Newly Launched Digital Solution "pop-up go" Connects Landlords and Space Seekers Online

Local Entrepreneur Linda Farha Maximizes Pop-Up Spaces for Short-Term Leasing Opportunities

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 6, 2015) - pop-up go, an online connector for landlords and space seekers, has launched its digital solution to maximize opportunities in the pop-up industry by providing a platform to connect people and businesses for short-term leasing.

According to a recent study by PopUp Republic, the pop-up industry is currently valued at over $50 billion and both landlords and savvy entrepreneurs alike are on the hunt for creative ways to leverage the power of pop-ups. Pop-up stores offer the opportunity to launch a brand, test a new geographic market, grow a business, host VIP events, and fill open spaces for a few days, weeks or months. Whether it's within a traditional mall setting in LA, a storage container in New York City, a streetcar in Toronto or even inside existing retail space in Montreal, pop-up go brings landlords and space seekers together wherever they are.

"With an expected 78 per cent increase in pop-up stores in the next five years, according to a poll by Retail Wire, the short-term leasing industry is quickly growing in importance for brick and mortar," said Linda Farha, founder and chief connector, pop-up go. "It is, however, time consuming for landlords and space seekers to find each other I started pop-up go to address this issue and, much like a vacation rental apps, my solution brings these groups together to list, search and select the spaces that fit their needs, turning empty places into revenue generating opportunities. pop-up go facilitates the perfect match!"

"Big name brands, online-only sites, and musicians and local artisans are giving pop-ups a try," continued Linda Farha. "Digital convenience is driving the desire for products around the globe, but consumers still want the tangible experience of physically going into a space. pop-up go helps connect these two worlds."

pop-up go is popping-up for the ICSC Canadian Convention on October 6 and 7, 2015 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in booth #2600.
