We are the largest online marketplace in the world for short term retail and pop up shops. Simply put, our ethos is to connect amazing brands and great ideas to vacant retail units in the best cities in the world.
We have been very successful in this - last year we launched over 4,000 ideas with some of the biggest landlords such as TFL, The Shaftesbury estate and Grosvenor, But we mostly work with independent landlords such as yourself.
We have offices in London, NY and Paris - so most pop ups you see in central are done through Appear Here. We we are a demand driven business - at the moment, we have over 60,000 brands registered to the platform but don't have 60,000 spaces.
Say an indie fashion brand is looking for a space in your area - what they do is log into the platform a search for certain spaces. All the spaces that match their criteria will come up, just like searching for a hotel online. They can look through the photography, read the synopsis and choose the day they want to enter, and choose the day they want to vacate - our system then gives them an all inclusive gross price of that stay. Once the brand show interest in a property and send in a request, you can see exactly what the brand is, how long they want to stay, their social media profiles and their website, for a general look and feel of what they want to do in your space.
Once you receive a request, you have 2 options:
- Decline the request from the brand - which makes it go away
- Accept them and match- a bit like tinder/online dating. From there, you can set up a viewing and meet the brand face to face. - it’s that easy.
