London is – and always will be – the go to place for retail inspiration. In this vibrant city all elements of exciting retail concepting and design come together. We make a combination of the stores you cannot miss, but also show you attractive places where food, lifestyle and social meeting come together. In other words: spaces that have become places.
In London you can see how food, lifestyle, art, fashion and shopping blend together. How every place can be united and more than the sum of its parts by strong branding and an umbrella-concept.
In a two-day trip we shower you with inspiration and give you a taste of everything modern retail has to offer.
The Dutch supermarket is one of the best in efficiency up to the last square centimeter. In a three day trip for international retailers we show you how the Dutch retailers are balancing the best store experience with operational excellence.
The Netherlands is known for having a high density of supermarkets per square kilometer, having one of the highest concentrations of supermarkets in the world. This means that retailers always have to step up their game to offer the most relevant shoppers experience in time, money and touch to their customers.
In a two-day trip we give you an competitive insight in modern retail.

"I was a participant in the inspirational trip organized by JDV in 2022, and I genuinely enjoyed it. Everything was well organized and taken care of. I was accompanied by my colleague Hans Ravensbergen. We were able to establish many new contacts and lay the groundwork for potential collaborations. The atmosphere within the group was very open and collegial. As a highlight, I would like to mention the visit to the cashierless stores of Amazon and Tesco. We will definitely be happy to go on another trip with the JDV team."
A successful store goes beyond being a beautiful store. Good design tells a story; it gives the brand a stage. It is the visual translation of the vision and – thanks to the right layout, materialisation, branding and communication – brings the brand to life.
We are an international creative retail agency grounded in the tradition of the Dutch Design School. Experimental, innovative and with a sense of humour. Together with leading retailers and local heroes we translate vision into successful commercial concepts worldwide. Concepts that celebrate diversity; that dare to be different. Concepts that challenge the status quo; that are future-proof and sustainable. Concepts that work. This is what we have been doing for over 35 years.
The ultimate retail experience is created when all touch points tell the larger brand story together. When all manifestations of a brand tell one consistent brand story, all the puzzle pieces fall into place. The circle is complete when the exterior of the store matches the interior.
