Last weekend marked the first ever international vape exhibit named Vapex 2015. The 3-day event had 140 local and foreign vendors on display with over 5,000 people attending in the first 6 hours.
This marked a vape victory not only in Malaysia but also for the international community. Despite it’s bad reputation with the media, vaping still draws crowds during expos. It shows that vapers can come together to celebrate the thing we love. You won’t see minors participating or people getting high at these conventions.
These type of events help out the community in a big way. It gives opportunities to independent vape companies to meet with other businesses to help in expanding their company. One good example of this is the Durian flavored Musang King, a locally made e-juice that sold 200 30ml bottles at under $10 a pop in the first few hours. Large quantity orders from Chinese businesses for the e-juice but the problem is the comapny not being able to supply the demand.
I am glad that people all over the world are converging on this new technology that has saved thousands of people’s lives. It also shows that vaping is effective and really works with getting off the stinky ciggies. I congratulate our brothers and sisters in Malaysia for putting together a successful vape expo and may others follow suit from other parts of the world.
