Representatives of 55 Ukrainian and world companies attended the exhibition, they handed out eJuices for trial purposes and allowed testing their best products.

Manufacturers presented lines of American, Polish and local eLiquids for trial purposes. Vapour fans highly evaluated the quality of some domestically produced eJuices. And the company Wick&Wire won the award in the nomination “The best flavour of the year”.

The main outcome of the event was a huge cloud, which was simultaneously blown out by 132 exhibition visitors. Expert of the National Register of Records of Ukraine Vitaliy Zorin registered the first record on the territory of the country, made using electronic inhalers.

 “The more such records in Ukraine, the fewer people will smoke “incorrect” cigarettes,” said expert.

DJ Mukvik grooved the main vape gathering of the capital with nice sets and offered to test a wide line of eLiquids of his own making – Monster Flavor.

Roman Mukvik masterly combined his two favourite activities: mixing cool sets and vaping eLiquids of his own production.

 A vivid and intensive show was held on the stage. All volunteers could participate in the Cloud contest and win valuable prizes from event sponsors.

 Participants’ skills were evaluated by three judges – famous video bloggers Mikhey and Dmitry Demidov, as well as cofounder of Wick&Wire, Maxim Zhurbenko.

Such companies as EcoVan Vape, Monster flavor, Wick&Wire, Tapvape, and others were throwing prizes into hands of the viewers, standing near the stage. Afterwards, girls were competing for UAH 5000 prize in the Twerk Battle and boosted spirits of the public.

There were also useful workshops on vape tricks and coil building on the stage, as well as Body Art contests, where young girls acted as models.

A team from Minsk, Factory Vape, demonstrated their best tricks. Trickers from Kiev also took the floor – FUH illusion team.

Boys gladdened the audience with brilliant vape tricks and held a workshop for everyone who wanted to learn making vape feints.

Unscheduled zest of the show program became a moving marriage proposal… May the new couple’s love be as sweet and delicious as a newly opened eLiquid bottle from the favourite manufacturer, and as hot as a coil warmed to the max.

Vape-style romance: marriage proposal at the year’s main get-together.
