Access Point wins exclusive commercialisation contract with Derwent Estates
Access Point announces a new partnership with Derwent Estates, the Manchester based landlord responsible for Walkden Town Centre and 8 Retail Parks in the north of England. Going forward we will be exclusively responsible for commercialisation opportunities on their sites. This will include short term retail spaces for independent traders, national promotional campaigns for the likes of Sky and TalkTalk as well as exciting experiential events, starting with their ‘Summer of Sports’, just in time for the Rio Olympics.
“Derwent Estates and Access Point were both founded in 1997 and since then we’ve both been very busy building up our skills, portfolios and experience to get to the place we are now. We both felt like it was time to start taking commercialisation seriously and this partnership will help us both achieve our goals making Derwent Estates’ spaces community hubs for both local traders and national brands”
Diane Whalley – Head of Commercialisation at Access Point
Derwent Estates’ 8 Retail Parks provide particular opportunity for growth. Over the last few years Retail Parks have consistently outperformed the high street in terms of growth and footfall but have been underserved by promotional and experiential events. We are excited to find the next big thing for these spaces and already have some interesting ideas up our sleeves.
