The International Pop-Up Alliance

by Katja Feldmeier

Around the world with pop-up stores. Go—PopUp is the co-founder of a new, international alliance of five European and Asian pop-up marketplaces.

The fantastic five: Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, Milano and Hong Kong

Go—PopUp was one of the initiators of the world’s first collaborative alliance in the pop-up retail sector. The alliance was joined by five European and Asian online marketplaces for pop-up stores and spaces. The common goal is to push agile retail at the international level and to promote the exchange between cities, brands and creative ideas for pop-up stores.

The pop-up market is growing fast, driven by online and offline retailers and brands of all sizes. The growth of the agile retail is at 12.3%, with sales at 2.3 billion pounds and approximately 26,000 employees in the sector in the UK alone (Britain’s pop-up retail economy 2015). According to market research conducted by the Cologne trade research institute (EHI) every second of the 1000 largest online retailers is already operating offline stores.

With the joint mission to promote the internationalization of the pop-up world, the five companies are forming the biggest network in the sector. The alliance provides a large number of spaces and opportunities for businesses and emerging brands to test and showcase their products or services at the international level.
