Vaper Expo takes place at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham this weekend, 3rd-5th May 2019. Friday is a business-to-business/VIP day, but the public is encouraged to come along for both Saturday and Sunday. Over three hundred exhibitors will be presenting over five hundred brands to browse, sample and buy.

Vaper Expo’s organisers say: “The Vaper Expo UK is now recognised as the largest and most important vaping event in Europe and is considered to be the must-attend expo for UK and International manufacturers, suppliers and distributors. We are proud to introduce and unite leading key players in the industry, to act as the platform for launching new products and services, and serve as the central European hub for the vaping industry.”

“We always push the boundaries and have so much more fun and exciting things planned for The Vaper Expo, it is quickly transforming into a weekend event and with many other activities, restaurants, hotels and facilities onsite why not make a weekend of it.”

Doors open to the vapers to the pre-show entertainment area at 8am on Saturday and Sunday, with the main doors opening at 10am. If you have a VIP ticket you can gain entry from 9.30am.

The venue is usefully situated in the centre of the UK and offers convenient access by road, rail and airlines. Parking for motorcycles is free but other vehicles are priced from £15 per day. Cheaper parking is available in surrounding car parks such as the railway station.

Tickets can be purchased at a discount in advance from the Book Tickets page, and can be paid for on the day at prices starting from £20. As it is a vape event, all visitors must be over 18 and the organisers operate a Challenge 21 program – so recommend bringing ID if you have retained your youthful looks.

As well as the huge number of manufacturers, juice companies, and retailers from around the world, the organisers promise stage giveaways, exciting competitions, and other entertainment.

A free guide to the event can be picked up on entry and a full exhibitor list can be found here.

Clearly, vaping is allowed inside the show but Vaper Expo is keen to request you refrain from vaping in the other areas of the NEC. Vaping is fine once you enter the pre-show area.

If you attend the event be sure to post your photos up on the Planet of the Vapes forum for everybody to see.
