DDG on Big Idea Design @ Epicca 2015


DDG’s own Gabriel Romero will be a featured speaker at Epicca 2015, the 12th conference of meeting industry professionals in shopping centers and malls of America. Representatives from more than 200 malls are expected to be on hand for Epicca, which will be held July 15-17 in Baru, Colombia.

Gabe, a Principal at DDG, will discuss the firm’s legacy in delivering inspired planning, architecture, interiors, graphics, and design solutions for more than four decades. His presentation will explore the “big idea” design and practical operations of numerous DDG projects that successfully integrate retail, office, hotel, and residential components, including such genre-defining industry trendsetters as National Harbor and Easton Town Center in the U.S., the Mall of Istanbul and Akasya in Turkey, Pondok Indah in Indonesia, and Dubai Festival City in UAE.

Gabe’s session will also focus on the way in which DDG brings together creative, unique individuals who come from 22 countries and speak 28 different languages to collaborate on nearly 2,200 projects in more than 55 countries. As a result, DDG has become renowned for its ingenuity, its creativity, and its professional passion in designing sustainable, evocative, and iconic energized environments.

Epicca is sponsored by Acecolombia, the Association of Shopping Centers of Colombia. Acecolombia integrates Colombia malls in search of development and institutional strengthening by organizing joint activities, strategic alliances, and continuous improvement programs that enrich the management experience of its members.
