National Retail Federation (NRF) 2016 Recap

National Retail Federation (NRF) 2016 Recap

Written by Chelsea Barry July 14, 2016

June 14-15 The Zellman team took the trip down to Philadelphia for the National Retail Federation’s Annual Loss Prevention Conference.

This year The Zellman Group, LLC decided to take a different approach to NRF with a ‘walk in the park’ themed booth. Equipped with lawn furniture, foliage, and full on grassy turf, The Zellman booth was the place to kick back, relax and learn about loss prevention. Another new addition to this year’s NRF booth was Wallie, our portable interface. Not only could one learn about Zellman’s many services through Wallie, but also charge one’s cell phone and take selfies with Wallie’s fun photo booth feature.

This year The Zellman group was a Platinum sponsor of NRF, sponsoring Tuesday’s Welcome Reception and First Timer’s Reception, the Grand Finale and Reception, Exhibitor Big !deas, Thursday’s Food Sector Appreciation Breakfast, and ORC/Investigators’ Network and Law Enforcement Breakfast Meeting.

Not only was Zellman a major sponsor of NRF, but also a speaker at the expo. CEO, Stuart Levine spoke with Fort Lee Police Captain Patrick Kissane and John Shanks, Law Enforcement Relationship Manager on the importance of ORC investigations. Their session, ‘ORC Beyond the Investigation’ focused on further developing law enforcement relationships with LP, understanding asset forfeiture, and how Zellman can maximize ORC recovery.

VP of Operations, Lauren Bridgeo and Director of ORC Recovery, Bill Ramos also spoke in LPNN’s Live Digital Conference at NRF called, ‘From LP Executive to Service Provider; Why is this important to the retail community,’ focusing on the transition from retail to service provider and the benefits of the relationship between the two.

All and all it was an exciting and memorable NRF for everyone at The Zellman Group. We look forward to next year’s expo and seeing everyone again.
