Welcome to the website that connects emerging brands with shops, markets and pop-up spaces around the world.

A thoroughly modern British brand, Appear Here is a platform for matching great ideas to great spaces around the world. It claims to make booking pop-up shop space as easy as booking a hotel room. Plus, it works as well for brands needing a space as it does for the landlords of the retail spaces themselves.

Founded in 2013 by Ross Bailey, Appear Here does for retail space what Airbnb does for private holiday lets. Brands can use the site to search an exclusive collection of the world’s best retail spaces, while landlords can use it to get their space the exposure it deserves.



According to a report carried out by EE, the UK pop-up industry has an estimated worth of £2.3 billion. Riding on that wave, Appear Here’s mission is: “to create a world where anyone with an idea can find space to make it happen”.

The site is beautifully designed and totally user-friendly, offering stylish guides to each of the cities in which it has listings. The booking process is managed securely online; the customer service is top notch; and the spaces themselves are some of the best in the world.



The flourishing company has been included in Wired’s list of 100 Hottest Start Ups and Bloomberg’s list of the UK’s Most Innovative Companies – and it won a Proptech Company of the Year award.

Ross Bailey, CEO, says: “Appear Here is the world leader at what we do. We’ve got offices in London, Paris and New York, and now we’re looking forward to launching more tools and opening up new locations for our growing community to take their ideas to the next level.”

You heard the man. All you need is an idea – then, through Appear Here, you will find a space for it to thrive in, too.
