In 2022, the vape and e-cigarette industry is estimated to be worth $22.46 billion, with 64 million people using vaping devices. This figure is expected to rise, with experts forecasting the industry to be worth $182.64 billion by 2030.

The World Vape Show, launched in September 2021, was the first international vape expo and conference in the UAE, and one that proved to be a BIG hit. It provided global manufacturers and suppliers a unique opportunity to showcase hundreds of products to thousands of international retailers, wholesalers, distributors, and consumers in Dubai.

Now, the WVS brand has expanded and developed to become the fastest growing vape event in the world with events in the UK, UAE, Asia and South America.

Why Ciudad del Este, Paraguay

The ONLY international vape expo in the region which will provide a unique and unrivalled opportunity for the vape community to gather, connect and do business.

In 2023, the WVS will open up a new gateway for the hundreds of manufacturers and suppliers, who are exhibiting, to meet a new audience made up of 0000’s of trade professionals from all across the region, including retailers, wholesalers & distributors and consumers, who will be visiting.

Paraguay is a beautiful country which will open up a new gateway to South America. The country is the perfect location to access and capture emerging markets from neighbouring countries, most notably Brazil, where it is estimated that 20% of the young adults smoke e-cigarettes, which equates to 12% of the total population....and growing!

The show will take place in the countries second largest city, Ciudad del Este. The city sits right on the boarder of Brazil, South Americas largest vape market, which is easily and freely accessible by road.

Ciudad del Este is a commercial city, and is one of the largest free-trade zones in the world. Its tax-free status attracts many audiences from all over the continent and further afield.

With improving infrastructure, a growth of 3.7% predicted in 2022 and the most stable currencies in the world, Paraguay hold a real business opportunity for the vape industry.


Although Paraguay is land-locked, it has major ports along the Paraguay and Parana rivers that have access to the Atlantic!
