German Retail Security Network brings world’s biggest Retail Risk Management conference series to Frankfurt

The GRSN has partnered with the world’s biggest retail risk management conference series
to bring Retail Risk – Frankfurt to Germany.

Not only does the event feature international speakers from around the world, but also experts drawn from closer to home; all sharing their insight and expertise with attending delegates free of charge.

Ken Bonhert, Chair of the GRSN, said

“We are delighted to be able to bring the Retail Risk conference to Frankfurt for the benefit of all retailers. Clearly the German market is facing challenges from a number of risk centres and the ability to listen to, question and discuss solutions that have been successfully rolled out elsewhere in the world with experts is simply invaluable to any retail organisation.

What’s more, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the event is completely free for retailers to attend, making this a must-see event in the diary of anyone involved in managing risk for their business.”

Paul Bessant, Founder of Retail Knowledge, owners of the Retail Risk and eRisk conference series commented

“We are delighted to have been invited to Germany by the GRSN. Delegate registrations are already strong indeed. We are looking forward to an excellent turnout for this first Frankfurt conference and to making it an annual feature of our event calendar.

German retailers will have the opportunity to network, exchange information and discuss their toughest challenges all within the commercially safe environment of the conference, which respects commercial sensitivities and confidentiality whilst promoting a vibrant forum in which knowledge can be exchanged and problems solved.

We are indebted to all of our sponsors, but in particular our Title Sponsors Tyco Retail Solutions and Kount, for their generosity in making this packed one-day event free to attend for all retailers.”

Join us at Retail Risk – Frankfurt 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 – Frankfurt, 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.
