Previous to the COVID pandemic, CAPHRA had been making plans to rent a room at a nearby hotel to the FCTC COP9 meeting and then have THR consumers, and any experts who were available for press calls, meetings and question and answer sessions. This was to be our response for being shut out, once again, from the proceedings yet being available to the media, who inevitably, would also be shut out.

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I’m delighted to welcome you here today at The Global Forum on Nicotine, an event that has become one of the highlights of the year for the people and organisations who are shaping the present and future of nicotine products.
It’s wonderful, and still astonishing, to see so many faces at this event – especially when I think back to how the industry used to be. I may be revealing my age here, but when I first started working with nicotine products, I was a lone voice struggling to be heard.
