Join Experts Within Supply and Demand at Europe’s Only Parallel Trade Conference 2020 in London

SMi presents Europe's leading 14th annual Parallel Trade conference, taking place in London on the 4th-5th of February 2020. This event provides the platform for industry experts from both sides of the coin to come together and share perspectives on the practice of parallel trade.

London, United Kingdom, January 30, 2020 --( The size of the EU market in pharmaceutical distribution is around €5bn, and the UK accounts for 22.7% of this figure. The sector has an annual import value of around £1bn, while the annual export figure approximates £600m.

The 2020 event will hold a particular place of significance on shortages of medicines, current and ongoing challenges posed by Parallel Trading, potential implications of Brexit and IP exhaustion rights. This conference will give companies affected the perfect opportunity to discuss and consider the impact of the FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive) implementation on their practices and on the market.
