Conference Vendor and Display Information


The Western Robbery Conference, has been rebranded as the National Robbery Conference, to reflect the growing nationwide attendance to the conference over the last ten years and to encourage new attendance from all corners of the United States and beyond.

The 2019 conference will be held May 29th to May 31st, at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort in Vail, Colorado.

The registration fee of $240.00 includes tuition, conference materials, a CARI Directory and a certificate of completion. Door prizes, donated by many retail businesses, will be given away during breaks.

CARI will provide a continental breakfast daily (courtesy of King Soopers and Safeway), lunch on Wednesday and Thursday (provided by CARI), and dinner at the awards banquet on Wednesday evening (also provided by CARI).

A hospitality suite (sponsored by Coors, 7-11 and 3SI Security Systems), will be open to attendees Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and will provide not only a place to relax after the days activities, but an opportunity to network with robbery investigators and loss prevention personnel from around the country.

The National Robbery Conference is open to all active and retired law enforcement personnel as well as qualified private security representatives (generally retail and bank loss prevention managers). The Conference consists of two and one half days of dynamic classroom instruction provided by experienced law enforcement personnel. Social functions are included to encourage class member interaction and development of professional contacts.
