In-store guidelines & general information for The Lobby MARKET
The Lobby is located at Regeringsgatan 61. (map)
The Lobby is open to the public during the following hours:
Weekdays: 10.00 to 20.00
Saturday: 10.00 to 18.00
We are currently working on creating a seamless plug-in payment solution. Our number one goal is to build a solution that is integration friendly yet stable and secure. More information on our plug-in payment solution can be expected shortly.
Meanwhile please be prepared that due to KYC (Know Your Customer) regulations and AML (Anti money laundering) legislation it will require some time to get the integration with the payment solution done properly.
The Lobby will provide skilled and service-minded retail personnel responsible for hosting The Lobby during opening hours, as well as overall styling of The Lobby with props and products from different brands within The Lobby.
To ensure that The Lobby staff can perform at their best and possess the knowledge required to market/sell/display each client’s products/services, retailers undertake to provide AMF with educational material no later than two weeks before Lobby entering day. The material can be physical or digital but please bear in mind that the reading time required should not exceed thirty minutes.
For products that are technically advanced or for other reasons require an in-depth level of education and learning we strongly recommend that clients bring their own personnel to The Lobby.
Educational material should be sent to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
As a retailer/client/brand, you are also entitled to have your own staff in place, in addition to the staff provided by AMF. This will be at your own expense and will have no effect on the price. Staff provided by the client will only have access to The Lobby during normal opening hours.
Even though we are confident that our Stars will handle The Lobby in the most professional way we strongly recommend each client to come visit The Lobby at some during your time in The Lobby.
AMF is responsible for the daily maintenance of The Lobby premises. The staff provided by AMF will ensure all plug-in retail spaces are kept clean, tidy, refilled and showcased at all times in accordance with the agreement.

Why is it important to be properly insured?
Deliveries to and from The Lobby:
If your goods are being transported by an independent carrier, the goods will not be insured if they are damaged in transit.
If your goods are damaged in transit by an independent carrier and the carrier accepts liability for the damage, remuneration will be limited to SEK 150/kg within Sweden. If the carrier does not accept liability for the damaged goods, no remuneration will be payable at all.
If your goods are being transported in your own vehicle and are damaged, the vehicle’s insurance policy will not cover the damaged goods.
Your goods may disappear/be stolen in transit.
During your time in The Lobby:
Your goods may be damaged or stolen or get lost during your time in The Lobby.
The Lobby’s insurance policy is an affordable way of being properly insured and is an excellent supplement to your business insurance.
Insurance sign up: We are currently working on creating an easy process for insurance sign up. More information can be expected shortly.
Each client is entitled to display their products within The Lobby’s physical premises. In addition to physical exposure, each client is also entitled to exposure via The Lobby’s digital channels. The Lobby will have access to a dedicated “Lobby Marketing Manager”. The Marketing Manager will ensure sure that The Lobby’s digital channels are continuously updated with the latest information about The Lobby’s current brands.
All material to be communicated or displayed via The Lobby's channels, physically and digitally, must be approved by AMF prior to publication. In order for us to be able to deliver on our promise of media exposure in The Lobby’s channels, we have defined a minimum level of material we require from each brand. The format of the material to be delivered is defined in the section "Digital Media Exposure". The volume and quality of the material you submit will set the level for how much space each client will be allocated. The higher the quality and coverage of the material submitted, the easier it will be for us to promote your brand.
Physical exposure guidelines
The Lobby package you have signed up for will set the framework/guidelines for your brand’s physical exposure within The Lobby. The size of the package will define the type and size of interiors/furnishings you are entitled to. Within each package size you will be able to choose from a list of options. The idea is to give each brand the opportunity to select the furnishings that are best suited to showcase the client’s specific products. To facilitate the selection process and give you an idea of what a Lobby exposure could look like, we will provide you with some inspirational images on how the different packages can be staged.
To make the selection process as easy as possible, we will provide you with a form on which you will be able to select everything from furnishings included in the standard packages, to different add-ons, such as additional storage, lighting, digital screens, etc. This is where you will also find the inspirational images.
Digital exposure guidelines
Your brand in The Lobby’s digital channels.
Each client, regardless of what package they have signed up for, is entitled to exposure via The Lobby’s digital channels, both online and in the physical space through our digital screens within the Lobby’s premises
(Social media is selected on a randomized basis)
In order to enable such exposure, each client must provide us with material connected to their brand. The minimum level of material we require to guarantee each brand’s presence is as follows:
Logotype, EPS-format 300 dpi and JPG-format 72 dpi
A minimum of two press images, EPS-format 300 dpi and JPG-format 72 dpi
A short summary about your brand. Preferably in English.
Link to website or e-commerce site
Clients wishing to provide us with extra material in addition to the above are, of course, more than welcome to do so. If you would like us to showcase any motional material, it must be delivered as youtube or vimeo links.
For AMF to be able to guarantee each client’s presence in The Lobby’s digital channels we must have access to the material no later than 30 days prior to Lobby entering.
All material should be submitted to the following email address: email@example.com
The Lobby brand in our client’s digital channels
Clients who wish to share their Lobby collaboration prior, during and after their time in The Lobby in their own channels are, of course, more than welcome to do so. In fact, we strongly believe that a joint effort in terms of exposure and communication adds up to something much stronger than the sum of the parts.
To facilitate such activity, we have created a digital toolbox. The digital toolbox can be found on The Lobby’s content platform. A unique login to the platform has or will, within a few days, be submitted via email. The digital toolbox includes the following material
Suggested timetable for communication activities
The Lobby’s logo type
A list of hashtags
The Lobby – key messages
Copywriting suggestions for Instagram and Facebook
Graphic design elements from The Lobby’s visual identity
Please note that the Lobby content platform is not up and running quite yet but will be shortly.
