The Retail Asset Protection Conference brings community back together this August.

2020 has taught us many things, among them is that the industry is stronger and better when we come together to share and collaborate. Faced with unprecedented challenges over the past year, the retail asset protection community has demonstrated unparalleled leadership, an unwavering commitment to sharing best practices, and a steadfast desire to listen and learn from each other. RILA’s 2021 in-person event will focus on lessons learned, and how to take those lessons and build on them for future success 
 
Our educational sessions will cut to the core, with case studies, deep dives, insight sessions, keynotes, and general sessions that will give you actionable takeaways and insights. Coming together as an industry is imperative for our growth and continued support of each other.

There is another exciting change to share! The 2021 conference will be co-located with LINK: The Retail Supply Chain Conference. You will still experience the full Asset Protection Conference, with the best educational content the industry has to offer, AP executive networking, and an exhibit hall filled with emerging technology, but with MORE. MORE cutting-edge solutions in the Expo Experience, MORE high-level keynote speakers, and MORE surprises along the way!
