ALTO Attends the LPRC IMPACT Conference in Gainesville, FL Oct 2-4

ALTO is participating in the Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) IMPACT conference,  a two-plus day program designed to help participants better understand how they can use research approaches to help reduce crime and loss, and increase sales. Each session is designed to provide value, education and participation.

The conference will be held October 2nd through October 4th, on the campus of the University of Florida at the J Wayne Reitz Union located at 686 Museum Road in Gainesville, FL.

This year’s LPRC Impact program consists of presentations, panel discussions and Learning Labs – which is a shift from the format of past years, where yearly research results were presented on the main IMPACT stage as one long, lecture style presentation.  This new learning labs format will focus heavily on:

Interactivity: Each learning lab occurs in a smaller room and includes interactive app and stage content that engages the audience in its own unique format.

Variety: Attendees can choose any three labs to attend, creating a custom learning experience for each individual.

Brevity: Learning labs are 25 minutes long, leaving participants feeling excited and ready to learn more rather than fatigued.

In addition, attendees have the opportunity to work in teams to apply the research approaches to current loss issues with the help of expert facilitators. Each team then makes a short presentation to demonstrate the research designs they developed.
