Vapouround magazine Special Issue 01 - Page 126

EVENTS APRIL 15-17 TH 2016 by Stephen Tarpey Held in Messe Frankfurt on April 15th to 17th 2016. This fair saw the combination of both shisha and vape hitting the show floor. One half of the hall was dedicated to shisha and the other to vape. I have to say I'm not 100% convinced that this was 120 VAPOUROUND MAGAZINE USA the right choice, for the first time since I can remember I left a vape show actually smelling of smoke. Don't get me wrong, the exhibit was well planned out and the stands were excellent, but most of the guests who were there came to see the shisha stands, although when they looked at the Vaping part their curiosity got the better of them and they would come over to try. This in itself is a good thing, if the idea is to get smokers from tobacco the chance to educate people on Vaping is always a good opportunity. The event was truly international, brands from across the globe attended, to name a few countries represented; South Korea, China, Malaysia, Germany, Italy, France, Poland, Croatia, U.K & USA. There was a balance of liquid and mod manufacturers present. All said and done, this was a good event and the exposure it bought to people who wouldn't normally know about Vaping gave it something a little bit extra.
