Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) has been chosen as the host of a brand new show - The Vaper Expo UK - dedicated to the fast growing e-cigarettes and vaping industry. The public exhibition will take place in the NEC’s Pavillion from 11-12 July 2015.

The show will bring together members of the vaping community, including vendors and consumers, to showcase the most sought after products in the industry. It will benefit from the NEC’s unrivalled connectivity by road and rail and its location within a three hour drive time of 75% of the UK population to reach a national audience. 

Lee Skelding, Show Director, said: “We believe we have secured the best possible and most suitable venue here in the UK to host our own much needed trade and public vaping exhibition. The NEC is one of the UK’s biggest exhibition venues and offers the space and amenities needed to bring together industry retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors. 

“We have some fantastic exhibitors lined up for the show, including; our official sponsor, Cutwood, our platinum sponsor, Diamond Mist and the UK’s biggest vendor, Totally Wicked.”

David Gallagher, the NEC’s New Business Development Manager - Exhibitions, said: “At the NEC, we aim to give our visitors the opportunity to learn about new industries and we are always looking for new markets to explore. The Vaper Expo UK is one of the first of its kind in the UK and caters for a relatively new market so it’s a perfect fit for the NEC.”

The latest NEC contract win follows the announcement earlier this month that the Drone Show will launch at the NEC in December 2015.
