Have We Bottled It? Alcohol Marketing and Young People conference, Sept 15

Following on from the success of last year’s Keeping It In The Family – Children Affected by Parental Alcohol Problems seminar,  Alcohol Action Ireland , the national charity for alcohol-related issues, is delighted to host our 2010 conference ‘Have We Botttled It? Alcohol Marketing and Young People’.

Have We Bottled It? Alcohol Marketing and Young People

Alcohol is one of the most heavily marketed products on our shelves with a total market value of €6 billion in Ireland this year. Alcohol marketing targets young people and influences their drinking.

Alcohol Action Ireland’s conference sets out to explore the question - have we abdicated responsibility when it comes to controlling alcohol marketing? The conference looks at what alcohol marketing actually is, how it works and what can be done to reduce its impact, particularly on young people.

Keynote Speaker:

·         Professor Gerard Hastings, Director, Institute for Social Marketing, Stirling University, Scotland

Other Speakers:

·         James Doorley, Assistant Director, National Youth Council of Ireland

·         Dr Evelyn Gillan, Chief Executive, Alcohol Focus Scotland
