Event Details

Are you a property owner looking to utilize your available space through innovative engagement? Or a budding entrepreneur looking for opportunities to try on the retail lifestyle? How about a maker looking to test out a ‘bricks and mortar’ location? Or just someone who gets excited about utilizing the concept of ‘pop-up shops’ as a means for downtowns revitalization?


Then join us for Big Talk Small Talk, an exciting symposium promoting urban vitality featuring some of the country's leading experts in pop-upretail. 


Pop-up retail, aka ‘pop-up stores’ or ‘flash retailing,’ is a current trend of opening short-term sales spaces. The idea involves “popping-up” one day, then disappearing anywhere from one day to several weeks later. These shops, while small and temporary, build up interest by consumer exposure and create pedestrian activity in urban cores. Pop-up retail allows a company to create a unique environment to engage customers, and generate a feeling of relevance and interactivity.


The schedule includes a dynamic line-up of conversations and lectures, discussion panels, and a roving mini-conference that will take place in several vacant storefronts along the high streets of Covington’s urban core.

Event Speakers include:

Lisa Frisch, Portland Business Alliance

Griffin VanMeter, Kentucky for Kentucky

Michael Forsyth, Detroit Economic Growth Corporation


Speakers will relay their experiences in their cities as well as participate in discussions on urban issues relevant to Covington and Greater Cincinnati.
