Newmark Retail’s travel retail division is celebrating after achieving more than 25 new listings for its Belgian-based contemporary jewellery brand DPT Antwerp.
Previously known as Diamanti Per Tutti, the brand was founded in 2013 and today has 15 standalone boutiques across Antwerp, Lille, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai. It is additionally featured in over 100 jewellers.
It also has a presence across cruise ships, airlines and in airports. Since the brand embarked on its partnership with Newmarket Retail in 2021, it has grown its footprint in the channel to 55 locations.
New listings include Royal Caribbean Cruises, Virgin Voyages, Celebrity Cruises, MSC Cruises and Tui Cruises. Plans are in place with Abu Dhabi and Mauritius airports.
DPT Antwerp is targeting Asian and European travel retail markets for further expansion.
More broadly, the brand has grown from 28 points of sale in 2019 to 153 in 2023. It is targeting 170 by the end of the year.
DPT Antwerp recently celebrated its 10th anniversary with a branding refresh and new store concept at its Antwerp flagship.
It also recently achieved Responsible Jewellery Council, a global sustainability standard for jewellery and watches.
DPT Antwerp: TR an ‘important focus’
“Over the past two years, we have worked with DPT Antwerp to develop its presence globally and increase its footprint in key travel retail destinations where its customers shop, helping it to achieve its business goals,” said Simon Black, Executive Managing Director and Head of Travel Retail for Newmark Retail.
“The travel industry has been an important focus for retailers, given its sharp recovery post-pandemic.
“Brands like DPT Antwerp hugely benefit from the travel retail industry as it provides them with opportunities to create global visibility for their products and attract new customers from around the world.
“We will continue to support DPT Antwerp with its ambitious plans to secure more locations in the international travel retail market in the coming months.”
Edward Verté, CEO of DPT Antwerp, added: “With a fresh rebrand, new stores and using the knowledge from the Newmark Retail travel retail team, we are making our name known in new key markets.
“We look forward to working closely with Newmark Retail’s passionate team to create new ideas and open more locations across Europe, Asia and the Americas.”
DPT Antwerp will be exhibiting at the upcoming TFWA World Exhibition & Conference at Yellow Village stand H35.
Earlier this year, cruise retailer Harding+ extended its partnership with the brand with the introduction of a debut collection onboard P&O Cruises’ Iona.
