VAPEREXPO : Number of Exhibitors Halved, Audience Attend to Get Free Samples
The UK e-cigarette exhibition, which opened on September 27, 2023, saw a significant decline in exhibitors and attendees compared to previous years.

Since the opening of the e-cigarette exhibition in the UK on September 27, 2023, 2FIRSTS has observed for two consecutive days and found that, unlike the bustling scene of the UK exhibition at the same period last year, this exhibition is relatively quiet. Both the number of exhibitors and the number of visitors have decreased significantly, to the point where "bleak" can be used to describe it.

According to 2FIRSTS, the e-cigarette exhibition in the UK this year featured more than 150 participating companies, only half the number of exhibitors compared to last year's exhibition. The number of on-site visitors has sharply declined, with a significant portion of them attending in hopes of obtaining a free e-cigarette. Many of the attendees were seen carrying bags, both big and small, filled with complimentary e-cigarettes. They expressed that the £15 entrance fee was very much worth it.

A visitor to the exhibition informed 2FIRSTS that she has been attending British exhibitions for several years, and she noticed that the number of visitors at this exhibition is much lower compared to the exhibitions held in May of this year and the same period last year.
