Store and Innovation Tours
Tuesday 6th June 2023
It’s no coincidence that we have picked Kyoto as the destination for our 2023 Global Summit. Japan has a long and rich history and is globally renowned for its food culture, industry and innovation. Japan’s leading retailers are highly sophisticated – particularly in technology and electronics – mirroring the Japanese consumer, who is at the vanguard of 21st century shopping.
This year we have two options for discovering Kyoto. Delegates who sign up can choose between a store tour or an innovation tour. Both action-packed full-day tours will take place on Tuesday 6th June 2023 and you can only choose one option.
The Store & Innovation Tours are Kindly Sponsored by
