ODG Concludes the Sale of Their Point of Sale Material

December 2017

ODG, the award-winning retail and branding design consultancy headquartered in Dubai, announces the sale of its Hong Kong and Singapore based Point of Sale Material, Visual Merchandising and Packaging entities. This sale allows ODG to focus upon its core retail specializations of Branding, Design and Architecture. ODG operates its strategic and design consultancy to global brands, retailers, shopping malls, real estate developers and concession operators, with a strong focus upon retail and 'retailtainment' in travel retail, transport hubs and F&B operations. The move sees ODG continue to serve the Asian market, under its core service offering. Rupert Provest is ODG's representative in Asia, focused upon growing the existing project base to capture the increasing number of exciting opportunities across the region. Rupert has over 13 years' experience in the Asian retail real estate market, having represented several Savills regional offices in delivering projects for leading mall operators, developers and retailers. Regarding the sale, Martin Mirmand, ODG Co-Founder commented, "Three years ago we decided to strategically change our international organization, services and investment strategy by heavily capitalizing upon our ODG teams and services based in Dubai. By doing so we have doubled our billing over the last three years." He added, "Having multiple offices in a number of countries no longer made sense from a strategic perspective. Enhanced connectivity has made the world a smaller place and clients are looking for specialists and pure players. Dubai is the perfect hub to connect with all our global clients. " "We believe the future of retail requires a redefinition of the shopper journey by creating new experiences. Millennials are disrupting traditional purchase patterns in a significant way, relying upon handheld devices to manage all their consumer needs. ODG is responding to this need by delivering efficient, results oriented strategies and designs to ensure we capture and connect with the contemporary end consumer."
