Conference Documentation: 10th Annual Parallel Trade

SMi's premier 10th Annual Parallel Trade for Pharma returns to London on 8-9 Feb 2016 after 9 successful years in the running!

Parallel distribution market in 2015 has been an interesting year: foreign exchange fluctuations, Greek crisis, tightened export control, legal battles on trademarks and counterfeit medicines. These, in addition to many other factors, have shifted the European market dynamics significantly.

Market participants continue to innovate new strategies to ensure revenue stream, but more importantly compliant of safety and accessibility of drugs for patients. The pressure of uncertainty is prompting industry colleagues to rethink and reassess their current supply chain models.

What new opportunities will present to parallel distribution in 2016? How should pharma and manufacturers perfect their sales and supply chain forecast? Will the EU Falsified Medicine Directive in 2018 reassure patient safety?

This is the only industry meeting with 80+ selected senior leaders in parallel trade to discuss upcoming trends and share best practices. Join us today to keep abreast and stay ahead of competition!
