    Very sad but I do believe it’s the right choice given the circumstances.

    This can only mean that vapecon 202X will be super extra mega epic :D

    Definitely the correct decision. A Tough one, and a bitter pill to swallow, but the correct one.

    @Rob Fisher with the 2020 installment cancelled, can we hope for a 2021 double header?
    Maybe one early in the year and another in springtime?

    It depends on how the economy recovers and how all our precious Vape vendors do after lockdown.

    @Rob Fisher and @Silver with Vapecon 2020 cancelled, will the 2021 installment perhaps be earlier in the year, or will it remain in the late August slot?

    Not sure yet @CJB85. We are just waiting for the dust to settle and see how the vaping scene is after all this crap and then we will decide.

    Awesome, I really hope that the government does not come up with some new shenanigans that would effectively wipe Vapecon off the board for good. I can't imagine a Vapecon where no-one is allowed to vape!

    You are probably right, but then again, VC is worth the ticket and trip just to walk through the venue and have a bite and beer afterwards.

    Absolutely, my wife was still an occasional vaper around the time of the 2019 event. She "just tagged along because I wanted to go" and ended up buying more than I did! Come to think of it, I had to pay for all her stuff too!

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean! @CaliGuy warned me early enough and I saved up a bit for Vapecon... then my wife spent most of it! To be fair, I vaped most of the juice that she bought in her excited state, so can't really complain.
