| The selection of conference topics and speakers is independently overseen by the programme directors Andy McEwen and Heather Thomson.|
They work closely with the programme planning group (whose members are listed below) and the conference partners (also listed below) to ensure that the programme is interesting, topical and relevant.
The UK National Smoking Cessation Conference is organised for the field by social enterprise, Exchange Supplies. With promotion of human health, and the development of the field rather than profit as our primary aim, we are different from commercial conference organisers in that we are able to commit to running an annual conference for the forseeable future and invest the conference income in bringing the best possible speakers from around the world to speak to UK audiences, the best free online conference archive, quality venues, and professionally organised events.
Exchange Supplies is an ISO 9001 accredited organisation, which means that we have a full set of independently audited proceedures designed to continually improve the conferences we organise. If you would like to give us any feedback, on either the website or the conference, please drop us a line at email@example.com, or give us a call on 01305 262244.
For general enquiries about the event, please call the conference organisers Exchange Supplies on 01305 262244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
