SpaceandPeople and Network Rail works with The 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships team to open their pop-up merch shop

August 2023 saw the long-anticipated 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships arrive in Glasgow! The event has been described as “cycling’s biggest ever event” and took place throughout Glasgow and Scotland for 10 days from the 3rd to 11th of August.

We were delighted to work with the team to open their merchandise pop-up shop within Network Rail’s Glasgow Central Station. The pop-up was located in the main concourse of the station and was effectively branded with cycling imagery. Their pop-up promoted the championships perfectly and retailed a great range of merchandise including the adorable “Champs Coo” soft toy! Glasgow Central was the perfect venue to attract customers with a combined footfall of 1,310,000 during their placement.

Managing Director of Event Merchandising Ltd, Jeremy Goldsmith had this to say about the pop-up shop:

“Glasgow Central was the ideal location for our pop-up merchandise store as we were able to promote the championships and merchandise to supporters from all over the world as they passed through the station. The championships were a huge success, and the pop-up shop was integral to supporting the events and providing supporters with mementos to remind them of their time in Glasgow!”
