Bristol Property Pop-ups launched with a taste of the city’s indie food and drink sector

September 29, 2017

Bristol Business News and law firm Thrings have teamed up to launch Bristol Property Pop-ups, a series of events celebrating and showcasing some of the city’s ground-breaking property developments.

The inaugural event took place with guests drawn from among the city’s property professionals at CARGO, the innovative retail scheme at Wapping Wharf made from converted shipping containers and which has become a successful hub for Bristol’s artisan food and drink sector. 

To give guests an authentic taste of the sector, CARGO tenant Bristol Cider Shop staged a cider-tasting session with shop owner Pete Snowman explaining why he relocated his business to the scheme.

Louis Arron from Wapping Wharf developer Umberslade spoke about the concept behind CARGO and its huge success before giving a guided tour of the scheme.

Bristol Business News editor Robert Buckland said: “The idea for Bristol Property Pop-ups came from a discussion with Thrings director of marketing Lizzie Heffer about the interesting developments going on in and around Bristol.

“We thought it would be great to get behind the scenes and hear from those individuals and businesses that are driving these schemes and reshaping our city. The developers, the funders, the architects, the occupiers and so on.

“The reason we picked the Cider Shop was not only because Pete Snowman epitomises the growing independent food and drink industry here in Bristol. But also because he chose to move his shop to CARGO to be at the heart of the innovative Wapping Wharf development.”

Future Bristol Property Pop-ups will be staged quarterly in other innovative schemes around the city.
