Storefront named 2019 LVMH Innovation Awards finalist

Storefront, the world’s largest online marketplace for renting short-term retail space, has teamed up with global real estate investor Ivanhoé Cambridge, to expand its offering to more temporary spaces at its upscale shopping centre properties across Canada. This partnership allows Storefront to expand its global inventory of pop-up store listings into Canada, furthering its goal of making retail accessible to every retailer’s best ideas.

Storefront, the world’s largest marketplace for short-term retail, has just been selected by LVMH as a finalist in the 2019 LVMH Innovation Awards. The award will be presented at Viva Technology, the global meetup for startups and innovation leaders on May 16th-18th in Paris.

The theme of the awards is “Crafting the customer experience of tomorrow” and the 30 participating startups will be presenting their vision to both industry professionals and the general public.

“Brands must engage and entertain consumers in order to build a lasting connection with them. Pop-up stores allow brands to gain new customers and entice loyal followers through immersive and entertaining experiences. The customer is no longer just a consumer, they are a participant and should be an integral part of the brand’s story,” says Mohamed Haouache, founder and CEO of Storefront.

VivaTech is held each year in Paris, France. Storefront will be presenting on Luxury Lab LVMH stand J30 at the VivaTechnology trade show on May 16, 17 and 18, 2019.
