APEX is an in-person, executive‑only event that brings together asset protection leaders from across the country and abroad. Designed to be intimate in size to encourage more consequential interaction, participants have the opportunity to foster meaningful dialogue and conceptualize actionable strategies. APEX ensures high levels of collaboration and engagement through interactive sessions driven by expert facilitators. Attendees can expect educational sessions, idea exchanges, vibrant debate, and collaboration geared toward enhancing executive skill sets and strengthening long-term relationships.
Each year, asset protection and operational executives gather in Nashville for an in-depth look into a plethora of topics that affect day‑to‑day operations, such as shrink reduction, customer and employee safety, operational challenges, and executive leadership. Each APEX attendee can take advantage of relevant panel sessions, led by industry experts that feature the practical application of the latest technologies, trends, and methodologies. In addition, APEX provides valuable insight on finding smart solutions for organizations of all sizes.
Focused on Top Industry Challenges
APEX is specifically tailored for asset protection professionals looking to take on the highest-priority challenges in the industry. Tackling timely industry topics, conference attendees gain a firsthand look into how other retail executives from across the industry are addressing similar challenges. Executive attendees can expect a three-day collaborative event, in early fall, that provides insights and knowledge through fresh, relevant content.
The APEX conference maintains an Executive Advisory Council comprised of retail executives to help create the most valuable content for discussion and the exchange of ideas. Executive Advisory Council members consist of top asset protection leadership representing a variety of retail and food service verticals from across the industry to help provide both unique and collective ideas and perceptions to best serve the needs and interests of conference attendees. This helps ensure the APEX conference assembles the most forward-thinking asset protection executives and solution providers to create a powerful platform of learning, networking, collaboration, and innovation. Attendees describe the experience as remarkable, educational, eye-opening, inspiring, and peppered with surprise celebrity appearances. With insights on solutions, this is clearly the place for those looking to bridge the gap between what’s now and what’s next.
APEX refuses to follow the same path as traditional exhibit hall formats. Instead, they want to provide a more impactful experience for solution providers and attendees alike. Solution providers have the opportunity to foster relationships with influential loss prevention and asset protection leaders by connecting through the collaborative agenda. The goal is to bring people together in hopes of developing long-lasting partnerships.
There is no need to do any exceptional planning when preparing for the APEX event. Whether it is hotel bookings, breakfast, lunch, dinners, or a signature networking event, it’s all included in the planned programming itinerary. Plus, attendees can earn continuing education units at the same time by simply participating in the different sessions included in the event.
