Combining experience, expertise and enthusiasm

Two strong brand names that have now really joined forces. CityD and WES were already linked through an equity relationship.
Today, all consultancy activities are bundled under the flag of CityD-WES NV.

About CityD

CityD has been around for more than 15 years and started as the pacesetter in the field of centre management, core reinforcement and retail policy. Today, in Belgium and Flanders, CityD focuses on the integral support and A-to-Z guidance of cities and municipalities, traders, developers and other market parties in the realisation of policy, investment and location decisions. From early research about strategic choices to bold action plans for urban functions or projects, that’s the journey CityD takes you on.

About WES

WES, also known as WES Research & Strategy, has been a fixture in the field of spatial-economic research, strategy development and market research for over 60 years. WES’s mission has remained the same throughout all these years: to help government organisations respond appropriately to changes and opportunities in the work and urban environment, based on up-to-date information, targeted studies and appropriate strategies and action plans. Starting off as a research department of the province of West Flanders, nowadays WES serves dozens of companies, cities and municipalities, knowledge institutions and social organisations in the Netherlands and abroad, with special attention to the fields of tourism, leisure, real estate and market strategy.
