If the future of physical retail is all about experience, shouldn’t you experience the best in world retail for yourself?


Our custom strategic retail safaris and trend tours will take you into the very best retail stores and show you why they’re successful. Your safari will be led by a Senior Trend Consultant, who will explain what each space does differently and how this helps the brand sell more. They’ll then present you with questions for your business to help you rework the trends and innovations.

Identify the next hot retail trends – without the stress and worry of navigating a new city alone – and learn how to inspire your team, where to innovate and how to boost your bottom line.

“I’ve been on safaris with McKinsey and Boston Consulting Group. The Insider Trends safari was better. The introductory presentation was packed with ideas and new concepts too.”

Claes Meldgaard, Former CEO, Nilson Group


“The Insider Trends tour 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


“The things you’ve shown us in London today will probably appear in other European cities in about four years’ time. It’s as close to stepping into the future as we can get.”
Jorge Magaña, Co Owner, Segway Madrid


“We came to find inspiration for our new major project. We needed to see the best of what’s happening in the world, but we had no time to go on a world tour. London’s a global city – you’ve showed us the best of what’s happening worldwide in a few hours. It’s been great.”
David Hagelin, Creative Director at a Swedish Advertising Agency


“With only one day to spot the newest retail trends in London, we were very content with the retail trend tour. We were given a huge amount of insight on a very tight schedule. We were impressed by Insider Trends ability to tailor the tour precisely to give us relevant and useful insight for our industry. Thank you!”
Naja Henriette Knorr, Corporate Design Manager, Marketing Danmark, Jyske Bank


“Insider Trends are THE trend experts – they are always aware of the latest retail trends, they comment on how these affect varying domains and they are able to analyse and present these trends in a worldwide context.

We’ve worked with Insider Trends since 2014, creating bespoke retail trend tours for French companies. Their involvement ensures that the stores visited will be highly relevant to our groups’ interests and the information shared will be of an extremely high quality. Insider Trends’ efficient logistics also mean that the tour is seamlessly organised and participants can focus on their learnings and conversations.

The Lemensearch trend tours kick off with an extensive retail trend presentation. This gives participants a solid insight into the major retail trends in London and also worldwide. Our sessions involve an optimised structure that lets us visit up to 16 stores or spaces in a day. The relevance of each space in terms of future retail trends is then explained, supported by statistics and survey results. Meetings are also organised with key business leaders and concept creators.

Insider Trends take into account the needs of each individual client on every retail safari. They can also adapt the retail safari on the day to encompass individual participants’ interests or needs.”

Belinda Picaud, Associate Director, Lemensearch
