SMi present’s its 15th annual Parallel Trade virtual conference, taking place virtually on the 22nd and the 23rd March 2021. As the only 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 2021 event will be more significant than ever before due to the transition period after Brexit coming to an end this year. As such, the UK will no longer be part of the EU free market. This will mean increased medicines prices, reduced access to some specialist drugs and greater risk of supply chain shortages. In a post-Brexit environment, exhaustion of rights will cease to apply to the UK, making import and export a costly business and in a worst-case scenario could effectively kill parallel distribution.

This conference will bring together industry experts to discuss the challenges and drivers of the industry, including the EU regulatory landscape and the impact of the FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive). The conference will also provide global insights on Parallel trade and will reflect on key takeaways for other member states.
