- 1.2k Downloads
The inherent flexibility of pop-up means that it can potentially contribute to a variety of objectives, termed by Warnaby et al. (2015) as Communicational, Experiential, Transactional and Testing objectives. This research identifies a range of different objectives that the pop-up activities studied sought to achieve. These are classified into seven, more specific objectives, namely: Increasing Brand Awareness; Influencing Brand Associations; Promoting Seasonal/Limited Collection Products; Engaging Customers; Gathering Customer Insight; Testing Market Concepts; and Facilitating Strategic Growth.
