    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!

    Right, this is never an easy post ;-)

    There were a few exhibitors whose stands we didn't get pictures of. So big apologies to you guys. I can assure you this was by no means intentional. We value and appreciate every single exhibitor that took part.

    Local juicemaker Lungasm Premium E-liquid
    Thanks Khalid @eviltoy for your support and involvement. It was great to have you guys at VapeCon! And thanks for the efforts in travelling from Cape Town.

    Sample box vendor Vape Mail
    Thanks Ben for your support and involvement at VapeCon!

    Juice manufacturer and retailer AvacareVape
    Thanks to Tarryn, Leon and the AvacareVape team. We appreciate your efforts and for travelling from Cape Town to be with us

    International juicemaker Fresh Pressed from the USA
    Thanks Jeff for the support and involvement - for all the efforts and for travelling from far

    International manufacturer VGOD from the USA
    Thanks to Sal and the whole VGOD team for your support and involvement at VapeCon. We appreciate it. And for all the efforts in travelling from far!

    The combined effort from all the exhibitors is astounding. We thank you all and appreciate it greatly!

    Here's a Panoramic shot - I think this was taken quite late on the Sunday

    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.

    1_D1C1_DSCF6846LR.JPG

    Tasting for the DIY and Local Vendor Juice Shootout Competitions...

    1_D1C1_DSCF6847LR.JPG

    That's @Rowan Francis posing with one of our promotional ladies. Thanks @Rowan Francis for keeping things running smoothly at the stand!

    1_D1C1_DSCF6850LR.JPG


    Tasting the juices in the competitions...

    1_D1C1_DSCF6980LR.JPG

    Another great shot of @Rowan Francis and the ladies!

    1_D1C1_DSCF7263LR.JPG

    @Rob Fisher taking a break with @Rowan Francis ;-)

    2_D1C2_DSCF8423LR.JPG

    Friendly smiles...

    3_DSCF7540LR.JPG

    Group Shot. That's @Alex on the far left, @Kuhlkatz kneeling in the front, myself and @Rob Fisher - and the somewhat less bearded @Stosta on the far right ;-) Flanked by the beautiful promotional ladies !

    2_D1C2_DSCF8353LR.JPG
    Another group shot - this time also with @SAVapeGear and @Christos kneeling in the front left

    2_D1C2_DSCF8357LR.JPG

    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!

    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!

    2_D1C2_DSCF8094LR.JPG 2_D1C2_DSCF8096LR.JPG 2_D1C2_DSCF8097LR.JPG

    The outside area proved very popular... out of the way of the crowds and some fresh air!
    2_D1C2_DSCF8103LR.JPG

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