Insider Trends

This year, we’re thrilled to have Insider Trends hosting our Guided Store Tours. After all, their tours are renowned around the world. They’ve taken many of the world’s biggest brands around New York, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Seoul, Tokyo and more. But these tours are much more than a tour of what’s new in a city.

Insider Trends’ tours aim to inspire conversations about the biggest questions in retail today. They’re constantly seeing change happen in retail first-hand, all over the world, and they bring those trends and ideas to every single tour.

The aim is that you leave inspired, ready to provoke new ideas among your colleagues and clients.
