Events and activities
Global Alcohol Policy Alliance is co-host of the Global Alcohol Policy Conference held every two years. GAPA holds and participates in numerous other events, some of which are outlined below.
Successful GAPC 2023 held in Cape Town
The 7th Global Alcohol Policy Conference was held in Cape Town, South Africa 24-26 October 2023. 521 participants from 55 countries attended the rich program over three days. GAPC is the leading forum for the world’s alcohol policy makers, advocates, researchers, civil society activists and practitioners. With its high level of heavy episodic drinking and related harms, and its long history of challenges in getting policy shifts in areas such as controls on alcohol marketing and retail sales of alcohol, South Africa will be an ideal venue in which to discuss alcohol policy and in which to host GAPC 2023.
GAPA Virtual Event 2022
GAPA Virtual Event 12-13 October 2022 offered interactive sessions in three different time zones. Each day there was a session with key-note speakers which was followed by a regional session with comments from a panel of regional representatives and discussion among participants. Video keynote presentations are available.
