WASABI Insight vol.8 "Popup Store Master Class, Alternative Retail Marketing"


3rd August (Thu) 7:00pm WorkCentral @ Dhoby Ghaut

Connecting Japan & ASEAN for casual & stimulating exchange of ideas in business. A truly cross-border business networking event, first of its kind in Singapore.

Pop-up stores are hot on the retail scene​

"Online labels have been jumping aboard the pop-up store trend. Though reports of the weakening retail market and ailing brick-and-mortar business abound, online retailers are using temporary physical spaces in malls and department stores to reach out to a wider audience... Pop-ups are a way for the company to expand its footprint and to acquire customers from different locations. You get to activate crowds in certain parts of Singapore for a few months and then you move to another location and acquire new customers again."

-The Straits Times
