Continued from Vapercon 2 (Part 1)
After lunch Miss Emma, Ms. Bjfgator, my wife and I returned to Vapercon, bellies full and with a few adult beverages in our system. While it was busy before we left for lunch, it was nothing compared to what we walked back into. The room was completely packed to a point where there was no real room to maneuver. Trying to talk to the least active vendor took 10 minutes of waiting in front of their table. It had gotten to a point where many people were just waiting at the tables in front of the convention area entrance, on the stairs, in the lobby, and even outside the hotel to get some fresh air.
At this point Miss Emma returned to the table with her good friends and mod users, while Ms. Bjfgator joined my wife and I for the trek around the room. We stopped at every vendor table. This is where you get a chance to meet the people behind the different ecig companies. Some vendors were so busy they couldn't talk, others were there just to sell their products, and others were simply anti-social. There were a few though very willing to talk about their products and many things vaping related. We also got to take a look at some of the newer mods on the market, and some older ones Ms. Bjfgator had only read about online but not seen in person.
This leads to the best part about vaping conventions. Where it can cost a person a lot of money to try every mod on the market, at a convention you can try a few, get a feel for them through simply holding them, or at the very least talk to others who own them. There wasn't a single type of ecig that wasn't represented. The only downfall to a meeting like this is it can be very overwhelming to a new or inexperienced vaper. My suggestion for those who are first starting out, is to go to a convention or vape meet with someone who does know a thing or two about electronic cigarettes. Even if you meet up with a person from the forums or Facebook
there it will not only save you a lot of money (it's very easy to spend way more than you planned), but help you get the right item for your next step on your vaping journey.
What vape meets or conventions have you been to?
