The event will include a trade stand exhibition where industry leading companies are headlining their services, many of which are based around technology and innovation in the fight against fraud.

"We are now into our fourth anti-fraud conference and it's become a landmark date in the industry's calendar. The conference has firmly established itself as the must-go-to event for counter-fraud professionals.

"I want to thank and congratulate the City Council's award-winning Fraud Investigation Service who instigated the conference in 2016 and who continue to organise it every year. The Service continues to grow with a proven track record in uncovering fraud not only in Oxford, but also for the other councils and organisations both within and outside of Oxfordshire. They are continuing proof of the value of the City Council's decision to invest in fraud prevention and provide a service that is second to none."
