If you’re unaware of the pop-up phenomenon then let me explain. The characteristics of a pop-up business or event is that they are marketed discreetly, appear for business for a short time (any time from a few hours to a few weeks), and then disappear again. If they are a success then they will pop-up another time and usually in a different location.
Pop-up events and businesses are quirky, fun and very intriguing!

From Russia the inventive minds at the Arch Group have come up with the Sleepbox – see the video below. It’s designed for people in busy cities who find themselves at train stations or airports without a hotel for the night, or day. The idea is to book in to catch up on sleep before your flight or train departs.
