The conference is 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 program consists of presentations, panel discussions and Learning Labs. Shifting from the format of past years, where yearly research results were presented on the main IMPACT stage as one long, lecture style presentation, our learning labs this year will focus heavily on:
- Interactivity: Each learning lab will occur in a smaller room and will include interactive app and stage content that will engage 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 will be 25 minutes long, leaving participants feeling excited and ready to learn more rather than fatigued.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to work in teams to apply the research approaches to current loss issues with the help of expert facilitators. Each team will make a short presentation to demonstrate the research designs they developed.
