Some great tips for success
PLAN FOR SUCCESS FROM THE BEGINNING
Make sure the design of your Pop-Up is relevant to your location, target market and products/services.
- Who will put it up?
- Take it down?
- How will you get it there?
- What rules/regulations do you need to be aware of?
- Can it be successfully reused without looking shabby?
BE FLEXIBLE AND DURABLE
Choose a Pop-Up design that can easily change with your brand, your target market, the locations you occupy and your products.
Choose components that have more of a positive impact on the environment than a negative one. Think about what your Pop-Up is made from, what will happen to it at the end of its lifecycle and how durable it is.
BE BRAND SPECIFIC
- Remember the old saying, “you never get a second chance for a first impression?”
- Does the design of your Pop-Up reflect your brand and how you want to be remembered?
- Be consistent in use of your logo, signage, style and colours.

IT MUSN’T LOOK LIKE A TEMPORARY STORE
There’s nothing worse than a Pop-Up that looks like a temporary setup. The consumer doesn’t care if you’re setting up shop for only a couple of months they expect the real deal whether it’s an event, brand activation or a concept store the experience and setup must wow them leaving a lasting impression.
Always remember shopping is not just about the transaction. It is about knowing and experiencing, a social activity built around meeting people, and physically discovering, touching and appreciating products!
