    We are very excited to announce:

    VapeCon 2019 - brought to you by ECIGSSA


    It will take place on Saturday 31 August AND Sunday 1 September 2019 and will be held at the Heartfelt Arena in Pretoria.

    Let's just say that it's going to be an incredible event for all!

    If you haven't seen the video from VapeCon 2018 - have a look:
    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/vapecon-2018-official-video.t53808/

    Vaping has gone mainstream. VapeCon 2019 is going to be full of fun and excitement for all with access to superb vaping vendors, great deals and the ability to see what's hot in vaping in 2019.

    This year we are working on several refinements and improvements over last year's event. We have listened to a lot of feedback from attendees and exhibitors - and we are aiming for a great event for everyone in the vaping community.

    As we roll out the event and the various initiatives, we will announce them here and provide links to the relevant threads.

    There will be lots of giveaways, prizes and competitions. While this event is open to all, we are going to do something special again for the ECIGSSA members. For some of these giveaways, we are going to be making use of the RSVP list. So please RSVP with the blue button below. (with a normal browser - not Tapatalk)

    The event is brought to you by ECIGSSA so the team here will be working hard in the months ahead to make it a success. Once again, @Silver will be handling vendors for the event and both @Rob Fisher and @Silver will be the official spokespersons.

    Please save the dates and be sure to join us for an incredible time at VapeCon 2019!

    No under 18s - right of admission reserved. VapeCon is an event for adults. Please do not bring your kids.

    I just only now realised that it's after payday. Less money I have to hide under my mattress than the last 3 years where unfortunately it was before payday for me. This will be a forum secret otherwise my wife is going to check under the mattress now. And also not lus for the how much more vape stuff do you need speech.

    Hi @Jean claude Vaaldamme
    Thanks for the question

    When we are ready to announce the format of this year's event we will announce it. Still working on plenty things.

    We announced in the original post that it will be during that weekend. Mainly for the benefit of those who need to plan (especially those coming from far)

    But we haven't yet announced the actual format or times yet.

    I was there last year on the Sunday and it was very pleasant. Not a lot of people. Can get through most of the stalls in under 2 hours and from there its just strolling around and tasting juices and chatting to guys you might recognise.

    There is still giveaways and specials but the frenzy was very bearable.

    Most of the bargain hunters go on the Saturday to be there first. So if you don't like crowds I would not suggest the Saturday.

    Also remember the GPS. We don't have a mountain to help with navigation.

    Challenge accepted! The only peeps that do that are the vaalies when visiting CT as it seems the in thing to do on the R24 between Joburg and Pretoria.

    Jokes asside, I do think we have less of that going on here than you have up there.

    Regards
