  • Best practice on using CCTVs by Stuart Ward, Police Scotland
  • Tips on cutting shop energy bills by Eva Rainey, Business Energy Scotland
  • Deposit Returns Scheme panel discussion

The Scotland District has organised a packed programme for their Business Event. We have guest expert speakers on topics such as the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS), retail crime and energy costs.

DRS is set to launch on Wednesday, August 16, 2023, in Scotland. DRS has been successful across the world to encourage people to recycle more. The scheme has raised several questions and concerns among retailers who will act as return point operators for consumers.

We have a range of DRS experts available to answer some of the bigger questions surrounding the topic during a panel discussion at the Fed’s Scottish business event. The session will also provide the opportunity for our members to ask questions to the panel. The event will cover the Government plans to ban disposable vapes and force shops to hide alcohol.

Eva Rainey from Business Energy Scotland will be speaking at the event, giving some guidance on how retailers can save on their shop energy bills.

The event will also include a presentation from Stuart Ward, National Designing Out Crime Manager from Police Scotland. Stuart will present the need for operational requirements for CCTV, common mistakes and how to resolve, general operational advice and some examples of good and bad practice, including legislation myth busting. A wee overview of some of the new technology available and some time for questions.

There will be opportunities to meet and network with other retailers and some of our trade partners.

This event is open to both members and non-members who are independent retailers.
