VIRTUAL EVENT

3 - 4 DEC 2020

WELCOME
THE VIRTUAL E-CIGARETTE SUMMIT

Earlier this year, we regrettably had to cancel the USA Summit in Washington and then the November Summit in London, due to Covid restrictions.

While it isn’t possible to welcome you in person, transitioning the Summit event online has given us the opportunity to create an event without geographical borders, combining the most compelling content on the science, evidence, policy and public health from an unparalleled line up of the leading scientists and researchers from across the globe.

We are delighted to publish the full agenda for The Virtual E-Cigarette Summit which will take place December 3-4.  While we would ideally love for everyone to be able to join us for the live event, we appreciate that multiple time zones and challenging schedules means that joining the Summit for the duration in real time may be difficult, so we have designed the agenda to work as individual sessions which can be viewed on demand from December 1st.   The Panel Debates and Q&A sessions will be live during their scheduled times (See Agenda) but you will have the opportunity to pose questions in advance and watch back later.

We hope that the Virtual Summit will provide a welcoming focal point to grapple with the challenging questions posed by  e-cigarettes and new novel nicotine products.  Although Covid, Brexit and the US Presidential Election dominate our news media, there is a considerable amount of change happening in the public health, policy and regulatory environments related to tobacco, e-cigarettes and harm reduction.

For decades, the known harms from smoking and combustible products has aligned public health and tobacco control colleagues behind a known “enemy”.  The emergence of less harmful alternatives has resulted in a heated debate that continues to divide scientists, health professionals and policy makers alike.  The E-Cigarette Summit has a single aim of facilitating respectful dialogue and thoughtful analysis of the latest research and exploring how the evidence should be interpreted, to deliver the most effective health strategies to reduce smoking related death and disease.  We hope that you can join us.
