Moscow sees the first vaping exhibition and conference Vapexpo-2015
The event took place at the Sokolniki Exhibition Centre on 19-20 June and drew considerable attention, especially among Moscow’s most advanced vapers. The very small exhibition of approximately 30 exhibitors was drowned in clouds of vapour. Some stands (for example those of the Russian companies I Like and Babylonvape) enjoyed a real full house. But there was fun at other stands too. The largest area was occupied by America’s Squaresmoke which presented e-shishas of various designs. Russia’s Vardex and China’s Stand Point Vapor (SPV) also had large booths. The only Chinese exhibitor also sponsored the conference and without its support the event would hardly have taken place. SPV brought to Russia its developments in both refillable and disposable ENDS as well as e-liquids. Of course, there were some organisational issues, some had not had their stands assembled in time, some had not got their material cleared through customs, and besides, it is impossible to find a place to eat in Sokolniki, but the exhibition did take place. It is even impossible to say that the first attempt was a failure. On the contrary, it was quite good for a first attempt.
