Cold Comfort 2016

For a quarter of a century Cold Comfort has been helping drive the debate at the heart of the winter service sector. The 2016 edition, will be no different. Cold Comfort remains the only specialist conference dedicated to the winter service sector and is an ideal networking opportunity for all professionals working in the industry. As ever the Cold Comfort programme will be a mix of interesting and thought-provoking technical presentations, case studies, debates and learning sessions.

 The 2016 conference programme will draw on the latest thinking, debate and discussion in the industry. It will focus once again on helping local authorities and their private sector partners to become more effective and efficient at delivering winter service across the UK through assessing performance from the previous few winters and delivering presentations on the latest approaches to best practice in the industry. Once again the event will attempt to become even more interactive with a number of detailed break-out sessions and, for the first time, feature a live mock court case.

Also new is the Cold Comfort Winter Service Innovation Hub which will be positioned on the exhibition floor, giving companies the chance to present their latest innovations and developments as well as a  chance for delegates to hear from speakers with experience of delivering winter in the airport, railway and facilities sectors.

The exhibition will once again feature the very latest in winter service technology, products, services and concepts.
