CRANFORD, N.J., (April 6, 2017)CONTROLTEK, an emerging leader in retail product protection, will throw a Mardi Gras-themed party at the Bourbon Street in New Orleans for loss prevention professionals attending the RILA Asset Protection Conference.  The event will be held at the Bourbon Cowboy on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 starting at 7:30 p.m.

“We want to show appreciation to our friends and partners in the retail industry,” said Rhett Asher, director of business development at CONTROLTEK.  “So we are throwing a party at a really fun venue that we booked together with our friends from Nedap, Cap Index, Protos and InstaKey.  There will be drinks, food, great friends, and of course Mardi Gras beads.  The conference itself is all business, but after hours why not make it fun?”

During the regular conference hours, CONTROLTEK will launch a new product: an alarming EAS tag with an adjustable-length lanyard.  “This is a first in our industry – a dual-alarm tag with a lanyard that can be easily changed based on the needs of a particular store or particular product,” said Steve Sell, vice president of global sales and marketing at CONTROLTEK.  “Whether the tag for a particular product needs a lanyard of a few inches or a couple of feet, the store associates will be able to easily change the lanyard themselves, eliminating the need to purchase additional tags.”

The new tag will be displayed at CONTROLTEK’s booth 424 at the RILA conference, along with other retail loss prevention solutions such as overhead RFID readers and tamper-evident cash transport packaging.
