Our very own Kevin Burke will be travelling to Williamsburg, Virginia to report on the annual Tobacco Merchants Association meeting (May 15th-17th). The TMA is an event that covers all aspects of the tobacco industry, and you may remember we attended last years meeting as well. (Last years coverage can be found here.)
This years meeting is of particular interest, as electronic cigarettes will be more prominently featured. Specifically, it should shed some light on pending FDA regulation and how the electronic cigarette and tobacco industries plan to react. Of course, we’ll conduct as many interviews as possible and present our analysis of the event.
The schedule of events can be found here. Many speakers who are prominent voices in the electronic cigarette community will be in attendance, including Dr. Polosa, Dr. Farsalinos, Dr. Carl Phillips, and of course Dr. Siegel and Bill Godshall. If last years meeting is any indication, they will have fantastic presentations planned.
