In just a few days Toronto will host Canada’s Vape Expo. This trade show features a multitude of fun and informative events, including a cloud competition, special guest speakers, loads of giveaways and vendors from all over North America offering their wares at special discounted prices.
The show opens on Friday May 13 and closes Sunday May 15, 2016, and is being held at The International Centre, 6900 Airport Road, Mississauga, just minutes from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. There’s a small entry fee of $5 if you pre-purchase your ticket, or $10 at the door. This convention offers a fabulous opportunity to test new e-juices, scoop up some great vaping bargains and make or reconnect with new and old vaping friends.
Perfect timing for vape advocates
Coincidentally or not, this event is well-timed given the recent Wynne-government decision to get tough with vape retailers and with e-cigarette customers. We don’t know for sure, but we expect there will be much talk about the Ontario movement to try to force the government to rethink legislation that bans vaping from public places including vape shops.
As most of us know, this archaic legislation equates e-cigarettes, e-liquids and their accompanying paraphernalia with tobacco and all of its health hazards – a more than controversial idea that has stirred the ire of both the vaping community and the Conservative and New Democratic opposition members of the Ontario government.
Ex-smokers extoll the virtues of vaping
Vapecan 2016 is expecting to welcome thousands of visitors from all across North America, including a huge contingent of ex-tobacco smokers who credit e-cigarettes and vaping with helping them quit tobacco cigarettes for good.
“This is our industry’s opportunity to demonstrate to governments that Canadians are demanding obstacle-free, healthier choices, especially Canadians who are finally ready to abandon tobacco products,” said Charlie Pisano, of VapeMeet. He continues, “There’s never been a mass movement of harm reduction advocates seen at this scale in our country’s history.”
To encourage more tobacco smokers to quit, there’s even an offer to current smokers to receive a free vaping starter kit in exchange for turning in their pack of cigarettes!
This is one of the best vape shows of the year here in Canada, so don’t miss it!
