International Study Tour to Tokyo & Seoul

In an increasingly globalised business environment, key insights into the trends and developments within the international retail property and placemaking community is fundamental.

Revo’s international study tours present a unique platform for staying ahead of the market curve. Fascinating insights, learning and unique opportunities to further connections and make new contacts. Last year, we took over 20 industry colleagues to see the impressive regeneration of Singapore. Appetite, uptake and feedback was unrivalled so we’re pushing the boundaries even further in 2017. 

Tokyo and Seoul is the location. Showcasing a dynamic and diverse blend of retail and leisure properties, catering concepts, digital technology, mixed use districts, brand flagships and individual concept stores and experiences. And all packed in to just 5 days. 

Whatever your place in the retail property and placemaking community - whether developer, investor, agent, consultant, retail or leisure operator - this is a programme which will take you to see first-hand, some of the world’s leading urban and retail innovations. Unquestionably, these are rapidly expanding and fast moving environments we can all take inspiration from. And maximise business opportunities.

A number of leading companies and influencers have a substantial presence and portfolio in these destinations and will be sharing their direct market insights and trends.


Following the tour, participants will receive a detailed information pack to share with colleagues, spotlighting the multiple projects seen. The tour itinerary is not limited to, but will include*:
