Invitation only: International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations General Assembly
 
Formed in June 2017, INNCO is the collective voice for 33 nicotine consumer organisations in thirty one countries across six continents who each recognise that there are safer ways to enjoy nicotine consumption than tobacco smoking. INNCO aims to represent the views of consumers in promoting safer use of nicotine and to advocate for effective and proportionate regulation of safer nicotine products and their use. This includes engagement with international health, regulatory and public health organisations concerned with nicotine consumption, to assure that consumers are effectively and equally represented as stakeholders.

Open to all: International Symposium on Nicotine Technology (ISoNTech)
 
The nicotine delivery landscape is rapidly changing. ISoNTech has been designed in response to this, to showcase the latest technological advances in alternative nicotine delivery systems, next generation devices, and the science behind them. Given some concerns expressed about the new products, it is also important that we showcase the measures employed to test and assure quality control in their manufacture and regulation.
Developers, manufactures and distributors are invited to demonstrate new products and discuss their design and development. The aim is to present a wide range of alternative delivery systems, including e-cigarettes, heat-not-burn and oral tobaccos, as well as ancillary technologies involved. ISoNTech 19 will take place on 13 June 2019, within a dedicated exhibition area, adjacent to GFN19
