NATIONAL VAPERS CLUB PRESENTS: MIAMI VAPEFEST 2015 E-CIGARETTE & VAPING CONVENTION HYATT REGENCY MIAMI, SEPTEMBER 18 & 19
The National Vapers Club (NVC) is pleased to present Miami Vapefest 2015, a convention for the e-cigarette and vaping community, taking place September 18-19, 2015 from 2pm -10pm at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, Florida. Current cigarette smokers wishing to learn more about vaping, and vapers of all levels are welcome.
VapeFest® is a social convention, educational forum, and industry networking event for current vapers as well as smokers who would like to learn about vaping, share their experiences, view and purchase the latest products, and socialize in a friendly meet-and-greet atmosphere. It is open to adults 18 years and older only.
A select variety of approximately 50 industry manufacturers and retailers will have vaping products available for purchase. New this year, a high-level panel of vaping advocacy experts will take place on the main-stage Saturday afternoon, with topical discussions and a lively Q&A expected. There will also be plenty of give-aways. Vaping personality Mike Morgan, mod creator and owner of House of Hybrids, will be the auctioneer of products donated for the cause, which will feature many one-of-a-kind and sought-after items during the live auction.
Guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy the after-parties. Friday night Vapefest Karaoke has become an entertaining and friendly tradition, highlighting the truly talented (and not so talented) of the vaping community. The Saturday night after-party will feature a DJ and guests are expected to dance through the night.
Known for putting the “Fun!” in fundraising, Vapefest is an event that puts 100% of its profits into advocacy and research. Profits for Miami Vapefest 2015 is earmarked to help fund a new study, Bystander Exposure Assessment Research Study (B.E.A.R.S) which NVC has already pledged $50,000 in seed money raised at past Vapefest events. B.E.A.R.S will be the first study of its kind to be performed in a multi-floor shared ventilation system building in order to assess any alleged potential risks to non-vapers living close by.
Launched in 2009, National Vapers Club presents Vapefest twice a year, one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. It is the longest running vape event in the nation and has grown as vaping has become more and more popular with smokers looking for a less harmful alternative to combustible tobacco cigarettes. NVC’s next event will be Vegas Vapefest 2016 in February at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Vapefest is a great place for everyone from beginners to advanced vapers to meet and chat with other vapers, meet up with friends, make new ones, learn about, see and buy the latest products from the hottest makers and stores in the world, party until all hours of the night, and join in on the inevitable ‘Vapefest Karaoke!’” said Cheryl Richter, National Vapers Club board member. “Plus, you’ll raise your awareness of legislative efforts by learning from the foremost vaping advocates in the country and your attendance will help fund this important research study and help us carry out our vital

About National Vapers Club: National Vapers Club is a volunteer organization founded in 2009 that raises funds for scientific research, provides education to anyone who wants to learn more about electronic cigarettes, and helps protect vapers rights by activism on the local, state and federal levels. The group presents Vapefest (vapefest.com), a semi-annual convention for vapers which is an educational, consumer/trade show. With funds raised from this and other grass-roots efforts, National Vapers Club funded the Indoor Vapor Air Quality Study (ivaqs.com) that determined e-cigarette vapor did not present a risk for bystanders, which was published in the peer reviewed journal, Inhalation Toxicology in October 2012. This data is now presented to legislatures and health departments in localities where e-cigarette bans have been proposed or passed. Subsequent Vapefest events will support the Bystander Exposure Assessment Research Study (B.E.A.R.S) Today, National Vapers Club is a hub of information for those who know activism is important to the future of vaping, and for those that want to know how to help.
