Retail Safaris

Best of Grocery Retail - London
Wednesday, 23 March 2017 | Central London, 8.30am - 4.00pm

Our retail safaris are designed to bring you up to speed rapidly with the latest trends and innovations in the UK market, helping you to better understand the opportunities for your business. Guided by the IGD team, you’ll visit some of London’s best stores, to see first-hand how the UK’s leading grocery retailers are responding to the latest trends. You’ll also meet with store management to further deepen your understanding.



Europe and North America

Across Europe and North America, IGD takes you 'on safari' to the best stores in a market, targeting the innovations and category developments that offer the sharpest insights relevant to your business. We take you on a journey to explore different formats and how retailers are meeting their customers' demands. Throughout your experience, we will be on-hand to offer knowledge, answer questions and take care of logistics, allowing you to optimise your safari experience and absorb all you can.
