Actual pop up retail space bookings

pop-up shop

I am an artist. I am interested in using your space for a Pop-up Shop. Please let me know if this is an event you host. With pop-up shops you usually don't know exactly how many people with come but its for people to buy merchandise and leave so I think it can work out so the space won't be at max capacity.

Having a Pop-Up in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 20+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Pop-Ups is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Having a Pop-Up in Oakland costs an average of $152 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (11 people or less) for closer to $108 and larger spaces (37 or more) run about $725 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. and run 6 hours 30 minutes in length. pop up retail spaces in Oakland tend to run slightly larger than average with 24 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in Oakland, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are loft venues and restaurants. We’d guess there are a few of both in the West Oakland neighborhood, seeing that it’s the reigning hot-spot for pop up retail spaces.

Oakland Peerspace hosts have welcomed 4600+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 4.9 stars across 140 reviewers. 96% of guests said they would book again.
