SMi's Cold Chain Distribution Conference and Exhibition took Europe by storm last year and set tongues wagging! We are proud to announce the 10th annual Cold Chain Distribution Conference returns to London this Dec!

A fantastic networking event Delegate 2014

With the total size of the healthcare cold chain logistic services market expected to expand further from its current figures of £4.3 billion to nearly £6.9 billion by 2016*, we're even more excited to present SMi's 10th Annual Cold Chain Distribution Conference and Exhibition on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th December 2015 at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, London, UK.

The 2015 meeting will focus on temperature-controlled distribution strategy for ambient biologics product and reach to emerging markets.
