New date announced for Cold Comfort Scotland 2021

After consultation with Transport Scotland, the NWSRG and other major winter service stakeholders, Cold Comfort Scotland will now take place as a physical event on Thursday 22 April 2021 at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel, Falkirk.

Transport Portfolio Divisional Director, Craig Donovan says: “For over 30 years, Cold Comfort has never missed a year and to do so completely would be a real shame. For this reason, the team are proud to announce a new virtual initiative that will be launched on 21 September 2020, called ‘Cold Comfort Digital Academy.” Details of the new Cold Comfort Digital Academy programme, speaker places, how to get involved and how to register to view this exclusive content will be communicated throughout the summer.

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


  • The event has gone from strength to strength over the last six years and has built up a strong reputation as a vital source of learning and networking. Cold Comfort Scotland is the only conference and exhibition north of the border dedicated to professionals, engineers, decision-makers and leading private sector partners in the winter service sector. As such it is not only the best place to hear the latest news, insights and case studies about how to manage the road network at times of freezing and extreme weather, but it is also the best networking event in the calendar, supporting collaborative learning and best practice sharing.
