Retailers proclaim Retail Risk – Dubai 2017 “Excellent,” “Amazing” or “Delightful”?

The conference, for which some 200 delegates had registered, met with great success thanks to the new format, new networking sessions and some outstanding presentations.

This year’s Retail Risk – Dubai conference boasted a brilliant roster of international speakers, many having flown in specifically for the conference. Ably chaired by Peter Page, all presentations were outstanding, with particular favourites being Corin Dennison of adidas, Jason Hall also of adidas, Colin Stewart from Abercrombie & Fitch and Daniel Muller of McDonalds.

Popular innovations for this year’s conference was a new open plan format that significantly helped networking opportunities throughout the day as well as a new Meet the Experts session; a worldwide first launched at Dubai. The session saw each of our experts sat with tables of ten delegates to give personalised interviews, presentations and to answer the very questions that were posed. The only complaint we had for the whole day was that the session should be extended from one hour to two! So successful were these two new features that the organisers are rolling them out to other Retail Risk conferences around the world.

Next year’s conference takes place at the same venue on 21st November 2018. With 100% of delegates responding to the exit survey of their experience describing the event as “very good” or better, demand for tickets is sure to be high. So, make sure to pre-register today so that you will have first option of tickets for yourself and your team at least one week before they go on general release.

Join us at Retail Risk – Dubai 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 – Dubai, 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.
