blowUP media partners with Boxpark Croydon

After teaming up with the world's first pop-up mall, Boxpark Shoreditch, blowUP media are delighted to announce that the advertising space collaboration will be continuing in the second Boxpark location, Boxpark Croydon.

Boxpark Croydon, which holds 35 food and drink retailers, has a mouth-watering blend of London favourites such as The Breakfast Club, Chilango and Meat Liquor, fused with Croydon locals The Cronx; serving up locally brewed beer and grilled cheese sandwiches. Boxpark Croydon is Boxpark's first food and drink only outlet, with a 2000 capacity event space and a dedicated events programme, planning over 200 events every year to keep hungry locals entertained. By offering a space for both independent and established retailers to share one flexible and affordable space, this creates a unique way for all to succeed collaboratively and brings great food and drink offerings to the people of Croydon.

This elaborate collection of refitted shipping containers has already caused quite a stir with grime favourite Stormzy rocking up for a secret homecoming gig which he announced with less than an hour's notice. Plus, visitors have been quick to get vocal with their approval of Boxpark Croydon, as it has already generated almost five stars on Trip Advisor and likely to keep on climbing.

Simon Russell, Sales Director at blowUP media comments: "We are excited to see how brands can get involved with this rapidly-changing landscape and utilise an amazingly distinctive space, speaking directly to locals and beyond as they tuck into some delicious street food and enjoy the host of events and activity on offer at Shoreditch's south of the river sister. Croydon is already paving the way in terms of creativity with skilled street artists, talent bursting from the BRIT School and has even been earmarked as the 'Silicon Valley of South London'. This provides a great opportunity for brands to start a conversation with people living and working in Croydon."

Roger Wade, CEO and Founder of Boxpark says, "having worked with blowUP media for our Shoreditch space, we are delighted to work with them on our first food and drink only development in Croydon. blowUP media are constantly developing original and innovative concepts across their network and our new site fits perfectly within their proposition."
