Organisers of the E-Cigarette Summit are delighted to announce that the 10th anniversary edition will take place at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in London on the 9th December, 2022. The opening keynote speech will be delivered by Dr Sanjay Agrawal, Chair of the RCP’s Tobacco Special Advisory Group. Organisers say that he will be joined by an unrivalled line up of leading global experts.

The E-Cigarette Summit has gained an unrivalled reputation as a neutral meeting point for scientists, regulators, industry, public health and practitioners to explore the latest research on e-cigarettes and facilitate respectful debate on what remain highly controversial issues. The aim will always be to ensure that disparate views can be explored in context of a common aim, which is to reduce smoking related death and disease.

The organisers state: “With thought provoking presentations and interactive panel debates, the E-Cigarette Summit provides a unique opportunity to explore the latest peer reviewed evidence on e-cigarettes and alternative nicotine products and has a single aim of facilitating respectful dialogue and thoughtful analysis to explore how this should be interpreted to deliver the most effective public health and regulatory strategies.

In this milestone year, the Summit will provide a unique opportunity to explore how the discussions and evidence on tobacco harm reduction and e-cigarettes have evolved over the last decade and explore which policies will be most supportive in taking the smoking rate to zero.  This year’s speakers will examine which questions have been answered, which remain, and which are newly-emerging.  The Summit will look forward as well as back, and fittingly will close with a session on endgame scenarios featuring UK, US, New Zealand, and Norwegian perspectives.

 “We look forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary with you in December.  This year is also an anniversary for our host the Royal College of Physicians – it has been 60 years since publication of the RCP’s landmark report on Smoking and Health.  We are therefore especially honoured to be able to hold the 2022 Summit at the RCP.”

Following on from the success of their first hybrid Summit in Washington, the organisers say they will be offering both an in-person and virtual access option for the London 2022 Summit via our interactive app. All registered delegates will be registered to the app and will benefit from the following:

  • Virtual delegates will be able to follow the livestream in real time or on-demand if preferable.
