Minneapolis Hosts National Conference on Tobacco or Health October 24-26 on Heels of Minnesota's Statewide, Smoke-Free Law
Date:10/23/2007

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Less than one month after the state's new smoke-free law took effect, more than 3,000 scientists and health advocates are converging on Minneapolis to attend the biennial National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH) conference October 24-26 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

NCTOH is the nation's largest and longest-lasting gathering of the U.S. tobacco control movement. Through the expertise of approximately 1,200 presenters, more than 100 of them local, the conference aims to improve and sustain the effectiveness and reach of tobacco control programs and activities in the United States. Experts will be presenting on topics ranging from the latest evidence on health impacts to new treatments in cessation, from secondhand smoke policy approaches to youth and priority populations advocacy, and much more.

Conference organizers selected this location because of its smoke-free status. "We were looking forward to coming to Minneapolis because the city was smoke-free," said Kari Appler of Danya International, Inc., a health communications, research, and technology firm and organizer of the conference. "But now that the entire state recently went smoke-free, it's even better because it gives us all something to celebrate."

"More and more organizations select conference locations based on whether or not it's smoke-free. We have received meeting requests based on the fact that our city is entirely smoke-free," said Kevin Lewis, vice president of convention sales at Meet Minneapolis. "Bringing a large group like National Conference on Tobacco or Health has a positive economic impact on surrounding businesses. More than 3,000 convention attendees can enjoy Minneapolis' cultural attractions, shops and be entertained at many of our wonderful smoke-free restaurants and bars."
