east end presents Pop Up 2.0
Room for brands, sales and stories

The Pop-Up-Store – play of brands or actual sales tool? Small field-activities or sustainable communication tool? And what exactly are the latest trends in pop-up-culture, moreover in retail design, worldwide?

These and further questions is what the agency for live-communication east end communications, the communication-agency komm.passion, and the architecture office GRAFT are trying to answer in a series of lectures in two cities.

In the metropolises Berlin (on 6 November 2013 in InterContinental Berlin) and Munich (on 14 November 2013 in Daily Business Restaurant & Event location), three speakers will deliver insight into the phenomenon pop-up 2.0 in three brief speeches:

  • In his speech „Pop-up 2.0 – room for brand experience, sales and stories“, the managing direct of east end Oliver Golz, will deliver insight into status quo and development of the pop-up-culture, along with different objectives and worldwide best cases
  • „Pop-Up-Store – Is it more than a store? – It’s a story.“ – Prof. Dr. Alexander Güttler, CEO of the communication agency komm.passion, faces the question: “Is the pop-up-store a proper communication tool?”
  • Two of the three founders of Graft – Lars Krückeberg (in Berlin) and Wolfram Putz (in Düsseldorf) – share their “prospects for global trends in retail-design, as well as emotionalisation and dynamisation of urban space through pop-up-culture”

The series of lectures address entrepreneurs, decision maker and creators of marketing, who know, that the consumer is a complicated and over stimulated being, whose hidden desires and instincts are to be aroused, in order to not just make them opt for the limited shopping-experience, but even make them looking forward to it.
