Visual Art takes a giant expansion leap on the German market, having signed a significant DOOH partnership agreement with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield encompassing 15 shopping centers. By exporting its Swedish DOOH success story, the company adds another important layer to its already established digital signage offering in Germany.
After having eliminated some of the German market’s established DOOH giants, Visual Art won the tender and look forward to a fruitful partnership.
– We are of course very honored and excited over the fact that Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, with whom we already have a successful Swedish partnership, entrusts us with a major market as Germany. It goes to show that our history of revolutionizing and disrupting the OOH-market is internationally valid. Introducing our DOOH concept in Germany is an important step in our international expansion, says Andreas Lind, CEO, Visual Art Group.
The agreement spans between 2019–2023 and encompasses 15 popular shopping centers in Berlin, Munich, Düsseldorf and other German cities. 400 DOOH-surfaces are to be established and it effectively means Visual Art will be responsible for a substantial part of the German DOOH-market.
– The untapped potential of digital media represents an opportunity throughout the shopping destinations managed by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, says Paul-Eric Perchaud, Director of Operations at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Germany. We are pleased to have found an innovative and creative partner for this challenge in Visual Art, with a strong track record of disrupting the Digital Out of Home market in the Nordics. We look forward to further implement our ambitious plans and ideas into our centers and thus to offer added value for our business partners through our digital network.
Visual Art is an established Digital Signage player in Germany with customers such as McDonald’s, Dodenhof, Dahler, Daniel Wellington and Valora. When the Swedish DOOH success concept is taken on export, experience from the Swedish market will be used to further position the company in Germany.
Visual Art operates Sweden’s largest digital network with exclusive rights in Sweden’s railway stations and extensive agreements with the largest property owners of shopping malls and gallerias, including Mall of Scandinavia, Täby Center and Nacka Forum, owned by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. The network is rapidly expanding in the Nordic countries and Germany, with surfaces on train stations, airports, shopping malls, streets and squares.
