TCS&D Conferences Break the Ice on Big Issues

TCS&D Conferences Break the Ice on Big Issues

This year’s free-to-attend Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Show conference programme is packed with cool customers, and offers the chance for delegates to grill a panel of industry leaders on the challenges facing the sector.

The event – held on 16-17 September at the Peterborough Arena – will also feature more than 100 exhibitors supplying products and services for the perishable product supply chain, including big names such as Gray & Adams, Krone Trailers UK, Thermo King, Jungheinrich UK and SSI Schaefer.

The conferences, held at the event’s 50-seater Seminar Theatre, sponsored by Carrier Transicold, will take place on a first-come, first-served basis, and do not require delegates to register.

Opening day one, Brian Young, Chief Executive of the British Frozen Food Federation, will offer his insight into the industry’s key trends, and explore the rise of home shopping. Later, CleanEarth Commercial Director Kevin McCormick details how renewable energy and targeting carbon offset can save on bills.

An F-Gas masterclass led by key executives, including Sainsbury’s Operations Support Manager Gary King, will dive into the challenges facing operators since the new regulations came into effect on 1 January 2015, while a panel of industry leaders will round out the day with a question and answer session.

The panel, which features speakers from earlier sessions and judges from the TCS&D Awards, which also take place during the two-day show, will discuss many pressing issues, including the future of transport refrigeration – and delegates are being encouraged to raise their hands and guide the discussion.

An in-depth industry update opens day two’s conferences, while later on a workshop on F-Gas regulations builds on the previous day’s discussions, as the race to find alternative refrigerants hots up.

As the day continues, Dearman’s Deputy Chief Executive Michael Ayres will detail the company’s zero-emission transport refrigeration system, which harnesses liquid nitrogen to deliver cost savings.

Additional conferences will be announced in the coming weeks.
