ATLANTA – April 30, 2015 – From May 3 through May 6, U.S. Security Associates (USA) is exhibiting in the 2015 Retail Asset Protection Conference hosted by the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA). According to RILA, “The biggest names, brightest minds and best in class in retail AP will be at the Retail Asset Protection conference.” USA’s Vice President of Loss Prevention Terry Faircloth considers the conference a can’t-miss event. Several national clients of the security company are among the “who’s who of retail” attending the conference.
The event brings together representatives of all major retail segments, from food and beverage, apparel, and pharmacy to pet supplies, auto supplies, warehouse clubs, and more. The conference takes place at Orlando’s Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, where the retail industry’s top asset protection executives are joining industry partners to hear more than 70 expert speakers, participate in open forum discussions, see the latest solutions featured in the exhibit hall, and network with their peers.
The conference program reflects key priorities of the retail industry, with six breakout session tracks for conference goers to choose from: leadership and development, workplace safety, investigations, audit and analytics, technology and innovation, and operational shrink. The schedule includes 20 hours of educational programming, with featured speakers including loss prevention and asset protection executives from retail industry giants like Target, Wal-Mart, Gap, Best Buy, Lowe’s, and Autozone.
USA’s Director of Loss Prevention Tom Vecchiarelli looks forward to connecting with colleagues and clients in the LP community and to engaging with the industry’s foremost experts through seminars and discussion panels. “The sessions and speakers focus on issues that LP executives are facing every day, with precision-focused strategies and cutting-edge solutions,” remarks Vecchiarelli. “The exhibit hall also has a lot to offer. Visiting other vendors on the expo floor gives us the opportunity to learn more about noteworthy products and services. The RILA Asset Protection Conference is always time well-spent.”
