    I get updates on VapeCon a few times a day from Hi Ho @Silver and I must say I'm getting more than a little excited for VapeCon! Yes I know there are lekker specials and deals, yes the food is awesome, yes it going to be really nice to see a whole lot of new international players... but for me, it's all about the people! I can't wait to see tons of old friends and meet a whole heap of new people I have chatted to online and will get to meet face to face real soon!

    Two solid days of talking vape! Works for me!

    Good question @Hooked

    We have asked all exhibitors who have brick and mortar stores to help us by putting up the poster in their store. We are also sending it to a few other vendors who are not exhibitors at this year's event.

    The posters are currently being printed and will go out this week.

    We are also putting it up at a few universities and pubs/bars/restaurants in and around Gauteng - at least at those establishments that have agreed to host the poster for us ;-)

    If anyone has a brick and mortar vape store or a restaurant and would like a poster and wants to help us promote the event, please get in touch with us on info@vapecon.co.za - our team will try assist to get a poster to you.

    We have other advertising planned too....
    Will be making some announcements soon

    Hi @Chanelr - in that post above with the poster - I have attached a slightly higher res version.
    When uploading inline images, the forum software compresses things.
    So if you need a better quality one, there it is attached. Just scroll up.

    If you need a higher res version, just send me a PM and we can get our team to help out.

    Hi @Safz_b , we will announce the headline specials from exhibitors that send them to us toward the middle of August or thereabouts. The idea is to have a special for Saturday and another one for Sunday - so those who come on either day are catered for.

    Have a look at the Headline Specials thread from last year - (its on page 2 of the VapeCon subforum) - some of the exhibitors had different specials for the two days - others had the same special.

    This year we are going to focus a lot on the Innovations and What's new. We are fortunate this year in that we have many first time VapeCon exhibitors from overseas - so there is bound to be plenty new things to see for us here in SA!
