IGD retail safaris
We can keep you up to date with retail and food-to-go format developments across Europe and North America. Our retail safaris will help you understand these innovations and what they mean for your customers, categories and markets.
Why go on a safari?
In an increasingly competitive market, staying on top of new concepts is key to understanding potential impacts for your business and customers. For both retailers and suppliers, getting to grips with the latest retail innovations and store formats is vital to surviving and thriving.
How we can help you
Our global coverage and local knowledge mean we’re uniquely placed to offer you a personalised safari service.
We take you to the fastest-moving, most innovative cities, such as Boston, Vancouver, London, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Toronto, New York and Dublin.
Food-to-go; proximity formats; digital innovation; supermarket evolution; the future of discount. These are just a few examples of recent client focus.
We’ll tailor a study tour to your needs
But you can see a sample structure for your study tour below:
- Identifying your priorities, we will select the right location, stores and concepts for you
- A pre-session briefing, over breakfast or as a pre-read, will bring the local trading context to life, allowing you to sharpen your focus on the visits
- Your IGD market experts will lead your programme of visits, sharing our market and retailer knowledge. Where relevant, we’ll introduce you to the teams on-site to facilitate discussion
- De-brief sessions to maximise learnings from the store visits and help shape your group priorities
We’ll be on-hand throughout your safari to offer knowledge, answer your questions and take care of logistics. You’ll be able to optimise your experience and absorb all you can.
