You are here: Pop Up Tent News Latest Pop Up Tents – The History Pop Up Tents – The HistoryThe pop up tent was the brainchild of a Bournemouth University (BU) student.   BU Product Design graduate Franziska Conrad came up with the initial design for the pop up tent as part of her final year project at BU.  Her first design was the Quick Pitch SS which has been in production since 2006 and has now sold over 150,000 worlwide.  It has also been voted ‘Best Festival Tent’ by The Guardian newspaper and ‘Best Festival Product’ by Channel Five’s The Gadget Show. When the university saw the potential of the initial design by Franziska they helped her protect the intellectual property rights of the design and also helped her search out a suitable company to manufacture and market the Quick Pitch pop up tent.  In the end Franziska and BU Innovations Ltd signed and licensing agreement with Gelert.  Gelert are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers for camping and outdoor equipment in the UK and they offered a great route to market for these ingeniously designed pop up tents.  Two European companies have tried to copy and launch the Quick Pitch design abut BU’s in-house legal team managed to enforce Franziska’s intellectual property rights and won compensation for lost sales and legal costs.Since the initial Quick Pitch SS design that was licensed to Gelert, Franziska has come up with the Quick Pitch SS+, Quick Pitch SS XL, Quick Pitch Evolution 2, and the Quick Pitch Revolve.  According to Franziska’s blog some new designs for the pop up tent are in the pipeline.
