Chelsea Flower Show – the Original Pop Up Event

With the warmer weather finally deciding to grace us with its presence, soon the original Pop Up event, the Chelsea Flower Show will be opening its doors once again this May.

When many people think of Pop Up Shops the image that immediately springs to mind is one of food stalls, craft sellers, artists and clothing companies – which are all very popular parts of the ever growing industry.  But have you ever thought of running your own Pop Up gardening event like the RHS Flower Show?

The Chelsea Flower show has been hosting a beautiful array of hundreds of show gardens in the grounds of the Chelsea Hospital every year since 1913 – that’s 100 years ago!  But this show is not just an event, it’s also big business.  There are hundreds of exhibitors and stalls sharing the grounds, selling flowers, plants and other gardening must haves.

Perhaps you are a keen gardener or are part of a group that needs a creative outlet.  If you have an idea for a Pop Up event that would capture the imagination of the public this could also be an excellent opportunity to start selling your wares as a business.

The Chelsea Flower Show began as a way for gardeners and landscapers to show what they can do.  Over the years it has grown into an event that we can all gain inspiration from, both in a creative way and an entrepreneurial one.

So if you have ever thought about organising your own Pop Up Shop but have not been able to decide what to do, then why not gain inspiration from other successful events like this one.  Once you have got your plans together head over to the Popupspace List a Requirement page and make your Pop Up event happen.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show runs from 21 – 25 May 2013.
