Paul Bessant
Retail Knowledge

In 2022 we celebrate our 20th anniversary! Join our Founder Paul Bessant at Sydney on 24th February for a global perspective on evolving Retail Risk over the last two decades…

Now the biggest risk management conference series in the world, Retail Risk conferences began 20 years ago as the Retail Fraud Show.

The idea behind the conference was to promote collaboration between retailers, as weaknesses in the system of one retailer would be used to learn how to exploit all retailers using that system.

Now renamed the Retail Risk conference, the event is designed for sharing experiences whilst respecting commercial sensitivities, so that retailers can work together in fighting crime – and dealing with all the other risks faced by the business world.

For example, throughout the pandemic when normal in-person conferences were suspended, Retail Knowledge hosted virtual ‘coffee mornings’ with risk leaders who were able to discuss and compare strategies in real time as the crisis unfolded.

To mark Retail Risk’s 20th anniversary its Founder, Paul Bessant, will present to Retail Risk – Sydney with a unique global view of the risks faced by Retail, past present and future.

Twenty years in the making, this is a presentation not to be missed!

A message from the Chair of Retail Risk 2022, Austin Craddock

Austin Craddock
National Security Manager
Coles Supermarkets

“The presentations are relevant and the technology is retail loss-specific but, best of all, our profession comes together and we learn as much from each other as we do from what’s on stage.”

I am honoured and excited to be hosting the upcoming Retail Risk – Sydney 2022. In only a few years, Retail Risk has established itself as the premier event for all Retail Loss Prevention professionals and all those working within this space. And why is this? It’s simple really; this is our event, where the presentations, demonstrations and networking are all aimed specifically at us.

Retail Risk is all about the world of “LP”. The presentations are relevant and the technology is retail loss-specific but, best of all, our profession comes together and we learn as much from each other as we do from what’s on stage. It’s certainly been a strange couple of years since the last Sydney event and I’m very much looking forward to seeing you all there.
