Checkpoint Systems Title Sponsor Of Loss Prevention, Auditing And Safety Conference

The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) welcomes Checkpoint Systems Inc., the leading supplier of retail shrink management solutions, as its title sponsor of the 2009 RILA Loss Prevention, Auditing and Safety (LPAS) Conference.

The conference, which takes place May 3–5 in Orlando, Fla., will feature more than 40 educational sessions on topics critical to loss prevention, audit and safety professionals. This year’s event is designed to help retail executives develop strategies that minimize risk and drive performance in a volatile economic environment.

Conference attendees can look forward to learning about top issues facing loss prevention professionals including organized retail crime, shortage analytics, hiring talent and building partnerships within an organization.

“This conference provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity to bring together top leaders in retail asset protection, for general education and networking and to learn about emerging trends and see cutting edge solutions from the vendor community,” said RILA president Sandy Kennedy. “We are delighted to have Checkpoint Systems, a longtime RILA member, as the title sponsor for this year’s Loss Prevention, Auditing and Safety Conference.”

Checkpoint Systems is an $834.2 million multinational manufacturer and marketer of technology-driven shrink management and merchandise visibility solutions. Established in 1969, Checkpoint Systems is the world's leading provider of radio frequency (RF) based loss prevention systems to the $1 trillion global retail industry.

“This year, perhaps more than any other, it is important for retailers to continue to build comprehensive loss prevention programs, and Checkpoint is committed to partnering with them to address their most pressing challenges," said Morag Harmsen, vice president and general manager of customer management for Checkpoint Systems. "Our involvement with RILA is another way in which we can help the retail community gain access to the valuable resources and information that this organization provides, and we are proud to sponsor the 2009 RILA Loss Prevention, Auditing and Safety Conference."

RILA welcomes and encourages exhibitors to attend all the educational sessions alongside the retailer attendees to learn firsthand what potential customers are thinking about; and gain the knowledge needed to maximize shrink reduction, increase productivity, streamline operations and control expenses. RILA’s LPAS Conference is recognized as the most important educational event in loss prevention and asset protection. This year's conference is under the direction of the RILA's Loss Prevention Steering Committee, which is led by Dennis Klein of Abercrombie & Fitch and Libby Rabun of AutoZone.
