What is a Pop Up Space?
For those unaware, a Pop Up Space is a short term retail or commercial lease. The lease can be for a few days or weeks. It is a great way to run a temporary brand campaign, try out a new location or just have an event.
“Finding, contracting or leasing retail spaces is complicated for tenants and landlords, decentralized and expensive – especially when it comes to short-term leases for pop-up stores, live communication and brand events in premium locations.” Go-Popup’s about us statement.
Who uses a Pop Up space?
The short leases are ideal for brands and boutiques who want to access the market in a particular way for a short time. Spaces can be a big busy corner in the centre of New York City or a small camper van / shipping container!
Pop up shops are especially popular in the fashion industry. Both big and small companies will create unique experiences for specific sales or communication events.
The Pop up space platform is a great way for companies and individuals to search across a city for their ideal space.
