In response to the continuing spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, RILA will cancel the 2020 Retail Asset Protection Conference scheduled for May 3-6, 2020 in Grapevine, Texas. This decision reflects our commitment to the safety and well-being of participating executives, current government-imposed states of emergency and emergency government regulations, and the sound guidance and strong admonitions against travel and large gatherings from federal, state and local public health authorities. It is simply impossible for us the hold the conference as scheduled.
Retail executives, as well as exhibitors and sponsors currently registered for the conference will have the option to transfer their registration to 2021 or receive a full refund.
While RILA is committed to providing top-flight education and networking opportunities to the retail asset protection community, at this time, our primary focus is providing retailers with the services and resources they need to respond effectively to the COVID-19 outbreak.
RILA is the US trade association for leading retailers. We convene decision-makers, advocate for the industry, and promote operational excellence and innovation. Our aim is to elevate a dynamic industry by transforming the environment in which retailers operate.
