At the show, Westfield launched its newest Web3 offering, THE DROP AT WESTFIELD, which drives value by evolving how shoppers connect with brands in physical spaces
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#NFT—Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) launched a first-of-its-kind platform, THE DROP AT WESTFIELD, to highlight, engage and amplify brands’ Web3 initiatives on Westfield’s shoppable digital network across its U.S. centers and provide consumers with unique access to integrated retail offerings. THE DROP AT WESTFIELD debuted this week on the iconic 100-yard screen at the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, featuring digital artwork by five diverse female artists curated by Afrodet Zuri of The Board.
“We are excited to lean into the future with Web3, which will give our retail and brand partners a trusted physical environment to amplify their digital investments and drive even greater conversion,” said Loren Miller, SVP, US Media & Strategic Partnerships, URW. “Our entry into Web3 shows how brands can create integrated retail strategies that complement instead of compete with each other, and we’re delighted to continually innovate forward-thinking solutions for our partners. THE DROP AT WESTFIELD supports brands that are investing in compelling Web3 offerings by providing access to our digital media network to reach their target audiences in new and innovative ways.”
This inaugural collection of NFTs is titled Women In Web3: Her Dreams Realized and will be on display through July 17, 2022. All works can be purchased on Westfield’s digital media network, in partnership with Blockparty: a Web3 platform that empowers creators, brands and retailers to jumpstart their own NFT marketplace.
“Web3 has the potential to be the utopian equalizer that we have all been dreaming of. A shared space where we can all create, participate and elevate art and artists beyond gallery walls or gender/people bias. I am honored to be Westfield’s curatorial partner for their Web3 debut, ‘Her Dreams Realized’, showcasing a collective of premier talent and wildly creative imaginations from across the NFT space. These artists do more than create art; they inspire revolutions and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to display this message on Westfield’s iconic screens,” said Afrodet Zuri, Women In Web3 Curator.
