Back to the 80s and 90s Festival, Leicestershire, August 10-12 2018

 

We had such a fantastic festival weekend at the Derbyshire Sausage and Cider Festival with James Dean Events in July that we decided to team up with the Midlands-based events company once more.

A three-day triumph for the bus and the local community, Back to the 80s and 90s Fest proved that nostalgia is in, but anyone’s habits can change. We introduced every kind of attendee – from 18 to 65 plus – to vaping.

The addition of ADV Distro allowed us to introduce new vapers to products beyond a starter kit which they could buy.

The best thing about this festival was the lack of cigarettes available for purchase, meaning there was only one place to go when smokers ran out and the nicotine cravings hit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stourbridge Town Centre

A trip to the West Midlands town of Stourbridge at the height of summer weather on May 18 is an opportunity few would turn down.

We set up in the bustling Crown Square and within seconds of opening the doors we welcomed our first curious visitor aboard: an elderly gentleman smoking a pipe. Throughout the day we had a mixture of smokers, vapers and dual-users all keen to find out what the bus was all about. Interest peaked at lunch, as visitors socialised with each other and even called friends to come and join them.

We handed out several e-cigarette starter kits including to a group of university students who had already been smoking for several years. The oldest recipient was a 70-year-old man who had been on 20-a-day from the age of 18, proving that it is never too early or too late to quit.

We had given away starter kits, juice samples and all our media packs, a testament to the quality of the liquids available in our testing stations and advertised on board. It’s difficult to imagine how this tour date could have gone any better because the reception we received from the people of Stourbridge was simply amazing.
