Conference Theme

TMA is pleased to announce the agenda and theme for our 102nd Annual Meeting & Conference. We are excited about the opportunity to gather all stakeholders together and discuss the critical issues facing tobacco and vapor in 2017 and beyond.

This year’s theme, Understanding, Navigating & Embracing Change, captures the spirit of the times within TMA, the industry and wider society. Our conference will explore change and the overlapping needs of all stakeholders to understand, navigate and embrace change and its impact on business, policy-making and civil society.  

Providing a forum for all stakeholders to convey information, exchange ideas and learn from each other is a cornerstone of TMA. TMA thanks our speakers, CTP Director Mitch Zeller and Malawian Ambassador to the United Nations, H.E. Necton Mhura. We also extend a warm welcome to Dr. Matt Holman, Director of the CTP Office of Science, who will be making his inaugural TMA appearance as head of the Office of Science. Dr. Holman is succeeding Dr. David Ashley and we thank Dr. Ashley for the many years he contributed to the spirit of information exchange at TMA.

Please review our agenda on the next page. We hope you will join us at our new location, the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles. If you have not done so, please take advantage of early registration.
