8th Global Forum on Nicotine
Liverpool & Online: 17 - 18 June 2021
We are pleased to announce that the eighth edition of the conference will take place in Liverpool, on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th June, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, which is situated in the heart of the redevelopment of the city, on the banks of the River Mersey.
The theme for #GFN21 is ‘the Future for Nicotine’ and will address some of the concerns prompted by recent reviews and reports that will have an impact in different parts of the world, as well implications for discussions at the postponed FCTC COP 9 meeting, later this year.
Watch on GFN•TV...
With COVID restrictions preventing many people from travelling and participating in the conference, we will also be broadcasting the proceedings live, via our new GFN•TV platform, to ensure that nobody misses out.
Building on the experience from producing last year’s conference online, we aim to improve your experience watching from the comfort of your home (or office) and participating by asking questions during extended Q&A and panel discussion sessions.
... or attend in person, in Liverpool
We will soon launch registration for those who are able to attend the conference in person. The registration fee to attend the event in person will be £60 (inclusive of VAT).
Presentations, multimedia, interaction...
There will also be opportunities to chat online and to have your own short presentations (‘GFN Fives’) posted on in advance of the event on the #GFN website and available to view throughout. The presentations will remain available on the website after the conference as a permanent record of the proceedings.
A number of the formal presentations in the programme will also be posted on the event website in advance, with the aim of providing the maximum time for presenters to engage in live hosted panel discussions and debates, which will provide opportunities for participants to comment and ask questions online.
