Vaper Expo UK: May 4-6 2018

True to our promise, the Vapouround Bus pulled into the Birmingham expo in May in a shining new wrap, filled out with a comfortable seating area, some fantastic new juices, a fresh internal layout and even a gaming system. Visitors took every opportunity to catch a break from the sounds and speed of the show floor to socialise, swap tips, top up on and indulge their competitive side.

The Vapouround Bus had never held more juices, never provided more unique features and never seen so many visitors in a single weekend. Even the comparatively calm B2B day had the team going all hands on deck. At peak B2C hours, we saw queues of eager vapers waiting to see what we had added or experience the Vapouround Bus for the first time.

Just as the Vaper Expo brings a perfect cross-section of British and global vapers to its halls, the Vapouround Bus is the perfect stop for a diverse snapshot. The reinvigorated upstairs area bore new evidence of Vapouround as a global brand and the expo as representing a worldwide family: Vape Duty Free had hired the space to display a special range of cosmopolitan concoctions inviting all aboard to “Vape the flavours of the world” from some quality mods placed on a printed map. Vape Duty Free also provided the first six instalments of the already acclaimed Fifty Shades of Flava collection, an ambitious project combining fruit, dessert and spice flavours.

But, as always, all this is nothing without our guests, who are our main motivation to improve with every outing.

Jonathan, an ex-smoker and vaper of three years, was one of many who got to see the bus for the first time. “You’ve definitely got to come to the bus, it’s a must-see stop. The testing stations are a great way to sample everything.”

Carl, a vaper of nine years, thought he had seen it all in the industry until he found the Vapouround Bus last October. He was one of many returning to see what else we had for May.

“I started way back on the cig-a-likes and I haven’t smoked since switching to a mod. Everyone here is really inviting, really friendly and very informative about the liquids and stations.”

Tony first came to the Vapouround Bus in October with his nephew and was particularly impressed with the Vapouround staff. He also had his eye on a certain liquid brand.

“We came here all the way from Maidstone in Kent. It is different this time, there’s more people around to help and offer advice, and more to do. It’s good to see the return of Naked Fish liquids.”

Whether on the road taking starter kits and testing stations to dual users, relapsed vapers and smokers, or giving dedicated vapers a place to relax and try something special, the Vapouround Bus can do it all.


Vaper Expo – The Big Weekend – May 17

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.
