Can't make it to Maryland? No worries...you can still get the full conference experience without the travel.

The International Smoke Symposium is being conducted as a Hybrid Event. A hybrid combines in-person and streaming presentations, offers asynchronistic discussions, and includes a rich variety of other features designed to suit the needs of both audiences. It's an all-inclusive venue that broadens your attendance and increases your revenue.will provide an array of offerings from the comfort and convenience of your home or office.

All plenary and concurrent sessions will be professional videotaped and will be streamed live. This will allow the remote attendees to interact in real time with the presenters and other remote attendees. We will also be offering a virtual poster session and trade show. The workshops and presentations will then be archived and will be available for up to one year after the symposium.
