Driving technology and change in the winter sector

The 29th Annual Cold Comfort conference and exhibition returns to Harrogate on 13th to 14th May 2020.

Cold Comfort has been at the heart of the UK winter service sector for over 25 years and remains the only conference in the UK focused on delivering insight and best practice in the winter service sector. 

"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."
