LONDON - Nov. 7, 2019 - PRLog -- SMi Group is delighted to announce the return of the successful Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference for its 22nd year on 30th and 31st March 2020 at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London.

Antibiotics have long been one of the most important pharmaceuticals for maintaining public health, however, there has been a recent pressing need for significant progress within the industry, mainly due to indiscriminate use of antibiotics which has caused bacteria to become resistant to colistin, carbapenems,  3rd and 4th generation cephalosporins.

This year, the two-day agenda will focus on novel drugs and approaches, highlighting non-traditional and traditional therapies that provide an innovative means to tackle the continued rise of antibiotic resistance, while placing significant emphasis on the much-needed support for these innovations.

For those interested in attending, there is an early bird offer with a £400 saving for bookings made by 29th November 2019, visit to register.
