3DWD and Vindico partner to deliver shopfront activation across the Middle East.

3DWD, the Netherlands-based vacancy management specialists, has partnered with Vindico to offer
shopping centre managers and developers access to 3DWD’s creative designs and specialist graphics
production capability.


With retail property and brand clients in over forty countries, 3DWD is a leader in designing
activation solutions for vacant shopfronts, specialising in three-dimensional graphics and animation
using its proprietary design and rendering technology.


“Vindico and 3DWD is the perfect partnership,” says Dion Pouw, 3DWD Founder and Managing
Director. “We share a common client base, and a common desire to support them through the the
current market and the growth in dormant retail space. Having been in the Middle East for over
twelve years, Vindico has the local relationships and team to support the delivery of our product
across the region.”


Vindico’s specialist retail design and delivery business has helped owners and occupiers of retail real
estate open over 10,000 shops and restaurants across four continents.


“What was once a property perspective in dealing with unlet units has become a customer centric
approach to delivering an engaging and agile activation profile,” comments Vindico Founding
Director, Peter Row. “3DWD are the best in the world at what they do and our partnership with
them is perfectly timed to offer the products and thinking that will support our clients as they set
about reinventing retail real estate.”


3DWD’s approach to designing three-dimensional hoarding and shopfront treatments emerged out
of an opportunity to show the potential of vacant spaces, with generic and branded store designs
customised to the location.


Paul Mathews, Vindico Chief Operating Officer explains: “The synergy between the 3DWD and
Vindico processes creates room for a more proactive, coordinated approach to managing the right
vacancy management solutions to be delivered in the right locations, and for the incredibly realistic
end eye-catching 3D graphics to be used to maximum effect.”
