ARLINGTON, Va. — The Food Marketing Institute here announced that it will hold the first Asset Protection Conference next March for risk management, loss prevention and safety professionals in the supermarket industry.
The new educational conference, which is scheduled for March 14-17, 2010, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dallas, will merge two annual conferences that focused separately on loss prevention, risk management and safety issues.
“Supermarkets have many assets to protect: associates, customers, reputation and property,” said Steve King, director, corporate risk management, Kroger, and chairman of the FMI Risk, Insurance and Safety Management Committee, in a statement. “Combining the two educational conferences into one really makes sense because there is a lot of crossover between the two departments in the industry. The Asset Protection Conference gives us the opportunity to work collaboratively on common issues such as crisis management and incident investigation.”
