The Vapouround bus visited Stafford on the 25th August making it the second tour date that the new bus has attended.
As renovations are still going ahead with the bus we are still having to use the same set up as Newark-on-Trent, with the vape sampling station outside the bus itself.
At first I thought this might put people off because I was so used to seeing people coming on board the bus and trying e-liquids from our top deck vape sampling station.
However my fears proved groundless as we had a great day from start to finish. People were genuinely excited about our plans for the bus and were asking what it would look like when it was fully kitted out which was great to hear.
This was a beautiful sunny day and the sunlight really highlighted the colourful adverts which adorned the windows of the new double-decker.
For those in the vaping industry the names on the bus are household names but this was the first opportunity that a lot of the non-vaping community had of seeing these companies advertised anywhere.
I can honestly say that Stafford had one of the highest footfalls with people coming up to us all day to find out what was going on.
One man explained how he had been vaping now for more than two years and had never looked back.
He was a former heavy smoker who had been warned by his doctor that unless he quit smoking then he was risking his life.
This was enough for him to seek alternatives to smoking and vaping proved to be the only thing that was able to get him off tobacco for good.
It is always great to hear stories like this and it cannot be emphasised enough how great it us for us to hear stories like this.
The local vaping shops around the area came to say hi and introduce themselves and, as ever, it was a pleasure to meet members of the local vaping community.
A lot of people told us how they had first seen the bus at Vaper Expo back in October last year which was the first time we unveiled the bus to the public.
Time flies and we are getting ready to take this new bus to the NEC in Birmingham for this October’s event and we are looking forward to that very much indeed.
So, if you will be at the Vaper Expo UK in October pop along and see the official launch of the NEW Vapouround bus as we would love to see you on board.
