansion marks an important milestone for us and as a Hong Kong-based startup, we are very proud to be expanding worldwide in such short period of time,” concluded Chan.
