SMi Presents the 14th Annual Conference: Parallel Trade 2020

February 4, 2020 - February 5, 2020

Exploring the dynamics, legalities and hurdles in a period of transition for Parallel Trade

SMi presents Europe’s leading 14th annual Parallel Trade conference, taking place in London on the 4th-5th of February 2020. As the only B2B parallel trade conference in Europe, this event provides the perfect platform for industry experts from both sides of the coin to come together and share perspectives on the practice of parallel trade.

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.

Furthermore, the FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive) will be coming into effect in February 2020. 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.
