What is a mall activation?
Mall activations are when a brand leverages a mall environment to experientially engage people with popups, events, PR stunts, and activities to achieve marketing goals. Your mall activation can take place on a single day, on the weekend, or, in the case of a popup shop, for an entire month.
Detailed mall demographics offer brands the ability to engage specific audiences.
Ideally, your mall activation enhances a person's experience at the mall while achieving brand objectives.
Malls charge fees for activation space, ranging from $500 to $15,000 per day, depending upon the location and length of the initiative.
Overall, a mall provides your company with unique brand marketing opportunities.

Newer malls are more than shopping destinations; they're where people go out to eat, socialize, and attend local happenings.
