On September 20 and 21, (Friday and Saturday) the annual e-cigarette convention will descend upon Las Vegas’ Flamingo Hotel. Expected to be a part of the endeavor will be more than 50 electronic cigarette companies and vaping media tables.
Adults over the age of 18 are welcome; so expect plenty of free samples, giveaways, unveiling of new products and product demos!
VapeFest began in 2010, and has gotten bigger each year since, with thousands of e-smokers attending. This year’s convention is expected to have an equally exuberant turnout, with exciting events like a raffle with high-ticket prizes, scientific workshops, and many information sessions.
Aside from the excitement and fun of mingling with other vapers, the true purpose behind this event is to raise funds towards research and offer a greater presence of wide scale electronic cigarette education. Promoting research and education is huge to the industry, and will help further knowledge to keep users and legislators informed accurately. Events such as VapeFest focus on the positivity, and they enable many to come together for the movement.
Electronic cigarettes are very much beyond the fad-phase. They have solidified their presence in mainstream culture, attained a vast celebrity following, and have become such a lifestyle icon that users are happy to get together, in mass quantities to hang out and vape collectively. These very same vapers are also passionate about the movement and spreading the word about how much these products can benefit the lives of smokers.
Electronic cigarette users are thrilled to use them, and using them often becomes a hobby for many. They are unlike any other products in the tobacco category, as you’d never see cigarette, or even nicotine patch users meeting up to discuss the future of the industry and check out new products together! This is just a sliver of the reasoning as to why this industry is expanding and booming as it does so.
So all vapers, take note: get to Vegas on September 20, hit up the Flamingo Hotel, and see what’s shaking in the in smokeless cigarette industry!
