World Vape Show Asia... As an introduction to the region, we trailed a show in the region (in September 2022, and co-located with World Tobacco Asia, Surabaya) which gave us real insight and was a big success. So much so, we are now launching a stand-alone WVS in November 2023 in the Philippines.
The show will will be a new gateway for the buying and selling of vape products in the region. This will be the first vape expo ever to feature in the Philippines, and one that will open up a whole new market in South East Asia, a region which is set for a period of rapid growth, having just recently been legalised.
The World Vape Show, the fastest growing vape event in the world, is coming to South America. Held in Paraguay on 10-11 March 2023, we are excited to bring you the newest edition of the WVS Series.
WVS Paraguay will open up a new gate way for business in Paraguay itself as well as the wide South American region. The show is already largely sold out so if you are interested, get in touch via the CONTACT US tab. We will be back with more information in due course.
Great news…due to the popularity of the Meet the Buyer initiative, the show has evolved into an exclusive stand-alone Meet the Buyer event at The Belfry Hotel and Golf Resort on the 08th – 09th May 2023.
This is a unique and unrivalled opportunity for manufactures and suppliers to connect, collaborate and do business with C-Level buyers from global retailers, wholesalers and distros, including those from FMCG market....
This all inclusive package (all food, drink and accommodation included) takes place at the world famous golf resort, this VIP invite only event will consist of numerous networking opportunities in a professional environment, along with other activities, drinks, gala dinner and entertainment from household names from the world of comedy and music.
With three successful vape events (Sept 21, Dec 21, June 22) under our belt, we look forward to developing and growing our shows and having more focus on doing business.
