The Consumer Goods Council (CGC) South Africa and Technews Publishing (publisher of Hi-Tech Security Solutions) have announced they will jointly host a retail security conference early in 2008. The conference, titled Retail Risk 2008, will be held in Cape Town on 26 February, in Durban on 28 February and in Johannesburg on 4 March.
CGC and Technews Publishing both have extensive knowledge of the security risks facing the retail environment today as well as the related solutions. By jointly hosting this conference, they aim to provide delegates with real-world, practical solutions to assist in securing their businesses.
The Consumer Goods Council has initiated the Crime Prevention Programme (CPP), a concerted industry effort to reduce crime and losses in the wider retail industry. The CPP is instrumental in the development of best practices and setting industry standards for retail crime prevention.
Retail, forecourt and distribution business owners and managers, as well as retail and distribution security/risk managers would be well advised to attend and discover what risks their organisations face and what solutions are available today.
"We have secured a panel of speakers respected across the industry for their expertise and market knowledge," says Vivienne Dorrington, CEO of Technews Publishing. "The presentations will not simply be a forum for a sales pitch, but will be focused on providing attendees with real knowledge they can immediately apply in their organisations."
Following the presentations, vendors will be able to demonstrate their solutions in an exhibition area, where further networking and information exchange can take place. This will make the conference an excellent opportunity to network among peers working in the same industry and experiencing the same security risks.
Apart from the networking experience, all attendees will receive a CD with the presentations and associated white papers for further research. In addition, there will also be white papers and additional information on the CD from companies that could not be afforded the opportunity to present due to time constraints.
Retail Risk 2008 will provide delegates with a strategic overview of retail risk trends globally and in South Africa. It will also cover global best practices in dealing practically with retail risk and security, while examining a real-world implementation of security technologies, solutions and services.
The cost of the conference, refreshments, lunch and the research material is R1450 per delegate (VAT included). A 10% discount is available for bookings made and paid for by 30 November 2007. Group bookings for three or more delegates also qualify for a 10% discount.
