Cant get enough of Prohibition's Juices. Will definitely support them again. Also loving the 2 T-Shirts I got from them when purchasing their deals. Only crap thing is all my Prohibition juices are finished;(

Sorry to hear your juices are done :( - where do you live. We're just about in stores around the country. Two launches in JHB in the next few weeks but currently in CPT and KZN. Otherwise, go to our website to order. Free shipping with any order over R300 :)
Let me know if I can help further :)

Next is international juicemaker Cotton Candy all the way from Russia!

They had a double booth stand that was colourful and exciting. Waving to the camera early in the morning, just before opening time...

If my wife sees all these photos with the promo girls she might think I am not going to vapecon for the right reasons...So its my civil duty to fill up my backpack with goodies before I go home!

Those are my two favorite people! :h: I had such a blast with them when we visited China, they gave me a super awesome birthday! The one in the blue Jersey on the right (Calvin) is a rap god!!!

Next up is the VAPECON / ECIGSSA stand ;-)

We had a similar stand to last year, near the stage. Counters all around for the competitions and our backwall banners.

From @Rob Fisher and myself, we want to thank each and every one of you guys for your hard work and efforts in helping to put this together. From the planning phases to the build up day and during the event itself. There is no way this could have happened without you guys. You know your stuff and I am proud to be part of this amazing team! A big thank you also to @Christos and @SAVapeGear who helped us out with so many things on the event itself. Legends. You all rock big time!

A big thanks to Deepika and the IVG team for all your support and involvement. It was great to have you guys with us in South Africa. And thank you for the efforts in travelling from far!

Did anybody get a video of the IVG guys on stage? They where hyper like rock stars.

This VapeCon had the best food vendors ever! I just wish the Halal Guy with the Beef ribs had a restaurant in Durbs! Best ribs EVER! I wish I had taken a selfie with my ribs! Here are some peeps enjoying the VapeCon Food! And the outside seating area was also a great place to do a rebuild! @Stitch doing his thing!

The outside area proved very popular... out of the way of the crowds and some fresh air!

All the seats were taken outside... no problem picnic on the grass!
