We are passionate about the future of retail placemaking.
Free Space+ is a competition supporting budding businesses
and those ready for the next step. We are looking for businesses that
are small, hungry and ultimately, have potential for longevity. Are you up for it?



What's the deal?

Nine Revo member landlords and partners are giving up to £300,000 worth of cost-free pop up space and business support to nine winners for up to 3 months in the first half of 2018!

But businesses need more than just space... so we have a huge support package for winning entries!

  • Business advice and support from the British Independent Retailers Association

  • Pop up kiosk and design time with The Yard Creative

  • Mentoring with retail and industry experts



Entries close Wednesday 1 November

Our members have offered up thriving retail places all over the country.
Over 100 sites available to you!

When you enter, you will be able to pick one preferred retail place which you believe would be a great audience for your business. Have a think about which location and retail place would work best!

Our Applicants Toolkit shows what the centres are – some big, with lots of people visiting and hugely competitive environments for all retailers, and some are smaller, more community focused.

In your application, you’ll have to give us a reason for picking this as your preferred centre, so choose wisely!

For placement of winners, it is up to the discretion of the judging panel/landlords which centres will host you. However, we will work closely to give you as close to your choice of retail place as possible.


Entry questions - have a think!

As well as picking your preferred retail place and giving us a reason why, we want to find out about you and your business. These questions are in our application form, but here's your chance to prepare!

  • A video showing us you and your business.
    We want to experience what your customers will on a daily basis! Show us your goods, your environment, your staff, you! Upload this to a video hosting site such as YouTube or Vimeo and copy and paste the link into the application form.
