Today, container shopping village Convoi opens its doors in Antwerp. In 45 containers, new and established labels will be operating temporary sales points.
Inspired by international initiatives, such as Boxpark in London and the Downtown Container Park in Las Vegas, entrepreneurs are given the opportunity at Convoi to open pop-up sales points in containers. The containers are standing in the shade of Antwerp’s main attractions such as the MAS and the port. The Eilandje is particularly well known for its gastronomic and culinary highlights but it lacked a retail project, until now.
The project’s main focus is supporting young entrepreneurs to achieve their goals. In order to guarantee an eclectic mix of products Convoi aims to attract up to 450 entrepreneurs per year: from start-ups to well-known labels.
