Just from the title of this particular event, it is surely not outrageous to suggest that it may very well be advantageous for any or all vape-related businesses to look into for registering to attend. Any conference titled “Vape & the FDA” should be something of great interest to all those involved in the U.S. Vape Industry or any other businesses outside of the U.S. who also do business with other brands inside America.
According to the VTA, “Last year’s Vape & the FDA Conference was a great success.” Is this a bold claim? Perhaps, it could be labeled in such a way. Then again, the VTA has a compelling reason to make this statement, this is because, as we all should know: “Numbers don’t Lie.”
Last year, the 1st “Vape & the FDA Conference” was attended by over 200 industry professionals who represented 67 companies from 26 states and 4 countries. These numbers are indeed impressive, especially for the very first outing.
What to Expect at the Conference
Below is a list of themes and topics that you should expect to be the primary focus of what will ultimately be covered during the conference:
“Surviving & Thriving in – A New Regime for Vapor”
Keynote Address by Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.
One year post-Deeming. A new Administration is engaged.
Deadlines are moving. Congress is filing new bills.
What does it all mean? Where is it all headed?
You Are Officially Invited by the VTA
On July 17-19th in Washington D.C., the VTA would like to see as many guests as they can accommodate at this event. Many might be asking, who is able to attend this event? VTA clarifies that nearly everyone in any area within the industry is invited.
Whether you are an e-liquid or device manufacturer, vape shop owner, supplier, distributor, or importer. Therefore, if you are a vape-related business, then there should be no reason for your absence.
Especially this conference, “Vape & the FDA” it might just be an eye-opening experience. It seems absolutely crucial to become familiar with every last detail to the federal regulatory process. If you’re serious about staying in business in the U.S. Vape Industry, then you seriously must act soon, but only act after self-educating yourselves.
This is that chance to learn what you need to know because what is waiting for your business is a giant barrier in the form of federal regulations. We all agree it’s absolutely absurd what is happening to Vapor in this country. A harm reduction technique being demonized is literally outlandish and illogical, but if we want change, it all starts with education. That’s what the “Vape & the FDA Conference” is all about. Coming together to share the proper information.
