The last 12 months has seen unprecedented statements from the Public Health community however divisions between academic and public health bodies have never been more polarised or more public.

The E-Cigarette Summit provides a much needed neutral platform to examine the evidence and debate the issues that are dividing scientists, health professionals and policy makers alike.

This year’s e-Cigarette Summit has an unrivaled line-up of speakers representing Public Health agencies, service commissioners and regulatory bodies and provides a unique opportunity to build consensus and help develop informed evidence based policy decisions.  The Summit includes high level briefings, followed by open-floor discussions and debates which will allow key questions to be asked and explored in a balanced and objective environment.

To ensure neutrality, the event is solely funded through individual delegate revenues.  Sponsorship is not accepted. Click here to book your place.
