Join us at Retail Risk – Melbourne 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 – Melbourne, 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.

Retail Risk – Melbourne 2017

%22The conference was sharp in its delivery and not padded out, which I enjoy, and not heavily influenced by sponsors and their own presentations. Roundtable was good, with the only issue being that it overlayed another speaker, but that's expected being that its a one-dayer. Enjoyed and will return next year.%22
