Vaper Expo UK – The Big Weekend
27th – 29th May 2017
After the very successful launch of the Vapouround Bus at last year’s Vaper Expo UK, we were roaring to go for the event in May.
The Vaper Expo UK organisers, Lee Skelding, Jay Cox, and Alyson Guiel, have continued to raise the expectations at every show. Since the first Vaper Expo in 2015, it has tripled in size making it Europe’s biggest vaping exhibition.
Business to Business day is always the most relaxed atmosphere as it gives the business sector a chance to network in a much calmer environment. As the B2B day was on the Friday it also celebrates the first day of the big weekend.
And what better way to start the weekend by hosting Vapouround’s Annual Awards Ceremony?
On Friday night, vape related companies from across the globe rejoiced and networked with each other whilst being entertained by DJ Bulge, famous magician Nick Einhorn, and enjoying a 3-course meal.
Once dinner was served the best part of the event began, the awards. From best mech mod to vaper of the year everything is celebrated under one roof and Vapouround would like to offer their congratulations to every single winner of the night. It truly was an amazing evening and great to see everyone celebrate the vaping community.
The main weekend of the event, Saturday and Sunday, was open to the public, also making it the busiest days of the whole show.
The Vaper Expo UK received a whopping 20,000 visitors at the NEC, making it the biggest footfall to date. Even with the tragic events that took place previously in Manchester, it did not stop enthusiastic vapers doing what they love and most of all it did not affect the electric atmosphere over the 3 interconnected halls.
The Vapouround Bus had a recently new and exciting wrap for the show that was not to be missed. As soon as vapers entered through the Hollywood themed red carpet, you could not miss the bus with its luxurious décor.
This year, we decided to do something unique with the bus to keep our vapers entertained throughout the day and cool down from the scorching sun. We had fun games on the bus such as, ‘guess how many e-liquids there are in a jar?’ Everyone wanted to participate and had a lot of fun doing so!
We were extremely pleased to see some old friends from previous bus tour visits:
“It’s lovely for old and new friends to stop by and show their support. It’s really important to us at Vapouround that we develop strong relationships when we go out on tour and visit vape stores, cities, and the vaping community because when we visit big events like the Vaper Expo, they’re excited to visit as much as we are thrilled to see them,” said Jorgie Shaw, Vapouround’s Bus manager.
All in all, it was a very successful weekend seeing old and new faces. We look forward to seeing more vapers at the next show which be held at the NEC on the 27th – 29th October of this year.
