PROBLEM
Meeting your customers face to face is the most important way to build your following, but putting on your own events is costly and challenging.
Having your own store is the holy grail of retail—but signing long-term leases without vetting spaces is risky.
Building a brand is tough, plain and simple. And the only way to effectively scale your brand is to join forces with the right partners at the right time.
SOLUTION
Participate in an AF Event where you’ll meet 3-5K targeted consumers, retail buyers, editors, and like-minded founders in just two days on the weekend.
Our centralized platform has hundreds of prime retail storefronts that enable brands to test drive a space before signing a long-term lease.
We’ve done the all the hard work finding not only the best partners, but the ones that are worth teaming up with, no matter how big or small your brand is.

Pop-Up Events

As the starting point for most AF community brands our marketplaces enable you to make direct sales, build your email list, meet press and media, meet buyers, test product market fit, and even determine where to open a potential store.

Find the best retail storefront for your brand regardless if you’re looking for a kiosk in Atlanta, a raw space in the Boston Seaport, or a fully built store in SoHo, NY. We’ve built relationships with the nation’s leading real estate developers so you can take the guesswork out of finding your new storefront.

Retail Spaces

Partner with the Best

You can’t grow alone, but choosing the right partners can be challenging. We did the hard work for you: vetted dozens of competing services, dove deep into the details, and created a curated selection of only the best partners so you can easily discover the best fit for your brand when the time is right.
