VAPEXPO Kiev-2016: eLiquids thrown from the stage, hot twerking and the first record-breaking cloud
On October 1-2 ACCO International hosted the second international vape industry exhibition – VAPEXPO Kiev-2016. Metropolitan vapers, as well as admirers of tasty vapour from all over Ukraine, gathered together to attend the conference, test modern devices, try new e-liquids and enjoy a spectacular show.
The organizer of this event, much anticipated by the whole vape community, was Smile-Expo Company.
As part of the event we held the first Ukrainian industry conference for vape business owners. On October 1 presentations were given by market experts:
Elena Rogulis – analyst at Euromonitor International – spoke about current trends and perspectives of the market;
Alexey Pavlenko – president of the Association of electronic vaping market – highlighted questions of vaping regulatory policy;
Kurt Sonderegger – founder/CEO at Café Racer Vape – told what awaits industry in the future.
Among other speakers were: Evgeniy Grigoriev – Senior Account Manager at SEO-Studio, Ivan Zui – founder of EcoVan Vape, Dmitry Churakov – CEO at Wingle Group and Alexander Shevchenko – owner of the company “Ekosigara”. Local and foreign industry experts described the current state of the industry, defined the best promotion channels, revealed the secrets of business development and active sales.
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 e-liquids for trial purposes. Vapour fans highly evaluated the quality of some domestically produced e-liquids. 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 visitors of the exhibition. Expert of the National Register of Records of Ukraine Vitaliy Zorin registered the first Ukrainian record, 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 taste a wide line of e-liquids of his own making – Monster Flavor.
We organized a vivid and intensive show on the stage. Winners of the Cloud contest received valuable prizes from sponsors of the event. Three judges were evaluating participants’ skills: video bloggers Mikhey and Dmitry Demidov, and cofounder of Wick&Wire Maxim Zhurbenko. Such companies as EcoVan Vape, Monster flavor, Wick&Wire, Tapvape, etc., were throwing prizes directly from the stage. Afterwards, female teams were competing for UAH 5000 prize in the Twerk Battle. The winner was Easy team from Kharkov.
There were also useful workshops on vape tricks and coil winding, Body Art contests, where young girls acted as models.
Due to the efforts of our team VAPEXPO Kiev-2016 has become a pleasant tradition for business owners and tasty vapour fans.
We are particularly thankful to exhibition sponsors – companies Enjoy Smoke and Wick&Wire, as well as general sponsor of the show program – manufacturer Monster flavor.
VAPEXPO exhibitions provide an opportunity to monitor market growth and keep abreast of the latest events of vape industry.
We will be glad to see you at the next VAPEXPO!
