ACS Announces Security Showcase Shortlist

The Association of Convenience Stores is delighted to announce the line-up of companies that have been chosen to present at the Security Showcase on 21st November at bet365 Stadium in Stoke.

This new event for 2018 will begin by providing an insight into the extent and types of retail crime against the sector and the challenges retailers face in tackling these issues. There will then be presentations from suppliers of crime prevention equipment exploring the latest solutions and how they could benefit retailers and their stores.

The showcase will close with a retailer panel who will provide feedback on the crime prevention equipment showcased.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire, Matthew Ellis has been confirmed to address the Showcase where he will be talking about how he’s tackling crime in his local area.
