About PopUp Wales

We understand the risks involved when starting a new business, launching a new product, or trying out an idea. It can be daunting.

PopUp Wales is the first pop-up (or meanwhile) space initiative in South Wales. We match up temporary retail spaces with individuals and businesses who want a flexible, short-term, and affordable space.

It also benefits landlords by filling their empty units with exciting activity.

And it enhances the vibrancy of the local area by encouraging local spend and increasing the diversity of what is offered to shoppers.
