Store Tours - Retail Innovation Conference & Expo

Store Tours

Explore Chicago, a vibrant (yet often understated) hub for retail innovation, with our Guided and Self-Guided Store Tours programs in partnership with Insider Trends!

Tour Details


Join your executive peers for an in-depth journey through the Windy City, and see how independent merchants, budding DTC brands and established omnichannel retailers are embracing innovative technology, merchandising techniques and powerful storytelling to bring their brands to life. Want to get all the details you need to inspire collaboration and innovation within your organization? These guided tours will be led by Insider Trends, one of the industry’s most known and respected retail consultancies in the world.

These guided tours are only available to a limited number of retail and brand executives, but that doesn’t mean others can’t enjoy the retail magic of Chicago! Others can partake in self-guided tours by seeing our recommended stores to visit in the Retail Innovation Conference & Expo app.
