Virtual platform for cold chain conference


28 September 2021

The 7th IIR International Conference on Sustainability and the Cold Chain will be held from 11-13 April next year as a virtual event, with the aim of allowing even more delegates to take part in the topical conference.

The event will explore cold chain innovation, developments in refrigeration technology and design, and examine what is being done to build a sustainable cold chain to address key UN sustainable development goals. 

Dr Andy Pearson, chairman of the planning committee, said: “Challenges and opportunities facing sustainability and the cold chain can only be successfully addressed with a worldwide approach - it therefore seemed appropriate to organise an online conference, which will allow delegates from all over the world to take part. We all look forward to finding new ways to tackle the issues we’re facing, and an online conference is an ideal platform to hear about novel and innovative solutions.”
