Popup Brands, Australia’s first online short-term space rental market, has rebranded as SpaceBook. It now streamlines and automates short-term bookings for Australia’s commercial short-term space rental market, which is estimated at $2.7 billon per annum.It also remains focussed on helping space owners maximise the value of their assets. By doing so, the business has helped brands large and small rent space for way more than pop-ups.
“We’ve changed our name to better reflect who we are and what we do for our customers,” said SpaceBook co-founder Marianella Watman.
