New feature: Space alerts

You told us how important it is to hear about new spaces as soon as they list so we’ve built Space Alerts.  It’s simple – you set up an alert and tell us what type of spaces you are looking for. Then the moment any new space lists which matches your criteria, you’ll receive an email allowing you to view it online and get in touch with the landlord direct to start discussing a booking.

It’s easy to set up. Just search for space as normal and click ‘create space alert’ on our search results.

Give your alert a name, adjust search criteria if you need to, then hit ‘create alert. Whether you’re looking for a Shop Share in Shoreditch or a Boutique in Birmingham, you can save one or several different searches.

Then it’s just a matter of time until those spaces list – we have new spaces signing up with us every single day. Then you can go about planning your pop up, safe in the knowledge we’ll tell you about suitable spaces the minute they become available. You can edit or delete your alerts at any time in the ‘My Alerts’ menu in the top right of every page.

Pop Up Shop Collaboration Feature: Sharing

Today we are very pleased to announce new features for a concept we find invaluable to the pop-up community: Sharing

Over the past few months we have heard from our incredible community about their experiences finding new pop-up space. As a result, we have built new sharing tools into We Are Pop Up.

Sharing A Space

Often times sharing a rented space or bringing in a collaborator for a new space is a great opportunity, but difficult to manage. Now anyone can extend a property to the community of great individuals and brands currently looking for short-term space on We Are Pop Up.

Why this is awesome:

– Anyone currently renting pop-up space can easily find a collaborator

– Anyone running events or short-term shops can now extend the opportunity to hundreds of exciting UK businesses currently listed on We Are Pop Up

– Agents, landlords or space managers can quickly find a great pop-up business that are ready to move in soon

To get started with a pop-up collaboration, log on to We Are Pop Up and (if you have not already) create a project. There is now a new option to add a space.

Add the details of a property and see a list of great brands looking for space in your area with the click of a button.
