Registration Now Open for the 10th Annual Clinical Trial Logistics Conference and Exhibition

SMi Group reports (2016.01.20 – London, UK): Registration is now live for the 10th annual Clinical Trial Logistics Conference and Exhibition on 23-24 May at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London, UK

London, United Kingdom, January 23, 2016 --( SMi Group proudly presents the 10th annual Clinical Trial Logistics Conference and Exhibition in London.

According to recent market research the clinical trial supplies industry is expected to reach $1.2Billion by 2020*, with the logistics and distribution services segment accounting for the largest share of the market. This rapid market growth is aligned with a significant change in the regulatory landscape with the implementation of Annex 15 of the Good Manufacturing Practice in Autumn 2015. Moreover, as the New EU Clinical Trials Regulation nears execution, all parties in the clinical supply chain are sure to be affected.

SMi’s 10th Annual Clinical Trial Logistics event provides the perfect platform to raise and discuss the challenges associated with these changes featuring key updates from the MHRA and insights from leading pharmaceutical companies including Daiichi Sankyo, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Norgine, Lundbeck, Takeda, etc. Visit the event website for more information at

Key topics will explore the logistical challenges in emerging markets; the latest innovations made on maintaining temperature in shipment; the visibility in the supply chain to fight counterfeiting; cost-reduction; maintaining a successful contractor relationship; and integration of forecasting and supply planning to an efficient clinical supply chain.
