“With some 300 delegates expected to attend, this year’s theme is Vaping for a Better Future and will explore how vaping can maximise its public health, economic and social impact as well as how the industry can gain a reputation for responsibility, all critical at a time when so much is at stake from a regulatory perspective.”

The organisers add: “This year there will a dedicated exhibition theatre which will provide an opportunity for you to promote what you offer for as little as £1,500. There are also a wide range of sponsorship opportunities for businesses that want to showcase their brand at the vaping industry’s most prestigious and established event, run by the sector for the sector.”
