What is a Pop-Up?

(And why do you need to know?)

A Pop-Up is a simple name for an event that is unexpected, of short duration, a surprise, uses an unusual space as a venue, or any combination of the above.

What’s the difference between a Pop-Up and traditional events?

In essence, a pop-up is your rowdy teenager (novel, fun, rule breaker) and a traditional event, for example, a Thanksgiving Dinner (you know more or less what to expect, when to expect it, and you have a good idea of who’ll be there and what they’ll be doing and wearing).

Why create a pop-up?

Could it be about novelty? Or better yet, surprise, intrigue, fun, or uniqueness? Show off your space, the activity, or even the exclusivity of the event. Looking to drive sales, donations, or build your client base quickly? Host a Pop-Up!

What are some examples of Pop-Ups?

Flash mobs, temporary Halloween stores, holiday markets are all versions of pop-ups.

Spread your party out by doing pop-ups—instead of one big bash where everybody feels overwhelmed, break it up into several small segments, mixing and remixing guests and elements—switching them out.

Or use a pop-up to showcase a new space, product, equipment, or way of doing things. Better yet, turn your pop-up into a road trip with dedicated vehicles that transport attendees from one unexpected stop to the next. Want to take it a step further? Deck out each bus with it’s own ‘costume’—decor + entertainer!
