In the lead up to the event, Jessica Laditan, founder and director of Pop Up Africa has tips for budding ‘pop-uptrepreneurs’ below:

1) Find the ideal space- The space has a huge impact your pop up, be sure to consider, if is the space easily accessible? Does the space attract a decent footfall? Does the space match the look and feel of your product?

2) Do your research, are you sharing the space? Are the other brands worth popping up with?

3) Promote the Pop Up- Let people know that you’re going to be there, put in exclusive offers to encourage sales on the day/ during the duration of your pop up.

4) Have a strong team, recruit them, borrow them, beg them- It’s always best to have people that will be excited and passionate about representing and talking about your brand and products.

5) Network.

6) Keep your new followers updated- don’t forget that there’s life after the pop up, keep any new contacts updated with news on your products and events.
