Global Tobacco & Nicotine Forum 2016 (GTNF)

The Global Tobacco & Nicotine Forum (GTNF) was launched in Rio de Janeiro in 2008. The event has since been held in Bangalore, India (2010); Antwerp, Belgium (2012); Cape Town, South Africa (2013); West Virginia, USA (2014); and Bologna, Italy (2015). We are returning to Europe in 2016, inviting delegates to join us in Brussels, Belgium, on 27, 28 and 29 September.

The GTNF is organized and hosted by US-based Tobacco Reporter magazine, the leading international publication for the tobacco industry. First published in 1873, the monthly magazine is dedicated to updating the industry on everything from leaf markets to manufacturing, regulation to sustainability. Together with its sister publication, Vapor Voice magazine, Tobacco Reporter offers a uniquely broad and deep perspective on a rapidly changing business and regulatory landscape.

Like the two preceding events, GTNF Bologna in September 2015 was sold out. Delegates and speakers from all over the world participated, including senior regulatory, tobacco and nicotine product executives, and public health officials engaged in the tobacco and nicotine arena. They are the prime movers shaping our industry, its present and future. We hope you will take your place with them in 2016.
