What is a pop-up shop?

Also known as a pop-up store, or flash retailing. It is a trend of opening short-term sales spaces that most recently started in Los Angeles and now pop up all over the United States, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia. Temporary retail establishments date at least to the Vienna December market in 1298, and the European Christmas markets that followed. Seasonal farmer's markets, holiday fireworks stands, Halloween costume shops, consumer expos, and event-specific concessions are other examples of temporary retailing.

The Ritual Expo was one of the first iterations of the modern pop-up retail store. Not yet referred to as pop-up retail, the 1997 Los Angeles event was created by Patrick Courrielche and was later branded as a one-day "ultimate hipster mall.” The event quickly caught the eye of large brands that saw the potential of creating short-term experiences to promote their products to target audiences.

What is a pop-up event?

Pop-up events are temporary, unexpected events in unique spaces. They pop up and after a day, days, or weeks, they pop down. By definition, most events are temporary. It is the element of surprise in unexpected locations that distinguish pop-up events.
