On Friday, Vapor4Life went to the second annual VapeBash, an e-cig convention in Rosemont, Illinois. It was packed, with over 1,600 vapers in attendance! I heard the Windy City Vapers Club (who put on the event) actually ran out of name badges on the first day (now that
is a good problem to have)! There were so many people there, in fact, it was a little hard to hear, and almost hard to see people with all the vapor that hung in the air.
Brandon (BHam) and a few other V4L crew members tended to our booth. We saw several customers and people from the forums. We saw @TowerofVape (Rich Gavina), StephanieT, AzVitesse who gave BHam a big hug, TxTunesLady, who wore cute pigtails, Lisa66, Frank Cahall, and Mark Raymond sporting a new mod. It was really fun meeting people in real life who we frequently talk with online.
E-cigarette reviewers Nick Grimm Green, Phil Busardo, Dimitri (The Vaping Greek), and Darren Williger were there.
A lot of vendors donated prizes for a raffle drawing. Vapor4Life gave away four Automatic Dial-A-Volt Starter Kits, one in each of the four sizes and colors. There was a flavor table set up where companies could leave juice for people to try. We sold a lot of WOW e-juice, particularly the Apple and Peach breeze menthol flavors.
We saw a ton of cool new toys from other vendors. There were soft bunny drip tips,
Steampunk mods, mustache drip tips, glass tanks, e-pipes, EGOs, t-shirts, and more.
A ton of people took pictures and videos of the event. Here are a few:
