UK’s only dedicated event for the cold chain returns
The Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Exhibition, Conference and Awards will return to the East of England Arena in Peterborough from 7-8 September 2021.
Unlike some events, TCS&D 2021 will be keeping it small and safe for exhibitors and visitors. Despite the end of restricted attendance numbers for indoor events being scheduled for late June, TCS&D 2021 will still be capping visitor numbers at 1,000 in September.
The bi-annual TCS&D show will incorporate the ‘Cold Chain Hub’ conference – the programme for which is being devised by the Cold Chain Federation – making the event a fantastic opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and trends in the industry. “After a challenging 12 months for our sector and as we return to a more normal life,” explained Martyn Cogan, exhibition director, “we want TCS&D to deliver a host of tangible benefits to give our visitors a great couple of days. TCS&D will provide an unrivalled opportunity for anyone involved in the temperature controlled supply chain sector to learn and network.”
Although TCS&D (@TCSDShow) will take place after Covid-19 restrictions are scheduled to be lifted, the event will incorporate a number of measures to ensure a Covid-secure environment, including thermal camera checks on arrival, numerous sanitiser stations and wider aisles. “There is plenty of space to spread out at the East of England Arena,” said Martyn Cogan, “and we’ll also be locating more exhibits than ever in the new TCS&D Outdoor Marketplace.”
Ride & Drive returns
The Ride & Drive Experience track in the outside display area will make its return. “This proved hugely popular at the last exhibition,” commented Cogan, “as it gives visitors the best possible opportunity to experience vehicle handling and performance. We are anticipating a wide range of vehicles on display in the outdoor area, including more electric vehicles than ever before.”
Electric vehicle exclusive
The latest exhibitor to sign up to the show, NRG Fleet Services, will be exclusively showcasing the Electra 19t Refrigerated Electric Vehicle at TCS&D 2021. “This is a real coup for the show,” commented Martyn Cogan, “and is certain to attract a great deal of interest.”
The TCS&D show features products and services from right across the cold chain. Exhibitors already signed up for TCS&D 2021 include refrigerated vehicle suppliers Gray & Adams, MAR Cooling Solutions and ABC Trailers Solutions (available for all Schmitz Cargobull requirements); transport refrigeration manufacturers Carrier Transicold and Hubbard Products; cold chain electric vehicle supplier NRG Fleet Services; transport refrigeration service provider Longhurst Refrigeration; diesel-free transport cooling & energy manufacturer Hultsteins; rental & contract hire specialists Prohire and VMS Fleet Management; portable cold storage supplier Seven Refrigeration; supplier of new and used refrigerated vehiclesStockport Truck Centre; commercial vehicle repairers Yaxley Coachworks; protective clothing supplier Goldfreeze; insulated products supplier Polar Thermal Packaging; refrigeration and cooling specialist Star Refrigeration; cold store construction specialist ISD Solutions; automated racking solutions supplier SSI Schaefer; fire protection specialist Wagner Group; software provider Procuro Euro; and logistics recruitment agency Unity Resourcing Solutions.
