World Vape Day will take place on the 30th of May, organised by the World Vapers' Alliance. The event is celebrated around the world as vapers, advocates and consumer organisations share the great news about vaping. Conversations will revolve around how e-cigs have helped smokers to quit and the public health benefit from reducing tobacco related harm.

World Vape Day is primarily an online event involving streamed presentations and Twitter campaigns and the organisers promise there will be something that everyone can join in with to show their support.

The organisers say:

  • Half of all those who smoke will die prematurely from a smoking-related disease
  • Over six million people die from a smoking-related disease every year
  • More people will die from smoking cigarettes than from malaria, HIV and tuberculosis combined
  • One billion people will have died from a smoking-related disease by the end of the century, according to the World Health Organization
  • $1 Trillion is the annual global cost of smoking-related diseases estimated by the WHO

On the 30th of May, an event will stream live on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter. Currently, the agenda is as follows:

16:00 CET - Vape Show

16:30 CET - Opening Remarks

17:00 CET - Time For Optimism: How Vaping Is Changing the World

18:00 CET - Why Is It Worth Going the Extra Mile for vaping

Confirmed participants: Prof. Bernd Mayer, Christopher Snowdon (IEA), GrimmGreen (THR advocate), Yael Ossowski (Consumer Choice Center)

19:00 CET - The Great Hazard Show

Alexandro (Hazard) Lucien is a Brazilian vaping influencer and will host the last panel

Planet of the Vapes is delighted to have been asked by the World Vapers' Alliance’s Director, Michael Landl, to be an official media partner for World Vape Day 2021. It is our sixth such appointment in the space of a fortnight and we will be bringing you all the news about the event as and when it happens.
