SMi Announces the 2017 Cold Chain Distribution Conference and Exhibition is to be Held in London, UK

Cold Chain Distribution 2017 will be a one-stop-shop for all cold chain needs, featuring big pharma and exhibitors from every sector of the cold chain process.

London, United Kingdom, July 03, 2017 --( As the global healthcare industry grows, temperature controlled logistics rapidly evolves along with it. Factors such as the ever-changing regulatory requirements, diverse array of biopharma products entering the markets, and new technology emerging daily, are causing companies to face the challenge of constantly adapting their supply chain processes and staying ahead of the curve.

Responding to the evolution within the industry, SMi is proud to announce the return of its leading 12th annual Cold Chain Distribution event. Returning to London in December, this year's event will remain at the forefront of innovation.
Cold Chain Distribution 2017 will be a one-stop-shop for all cold chain needs, featuring big pharma and exhibitors from every sector of the cold chain process, including material handling, warehousing, construction, supply chain/logistics solutions and transportation providers.

This year’s conference and exhibition will attract key decision makers from retail, foodservice, processing, production, distribution, logistics, and transportation. Delegates will represent frozen, refrigerated, ambient and fresh operations sectors.

For industry suppliers, Cold Chain 2017 will provide a competitive advantage through building brand awareness, expanding audience penetration to all global buyers of temperature-controlled transportation and facilities, and connecting suppliers to key decision makers. Suppliers will be afforded the opportunity to display their products and services on Europe’s leading Cold Chain Distribution stage.

The 12th annual show is the perfect opportunity to spotlight the cold chain industry and its role as a critical component in supplying the world’s ever-growing population – all while maintaining GDP compliance in an ever-changing climate.
