Explore Chicago Through the Store Tours Program at #RICE24 

Did you know Chicago was voted Best Big City in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards for the seventh consecutive year? It’s quite impressive, considering that it makes Chicago the first and only city in the 36-year history of these awards to be named Best Big City for seven consecutive years. There are so many unique neighborhoods to explore in Chicago, especially in the summertime, arguably the best time to visit Chicago. And the only way to truly discover the best parts of the Windy City is to embark on the journey for yourself (with a little help from us 😉) 

We’re thrilled to announce the return of our highly anticipated Store Tours program, led by our amazing partners at Insider Trends! Insider Trends’ tours inspire candid and thought-provoking conversations about the industry’s biggest trends, challenges and innovation opportunities. They curate their world-renowned tours to reflect attendees’ most pressing issues and distill tour takeaways so they’re equally inspiring and actionable. They’re not the No. 1 retail trends tour company for nothing! 

Taking place on Tuesday, June 4, we’ll dive into the bustling neighborhoods of Chicago with expert guides at Insider Trends to experience the latest and greatest in retail innovation. Due to the incredible demand for our first addition of the Store Tours program last year, we knew we needed to elevate this year’s program with the Insider Trends team. That’s why we’re expanding the tours to four total groups this year, instead of two, to allow more retail and brand executives to experience the magic of retail design and store tech in Chicago. You can choose from either the Technology Innovation Tour, the Experiential Design Tour or both! Highly recommend wearing comfortable sneakers, be ready to get your steps in.  

But, hurry! With limited slots available and less than 40 spots remaining, now is the time to secure your spot among industry peers and thought leaders. Check out the initial list of potential stores that will be included on the tours, and we look forward to exploring the vibrant city of Chicago with you all!
