for the Global Forum on Nicotine's 10th edition in Warsaw from 21 - 24 June 2023
Welcome to the Media Centre!
Thank you for your interest in the only international conference to focus on the role of safer nicotine products that help people switch from smoking, in an approach known as tobacco harm reduction. The conference theme this year is 'Tobacco harm reduction - the next decade.' Safer nicotine products include vapes (e-cigarettes), nicotine pouches, oral tobaccos such as Swedish snus, and heated tobacco products. This is a rapidly evolving area, with many new non-combustible products emerging over the past ten to fifteen years. It's a topic that is of significant interest to audiences worldwide, as the toll of death and disease from combustible tobacco continues to mount, and as governments and consumers adapt to developments in safer nicotine products.
The organisers of the Global Forum on Nicotine encourage participation from media representatives both onsite and online. We believe your role in communicating information and commentary on tobacco harm reduction and safer nicotine products is essential. Thanks to high quality, accurate and balanced reporting, public understanding of this subject, which is the source of significant debate and misinformation, will improve. As with all good public health interventions, smoking cessation efforts and tobacco harm reduction are rooted in the provision of high quality information that enables people to make decisions for themselves.
If you are a media representative and you would like to attend #GFN23 in Warsaw, please fill in the registration form, then proceed to the "purchase tickets" section, and select "Media". There is no participation fee for media representatives. You may be asked to supply details of the organisation or outlet you work for or, if freelance, which organisation or outlet has commissioned you. The deadline to apply for media accreditation is Wednesday 31 May 2023.
