The Summit will take place at The Georgetown Marriott Hotel, in Washington, DC on Monday, May 8, 2017. View the program at www.e-cigarette-summit.com/usa.
E-Cigarette Summit includes high level briefings from policy, scientific and health experts and encourages interaction through panel debates and open floor discussions. Questions will be explored in a balanced and objective environment allowing attendees to build their knowledge and share their viewpoints.
2017 will be a watershed year for electronic cigarettes as new regulations come in to effect across the US and many other countries. These first attempts to regulate an entirely novel product category will set the agenda for decades to come and is likely to be viewed as a pivotal era in both tobacco control and combustible tobacco use in the future.
Good regulation and policy is essential to ensure that the balance of benefits to risks for consumers and the broader public health is as positive as possible. How far regulation has to go to deliver these goals can only be informed by well-structured research and balanced analysis and communication of evidence. The E-Cigarette Summit has a single aim of facilitating respectful dialogue and thoughtful analysis of the latest evidence in context of public health concerns.
There is no doubt that e-cigarettes remain one of the most controversial public health issues of our time and have created unprecedented divisions within long standing professional alliances across tobacco control, public health and scientific communities. The E-Cigarette Summit provides a much needed neutral platform to understand the issues that lie behind these differing perspectives and policy positions and explore how to balance the opportunity of e-cigarettes while remaining responsive to the potential risks.
To ensure neutrality, the event is solely funded through individual delegate revenues and sponsorship from commercial or non-profit entities is not accepted. To book your place please go to www.e-cigarette-summit.com/usa
