The LPRC has developed the IMPACT Conference to help retailers and their solutions partners better employ research tools to assess the real-world impact their LP efforts have on sales, crime, and loss levels. This year’s theme is Science. Practice. Results. Our aim for this year’s conference is to deliver practical research, rooted in rigorous scientific research methods, to help your team succeed. We believe that a community centered around a scientific approach combined with academic insight will result in an enterprise selling more and losing less.


IMPACT is a two-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. Continuing the format from last
year, Learning Labs 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 a non-lecture format.
  • Variety: Attendees can choose any three Labs to attend, creating a custom learning experience for each
  • Brevity: Learning Labs will be 30 minutes long, leaving participants feeling excited and ready to learn more
    rather than fatigued.
