We understand that consumers live and shop in the experience economy; they no longer look to buy just products and services, but seek something more authentic, memorable and shareable. Consumers seek experiences. Attracting new consumers or keeping existing ones engaged in today's ‘shop anytime’ culture takes us beyond price, convenience and place.
Our expertise coupled with Outform’s manufacturing heritage and global production capabilities will offer our clients truly comprehensive and unparalleled solutions. With enhanced reach and support, as one group we can empower global brands with greater control over their retail spaces, product launches, brand compliance, as well as retail distribution. This exciting collaboration between us and Outform bolsters the group’s existing capabilities and scalability whilst reinforcing plans for growth, with a vision to become the global leader in experience innovation.
