Retail Risk – Cape Town 2016 has been very enthusiastically received

So much so that we are already preparing for Retail Risk – Cape Town 2017 at the same venue. The date for the event will be announced soon. Whilst we are fixing the details, here’s what our delegates had to say about this year’s conference…

"What an eye opener. This was my first risk conference and it was relaxing yet informative. I would definitely recommend this conference to all risk officers. It is a great place for risk officers to network so that we can collectively reduce the retail risk we face."

Retail Risk – Cape Town 2016

"As a Value Retailor, I enjoyed the discussion from Jon Wright (River Island), as his topics were relevant to us. The other speakers all gave insight to their specific area of expertise and that was also informative."

Retail Risk – Cape Town 2016

"The speakers had practical experience I.e. their talks were not academic. The topics were relevant and solutions were practical and easily implementable. I found the conference insightful. The speakers were experts in their area and the topics were relevant for what is happening in the market today. Conference was very informative and it was particularly relevant that they focused on most recent trends as well as technology."

Join us at Retail Risk – Cape Town for the new live and interactive Retail Risk Global Survey...

Since 2011 Retail Knowledge’s surveys of retailers primarily in the US, UK and Australia have become an indispensable tool for the industry to benchmark operations and find practical ways to beat fraudsters. Now the survey is going global, real time and widening its remit to cover the risk arena. This will produce the most timely, accurate and relevant material ever available on all aspects of retail risk.

Using latest polling technology, the survey canvasses information from delegates at each conference and  publishes the results in real time at the event. The material is then compiled into a detailed report.

Live, anonymous and instant: here’s how the Global Risk Survey works…

As a delegate at Retail Risk – Cape Town, you will be asked to log on to a secure, third party website. This will allow you to vote and share information anonymously. Live on stage, a presenter will lead a discussion on important aspects of retail operations, such as shrink levels, what issues people are finding most challenging and what technology they are using to meet those challenges.

The audience interact with the live debate via the website. You may be asked to state anonymously what your shrink levels are, or pick the 1st, 2nd and 3rd biggest causes of loss to your business on and offline. You may provide feedback as to what technologies you are investing in over the coming 18 months and what technologies you see themselves as needing additional help with.

Audience feedback is processed, instantly tabulated, plotted on graphs and presented live as it is received. So the information is bang up to date and because it is provided anonymously, there are no issues over commercial sensitivity. The results are subsequently put into a report with commentary from the panel, which can be delivered to attendees who request it. With the new survey, retailers will immediately be able to make international comparisons. They will see how threats are changing geographically and will track those changes year on year.
