    Me three. Having organised conferences and conventions in the past, I know just how much goes into it. No matter how much work you put in, there are still a thousand things to do. It's like it never ends. So big ups to Rob, Silver, shaunnadan and all the rest of the gang for making it happen. :campeon:

    Admin
    What an epic event this was!

    Am pleased to report that VapeCon 2016 was a major success.

    I just cannot believe the turnout. It was way above our expectations. We estimate 2,500 to 3,000 attendees. The passion and commitment from everyone was electric. The vibe and buzz was just so superb, you had to be there to feel it. The main thing was that there were smiles on most people's faces for most of the day.

    Its not often that one gets an opportunity to be involved with something as special as this and I am so grateful for that. It has been a great experience - despite all the hard work.

    Am going to say a big thank you to all the vendors for your commitment and efforts. You guys are great and the showing you put on for us yesterday illustrated that vaping in SA is strong and growing! You did us proud. Your stands were amazing!!! Your specials were great!!

    A big thanks to each and every one of you that attended. Without all the passionate vapers there would not be an event like this. Thanks for your dedication and enthusiasm for all things vaping. The community is alive and well and everyone was well behaved and super friendly. Very special!

    To the team - a big thank you. Everyone helped and pulled together, not just on the day but in the months leading up to it.

    @Rob Fisher, you are a legend and we are lucky to have someone like you in our vaping community. From being such a great announcer yesterday to little things like making sure I kept hydrated throughout the day - what can I say - thanks Rob - you have helped in so many ways we couldnt possibly mention them all!

    @shaunnadan, you sir deserve a major award! Thank you for all the dedication with all the competitions and prizes and running around co-ordinating all of that. @BumbleBee - thanks for all your dedication with the designs and all the help on the day - and coming in from Tzaneen to be with us. To the rest of the Admin and Mod team who helped and contributed with various things, thank you guys, you are a major pillar of the ECIGSSA Community and you all rock.

    And to @Stroodlepuff, thank you for all your help and sharing all the experiences from last time. And for all the help in arranging many things that often go unnoticed in events like this.

    What a day - what a week - what a past few months - wow...
    I could get quite emotional about this....

    For me one of the most special moments in this whole exercise was the countdown to officially opening VapeCon 2016. I was standing next to @Rob Fisher in the metal barricade queue gates. The air was crisp and cool. The butterflies in my stomach were flitting. The people in the front of the queue were eager to enter. So many things were ready and double checked but so much could still go wrong. The nerves were on edge. And Rob then did the countdown on the Arena PA system. Will never forget that.

    Till next time...

    First off, I want to thank and congratulate everyone who was part of the arrangements for VapeCon. @Silver @Rob Fisher @ Shaunnadan @Stroodlepuff @BumbleBee

    Thanks for all your efforts!

    I think it was massively successful. As we arrived me and @Casper were amazed by the amount of attendees! DANG! I think we underestimated the sheer amount of people who would be attending this epic event.

    Have to say I was SHOCKED to see how many people are not members here!

    Yes, there was not enough food or drink, but thats something that can be easily addressed with the next event.

    Then, I would've wanted to see more of the members here, but there were so many people, I was looking for @Silver the whole I was there and only managed to see him at the door when we left. Was nice to have a quick chat with @Silver and @Rob Fisher .

    My biggest disappointment was that Vapour Mountain @Oupa did not bring along any Banana Creams juice. I wanted to score a 100ml at the discounted price, but now I'll have to get it from them at the normal price PLUS shipping..o_O

    Had an EPIC TIME guys!!!
