The annual UKVIA Forum and Awards Dinner is back!

Accelerating Action: Securing a World without Smoking

2023 marks 20 years of development in the vaping industry during which time the category has contributed significantly to bringing smoking prevalence down to record levels.

This year the UKVIA Forum’s theme is ‘Accelerating Action to Secure a World Without Smoking’ building on the strong foundations that the sector has established in the UK over the last two decades.

In doing so it will focus on action that is taking place, or needs to happen urgently, to ensure that the vaping industry is well placed to fully support and meet the government’s smoke-free 2030 target.

The conference is followed by the vaping industry event of the year, the annual UKVIA Awards Dinner. Last year 500 delegates and guests attended the two events, including senior executives from  the vaping industry together with MPs, government advisors, public health professionals, regulators, enforcement organisations, think tanks, researchers, product and service providers and the investment community.
