The JWT team of planners, ranging from very senior to quite young, found the session inspiring, interesting and useful. Its breadth and expertise made it well worth the time and the fees. I’d highly recommend it to anyone to whom the retail environment is relevant.”

Retail safaris and retail trend tours

Our team of trendspotters will save you time, pinpointing the latest, most innovative spaces that you might otherwise miss. They’ll share insights gained through a raft of personal interviews, giving you information you won’t find online or in reports. And they’ll guide you through your new city – leaving you to focus on what you’ve seen, rather than how to get to the next venue. The length, theme and itinerary of your trend tour will be created just for you and your team. Meetings with the most innovative professionals in retail can often be added, pushing your understanding of what’s coming next even further into the future.

“Thanks for a great retail tour. It stimulated lots of ideas about how we can create stronger connections with consumers in our store environment, and was a great launch activity for our new store design project.”

– Melissa Potter, Managing Director, Clarks International

Meetings with retail innovators

There’s no better way to learn about the future of retail than to meet the people shaping those futures. We can introduce you to the companies and individuals who have worked on specific projects, and who are developing the latest technology for retail. You’ll discover new solutions and strategies as you pick their brains on what’s coming next. Meetings with innovators can be requested as stand-alone activities, or as part of a retail safari programme.

“My business group has one big retreat per year where we explore the history, economy, politics and banking systems of a country or location. Insider Trends made it easy for us to connect and plug in to what was happening and who was making it happen.”

– Clay Duncan, President and CEO, Southern Fidelity Mortgage
