On Monday and Tuesday, 2,463 people, 88% of pros flocked in foggy aisles of Centquatre in Paris. After the event, Patrick Bédué, the exhibition director, said he was “pleased with the visitation figures and the overall ambiance of the exhibition.”
But to be honest, for innovation, it was necessary to look for it, as the stands of e-liquids manufacturers and distributors were omnipresent. Big clouds, then, with the best quality of the juices. The combo box/sub-ohm atomizers had replaced the eGo, all in an ambiance half-way between relaxation and business. Despite a few stands with big clouds and loud rap music, it was far from the large US exhibition and it’s probably better that way.
After the show, Patrick Bédué announced that there will be no third edition of Innovaping Days. Instead, Vapexpo relocates and multiplies to become bi-annual, with a Parisian edition in September and another edition around March in another region. After Bordeaux in 2014, Lyon was elected to host the second provincial city event, in March 2017. But before that, the next edition of Vapexpo will be held as scheduled from September 25 to 27, 2016, at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris.
