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.

Over the years, the European Single market has allowed for pharmaceuticals to be imported and exported freely between member states without the permission of the manufacturers. However, with the arrival of Brexit and guidelines to immanently enforce the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) by 2019, the market for pharmaceutical parallel trade is changing.

Join us as we discuss the latest changes to regulation, their implementation and major court cases in intellectual property influencing distribution practices. We will also be exploring the safety of patients in relation to the surge in pharmaceutical E-commerce and ways in which currency fluctuations are likely to disrupt the flow of drugs to certain countries in the EU and beyond.

With huge interest from leaders in the field, we have worked closely with an expert panel of speakers to present an agenda that is shaping up to be the best Parallel Trade event.
