Ok, that's not quite true. But 500,000 people from 178 countries did recently vote Warsaw the best travel destination in Europe. And as Warsaw is the home of the Global Forum on Nicotine, you can pair a city break in the poll-topping Polish capital with the delights of the only global conference devoted to tobacco harm reduction.

Another exciting GFN23 innovation is the Spanish-language Symposia. Comprising two sessions, conducted in Spanish and translated into English, these panel discussions will run alongside other workshops. Hosted by Jeffrey Zamora and Dr Carmen Escrig, the panels will focus on consumer advocacy, and harm reduction and medical professionals.
