Budding Entrepreneurs Create ‘Pop-Up’ Market at intu Broadmarsh

by Nottingham Partners

240 STUDENTS from across Nottingham launched, promoted and sold their own products on Saturday 2 March as part of a unique ‘pop-up’ market experience at intu Broadmarsh.

Life News

“Working with the community is really important to us, so we were delighted to welcome students from Nottingham Young Enterprise and support them by hosting them at intu Broadmarsh. The pop-up market was a great way to give local students an insight in to the fast-paced world of retail, and really gave our customers something a little bit extra while visiting our retailers.”

Nigel Wheatley, general manager for intu in Nottingham

“It was incredibly worthwhile to bring our students into the heart of Nottingham city centre, especially allowing them to gain real retail insight on the mall at intu Broadmarsh. This is the first of five stages of this competition, and we hope to see some of Nottingham’s talented students compete at an international level in August.”

Dave Perkins from Nottingham Young Enterprise
