    So Vapecon 2016 happened on the 27th of August, and from what I've seen and heard, it looked to be an absolute jol ... Who was there, and what did you think of the event?

    Wasn't there personally, but heard from a good friend that it was good. Needs to iron out some niggles, like proper ventilation, the fact that there was only one food stall and not enough hydration, and also the fact that people who bought tickets online and well in advance had to wait much longer to get in then those buying tickets in advance.

    Vendor lines were also crazy, but that isn't the organizers fault

    Also wasnt there personally, it seems the one and only food stall was a major issue, this is not a go at the organizers and I do understand they took on a major task, but did no one wonder how one food stall would feed 1000-3000 people?

    Just wish they would bring a similar event to Cape Town, it may be smaller than the JHB one but the organizers would also be able to fine tune certain things on a somewhat smaller scale.

    I think Cape Town (and durbs for that matter) is LONG overdue for one of these events

    Maybe a Vape Haven Con should be on the cards for us poor Cape Town people.

    Vapecon 2016 was good, a very big improvement over the 2015 event.
    All the vendors have seemed to up their game and it was impressive to see what the ZA vape scene has become.
    On venue side, I would have preferred some more food/beverage type stalls.

    Some "Vapecon only" exclusive products would have been nice. I looked at 90% of the stands and there was nothing really that I could not buy online and have delivered to my house. I would have liked to walk away with some things that showed that I was at Vapecon.
    I did get an Opus t-shirt, which was the gift for buying two or more bottles of juice at the 'con ( wearing it now )

    I can't wait to see what Vapecon 2017 brings and will be supporting the event.

    VapeCon was a great success in the chill of winter. What do you all say about a steamy summer Vape Con?
