According to the Centre for Retail Research*, the cost of retail crime is escalating and shrinkage (stock loss caused by crime, waste and error) rose to 1.37% of sales in 2011 compared to 1.29% in 2010. Again, customer theft was the highest cause of shrinkage equating to £2146 million with employee theft amounting to £1765 million.

To combat fraud, retailers are committed to investing in new technologies and solutions and spent £1019 million on security and loss prevention in 2011. In order to source the very best security and loss prevention solutions, the Retail Fraud Conference remains the must-attend event for the industry. As the largest retail fraud and loss prevention conference in Europe, the Retail Fraud Conference remains the definitive event for showcasing the latest developments in reducing retail fraud, attracting the very best vendors, speakers and retail delegates. Last year’s conference attracted over 550 delegates including 391 retailers.

The show will be opened by the Minister for Crime Prevention, Lord Henley, and the speaker programme will have an international flavour with representatives from Sears and Printemps. In addition, there will be speakers from River Island, Iceland, CIFAS, FaceWatch.
