HERE’S THE LOWDOWN…
This will be the second year that The Vaper Expo UK will be setting stage in England's second city; bringing industry retailers, wholesalers, distributors and vapers together under one roof to celebrate and explore the ever-growing community of vaping. It is the UK’s largest and most acknowledged e-cigarette events; collaborating with key role models in the vaping industry, providing sought after products and exhibiting new and acclaimed e-liquid and e-cigarette brands, The Vaper Expo is the perfect place to sink your teeth into the knowledge and lifestyle highly anticipated by fellow cloud chasers.
The NEC will be housing over 200 of the worlds leading brands (including us), selling and distributing a diverse range of advanced hardware, devices and e-juices to consumers and vendors during the event. There will be the chance to discuss and sample an array of products - meaning whether you are an absolute novice or a vaping enthusiast, you will find something to delve into!
Of course what’s an event without some entertainment? With a rich line up of DJs, street magicians and even a vaping robot - it’s going to be a wonderland of haze and great beats! Resident DJ; DJ Dantics, will be filling the atmosphere with a mixture of sounds to suit everyones taste whilst Birmingham based musician, Mark Barber is iNFiNiTi; an illusionist, trickster and magic artist, who will be worming through the crowds, shocking and amazing with his enchanting street magic skills! Then we have Ibot, our very own mechanical vaping friend. Ibot will be circling the arena so guests can have their photos taken with him to take home as cherished memoirs!
WHAT TO EXPECT…
There will be a dedicated build area sponsored by Anarchist competition wire, Cotton Bacon wick by Wick & Vape and Crafty Coils. Guests will be able to join in workshops where you will be shown how to rebuild devices, try the products and learn advanced coil building. There will be plenty of freebies, competitions and give-aways, magazines and the chance to network with hundreds of different brands and other enthusiastic members of the vaping community.
The event shall be accommodating some of the biggest names in vaping as well as small start ups and becoming businesses who wish to build their brand recognition, converse with potential customers and contacts and advertise themselves in the most effective way possible!
The team working behind the expo are reluctant to reveal any further information regarding the 2016 set-up in order to keep guests anticipating with excitement! But after the success of 2015’s expo, it’s sure to astound!
