    Hey @Chanelr

    I noticed that there are only 2 spots left in the DIY comp and you've mentioned that you may want to enter again.

    Don't miss out.

    As a matter of interest @Silver, are sponsors permitted to take part in any competitions?

    Well the only competition that vendors take part in is the local vendor juice shootout for an unreleased juice. And yes, our sponsors are allowed to take part in that.

    The other competitions are more from an individual’s perspective. Ie DIY, cloud and trick comps.

    Seems a bit odd for a sponsor to take part in something which he's sponsoring. Just wondering if that's ethical?

    I hear you @Hooked but these are main overall event sponsors - they are not involved in any way in the running of the local vendor unreleased juice shootout competition!

    We administer that competition by our team of ECIGSSA Admins/Mods and all vendors that are eligible to enter it and end up entering it are treated exactly the same.

    The votes for that competition are from the members of the public that attend the event. Not us as organisers. We are also improving the methodology of this competition for this year's event. More will be explained to the eligible vendors/exhibitors when we are in a position to announce it to them.

    :loudspeaker: Update

    We have nearly reached the 1 month to go mark!
    T-31 and counting...

    VapeCon 2019 is upon us!

    The whole team is working flat out to get all the finer details ready. Just want to say thanks to everyone involved. :inlove:

    Vendors/exhibitors are signed up. The support and interest in VapeCon 2019 has been outstanding. There are only a few stands left. Vendors have submitted their artwork for banners that need to be printed and are now working on their Innovations/What's New, Prizes and Specials submissions. These will be announced fairly soon.

    Competitions are being rolled out now with the help of @Christos. The DIY Comp has been done. We will announce the Local Vendor Unreleased Juice Shootout, Cloud Comp and Trick Comp in the coming week or so.

    We also have something great coming up this week. Watch for it. Going to be exciting... :rolleyes:

    Overall, everything is running according to plan.

    We are going to be in for a BIG treat on 31 August!

    Awesome, thank you @Christos

    It always amazes me how talented the tricksters are in our community.
    I look at some of the tricks and think how on earth do they do that.
    Certainly going to be exciting this year!
