New dates for Cold Comfort 2021

We are pleased to announce brand new dates for Cold Comfort which will now take place on 12-13 May 2021.

Transport Portfolio Divisional Director, Craig Donovan says: “Following the announcement from the government that conferences and trade exhibitions can commence from 1 October 2020, our plans for Cold Comfort planned for March 2021, held at the Harrogate Convention Centre, have been at full speed ahead. Sadly however, the venue have confirmed... that the ‘NHS Nightingale Hospital’ will be retained as a contingency until the end of March 2021... We have therefore taken the decision to change the date to 12-13 May 2021.

"Although both this and our Scotland Cold Comfort physical events are postponed until 2021, Cold Comfort itself is continuing to grow in size and scope. We are therefore excited to confirm we are still pushing at full pace for our new initiative this year Cold Comfort Digital Academy." Download the full statement here.

Please feel free to contact one of the team directly for further information.


Our thoughts at present are with those directly affected by Coronavirus. Keep safe and well in the coming weeks.


Provisional 2021 Speakers include:

"I found the Cold Comfort experience to be informative and interesting, with a good balance of different topics and speakers covered, which has provided a good background to help us enhance our winter maintenance service in the future."
