Admissions Policy 

The E-Cigarette Summit is open to government, charities, NGO’s, private industry/business, academia, and media from the UK and overseas. The Summit is designed to provide a balanced and neutral platform for health professionals, policy makers, scientists and e-cigarette stakeholders to explore the facts and myths surrounding e-cigarettes and examine some of the more contentious issues; particularly, safety, efficacy, gateway potential and the impact of medical regulation. 

The proceedings for the day will be recorded (Audio and Video). Should you not wish to be filmed, please inform the organiser, prior to booking your place.

All attendees will respect the direction of the Chair throughout the proceedings and will abide by principles of professional conduct and courtesy at all times. Any behaviour that is deemed to be unconstructive or disruptive to the proceedings will not be tolerated.  The organisers reserve the right, at their own discretion, to ask any individual who continually disrupts the proceedings to leave the venue. In such an instance there will be no recourse for compensation against the costs both direct and indirect of attending.
