The UK has been battered by storm after storm this winter season, as well as freezing temperatures and snowfalls. Scotland has tackled some of the worst of it. However, even storm clouds have a silver lining. Every time the weather gets worse, the winter service sector learns more, which means this year’s Cold Comfort Scotland is a must-attend. 

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.   

Previous speakers have included:

- Brendan Frankgate from Glasgow City Council will address community engagement  
- Matthew Lugg of WSP will review 10 years of extreme weather and government responses
- George Lee of HTMA will look at integrating data to support better winter service
- Improvement Service representative will provide an insight into using data and spatial analysis to help winter service.
