National pop up forum

Pop up spaceIndustry experts including Popupspace, We are Pop Up, The Empty Shops Network and StartUp Britain have teamed up to form a national Pop Up Forum. One of the Forum’s first campaigns is to urge administrators to allow them to turn empty Jessops and HMV stores into pop up shops for small businesses.

Properties occupied by companies in administration can sit empty for many months, and Forum members hope a lifting of red tape will allow schemes similar to PopUp Britain to flourish. The Richmond shop operated by PopUp Britain has seen 60 new businesses so far take up space over the last 5 months.
