VAPER EXPO if we build it, they will come the build area remains a huge draw at vaper expo uk By Jane Mulligan of Team Shytots The Build Area has always been the place to go to get your new kit coiled at Vaper Expo. It started early in Vaper Expo’s history when co-host Jay Cox asked @craftycoils, Steve Massingham, if he could run a coil building area. The Build Area came into existence with @craftycoils and @ buildfaction – the UK’s first build team – together at the helm. It quickly became a popular attraction with visitors who could refresh their RDAs or have new coils built and installed into their shiny new purchases. Safety has always been and remains a major priority for the builders. The team only put safe builds in RDAs and they educate people on safety as well as coil build choice and how this affects flavour. Over the years, we have tried to give bigger and better service each expo. I became involved a few years back when Steve asked me to join the team, although I no longer build except for personal use. But my experience, Instagram presence and day-to-day contact with builders meant that I could bring organisational help, knowledge and customer service to back up the build team. After the May 2017 expo, Steve asked if I could get some big builders from outside the UK to become part of the Build Area team as I sponsor some of the biggest builders in the world, so the request went out to team #shytots. The result was the fantastic @mind_ forge @the _vaping_aussie @art_of_senol coming to join us at October 2017’s A Celebration of Vaping. May this year proved to be another huge success. Now, the October expo is looking even more exciting as builders old and new join us in the Build Area. We’ll be on-hand all weekend so come and find us near the Visitors’ Entrance for all your building needs. 84 | THE VAPER EXPO
