Leaders in the loss prevention, risk assessment, and security industries plan to gather from February 20–22 for the comprehensive learning opportunity offered by the Innovision 2017 Educational Conference. The event, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale, FL, has a lot planned for its 18th year.
Originally designed to be an end-user conference held every two years, Innovision has changed into an educational event intended to inform and connect industry professionals in security and LP. “This year is the inception of something new: the event has morphed into a conference that goes beyond its original borders,” said Catherine Larouche, senior marketing manager at i3 International. “The industry is transforming, and Innovision will be a reflection of the changes going on in the field.”
Attendees at this year’s event will benefit from roundtable sessions with peers, relevant advice from experienced speakers, and networking opportunities with solution providers. The show may even offer a bit of adventure: “We are putting together our first Craze event during this tradeshow and will host two more Crazes this year at RILA and NRF PROTECT. As usual, attendees can expect to be surprised!” said Larouche.
Although the emerging issues–data breaches, technologies to watch–are likely to receive a fair amount of attention at the event, the educational sessions at the show won’t leave out the traditional challenges faced by security and LP pros. “There will be sessions related to the more traditional side of security: the one where LP reacts to immediate threats endangering staff, customers and the bottom line. You can expect open forums on plans and actions to prevent and react to active shooting and shrink,” said Larouche.
A full roster of experts will be on hand to share their experiences and advice as well. Keynote speakers at Innovision 2017 will include:
- Craig Kielburger, co-founder of the nonprofit WE Charity (formerly known as Free the Children)
- Crystal Kadakia, modern workplace and millennial expert, speaker, and author
- Ken Tencer, CEO of Spyder Works
- Amy K Hutchens, Founder of AmyK Inc.
- Dr. Ashley Lesko, Leader, Square Peg Solutions
A wrap-up reference book of best practices will be available to all attendees after the event has ended. For more information, visit our Events page.
