“Without doubt Vaper Expo has a unique atmosphere. As soon as the event starts the energy is electric, it is like no other exhibition.” Account Manager Chris Hughes says they deal with clients from every corner of the globe for the Vaper Expo, “shipping a lot of freight from the Far East and the US. We also have a lot of clients within the UK and Europe.” Things can get tricky with international crossovers as Chris explains. “Ever changing regulations regarding the international transport of vaping products certainly challenges our compliance department.” This division of CEVA logistics are specialists in meeting the needs of events and exhibitions like this one. As a repeat visitor, Chris is no stranger to how chaotic the run up to these events can be, saying “certainly the most important aspect of our job is working with all stakeholders to ensure a safe working environment. Exhibitions are often quite hectic particularly during the build-up and break down with fork trucks and electric pallet trucks beeping away in the background.” But all this planning and dedication pays off, we know it, you know it, and clearly Chris knows it too: “Without doubt Vaper Expo has a unique atmosphere. As soon as the event starts the energy is electric, it is like no other exhibition.” VAPER EXPO SHOWGUIDE | 69
