Less Than Four Weeks to Go Until Europe’s Only Parallel Trade Conference Taking Place in London


SMi presents its 13th annual Parallel Trade conference happening next month. The highly anticipated event provides the perfect platform for industry experts to come together and share perspectives on the practice of parallel trade.

London, United Kingdom, January 09, 2019 --(PR.com)-- The agenda for this year’s conference will hold a particular place of significance due to Brexit and the UK officially leaving the EU on the 29th of March 2019.

Furthermore, the FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive) will be coming into effect in February 2019. This conference will give companies affected the perfect opportunity to discuss and consider the impact that the FMD implementation will have on their practices and on the market.

Here is a quick look at the panel discussions on this year’s programme on the Future of Parallel Trade and Supply Chain Distribution:

The impact of parallel trade on the supply chain
The impact on pharmaceutical companies through the economic actions as a result
Future regulations and implementations which will impact existing models
The speculated effect of these changes within the market

Led by Felipe Florez-Arango, CFO, Allergan
Vimal Unewal, Senior Manager In-Market Supply, Ferring Pharmaceuticals

The full two-day agenda and full speaker line up is available on the event website at http://www.parallel-trade.com/pr3.

In addition, attendees of the conference will hear from Sigve Sivertsen, Head of Parallel Trade from Apotek Hjärtat AB. Read a snippet of their interview below:

What do you see as the greatest hurdle to the parallel trade industry as at now?
“Two main hurdles currently include the Implementation of FMD on 9th feb and the outcome of the total Brexit agreement. The size of the hurdles and the impact it has on the parallel industry is very subject to change.”.

Where do you see the field heading over the next few years?
“Within parallel industry we will see more and more biological products coming into the parallel trade industry, more and more expensive products coming into the different markets so maybe volume will go down but the total turnover will increase.”
