This year’s Fraud Awards, sponsored by WIS International, was a sell-out success…
Hosted by Retail Knowledge after the day’s Retail Risk – Leicester conference, the Fraud Awards marked the climax of nine months of planning, nominations, submissions, judging and organisation.
Celebrating the best of retail risk and loss prevention, the evening provided a unique opportunity for the industry to recognise the retailers, teams, vendors and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry in 2017.
Once assembled, diners enjoyed an excellent meal, with free flowing champagne and wine before the Awards themselves kicked off at around 10.00pm.
Paul Bessant, Founder of Retail Knowledge introduced comedian Mark Maier. Having hosted the Awards since 2015, Mark is quickly becoming to the Fraud Awards what Terry Wogan became to the Eurovision Song contest! Mark had the audience in stitches as he gently poked fun at various groups, with few brands being spared! A terrific precursor to the Awards themselves…
This year saw the addition of some exciting new categories and a greater number of entries from retailers and vendors based in both the UK and overseas than ever before. In fact 2017 is probably the most hotly contested Fraud Awards to date.
