GAPC 2021 postponed until 2023

25 March 2021

Based on the present uncertainty about the development of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, we are postponing the Global Alcohol Policy Conference and this will now be held in Cape Town to 2023 as an in-person event.

The Global Alcohol Policy Alliance Virtual Event 2021 will be held in the same week, 12-13 October 2021, and this will have interactive sessions in different time zones. Key-note presentations will be complemented with comments from a panel of regional representatives. As a consequence of postponement of GAPC2021 there will be no abstract submission and concurrent sessions.

More details of the GAPA Virtual Event will be forthcoming soon.

“We look forward to co-hosting a successful Global Alcohol Policy Conference in Cape Town in 2023, when we will hopefully have returned to a more normal life. Meanwhile we anticipate an interesting programme in the GAPA Virtual Event in October this year and the opportunity for regional networking to take place,”
