E-Cigarettes are enabling millions of smokers to quit more effectively than any public health campaign. But increasingly, they're being targeted by excessive regulation. The Tobacco Products Directive is placing tight restrictions on E-Cigarette manufacturers and sellers, restricting their ability to market to consumers. After Brexit, Britain will have a chance to reform E-Cigarette regulations and support a harm reduction revolution. Will it take it?

To discuss and debate how Britain should regulate vaping, we've assembled a panel of real experts.

We have the IEA's Head of Lifestyle Economics Christopher Snowdon speaking alongside TV GP and Spectator Columnist Dr Roger Henderson. Representing the ASI will be our Executive Director Sam Bowman and chairing the panel will be the ASI's director and co-founder Dr Eamonn Butler.

It's sure to be a fun discussion, and we hope you'll be around to see it. We're hosting it inside the Secure Zone (so you'll need a conference pass) in the Stanley Suite at the Midland Hotel. The event's free to attend, no need to RSVP, just turn up at 1pm.
