gfn2016 17 18 JUNE with strapline
Welcome to the website for the Global Forum on Nicotine 2016. This was the third conference in the series, held again at the Marriott Hotel, in Warsaw, on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June 2016

This is a multi-stakeholder event and last year had participants from 55 countries. Participants include policy analysts, regulators and standards experts, academics and researchers, parliamentarians, public health professionals, consumer advocates, and makers and distributors of alternative nicotine products – all with an interest in nicotine and its uses.

The agenda for the conference addressed 3 key issues: Evidence, Accountability and Transparency. There was a mixture of plenary, parallel, workshop and satellite sessions, an exhibition of scientific posters, as well as plenty of opportunities to network informally, including during the pre-conference social event and the European Premiere screening of the "Billion Lives" documentary.

Upcoming GFN 2017 Conference website & registration will open in September 2016. We look forward to seeing you again in Warsaw at GFN 2017!
