The Bariloche ETS Conference, held in December 1988 in Argentina, was yet another of the tobacco industry's closed and controlled indoor-air-quality conferences held for the specific purpose of generating news coverage and of publishing a proceedings booklet (Spanish and English) which would be used as a text-book for architectural students, medical specialists, and the like.
This was a joint program of Philip Morris and British American Tobacco, and it preceded the much larger and better-known McGill University ETS Symposium in Canada in November 1989. It was followed up at a meeting of Philip Morris and British-American Tobacco executives in Guetemala in 1990 where they jointly decided to fund the recruitment of 14 Latin American ETS Consultants.
