CULTURE: VAP'EST, the first salon of the vape organized by a union chamber of tobacconists!

This Sunday 23 June was held in Pont-à-Mousson Vap'Est, the first fair organized by the Chambre Syndicale des Buralistes de Meurthe et Moselle and dedicated to the vape in the East. This show was reserved for professionals and especially tobacconists often denigrated in other salons dedicated to vaping.

Nhoss, Vype, Myblu, Silver Cig or even Dlice, Green Vapes et Vape Cellar, the first salon Vap'Est dedicated to the e-cigarette and organized by the union chamber of the tobacconists of Meurthe and Moselle attracted beautiful people. For this unique day, this event reserved for professionals and intended for tobacconists seems to have succeeded in allowing visitors to meet suppliers, discover new services and exchange with colleagues in a friendly atmosphere.

And this is not a surprise because with successive increases in the price of the pack of cigarettes (which will reach 10 euros in 2020), tobacconists are more and more numerous to take an interest in the e-cigarette, in which they see a way to diversify further.

With its range of products of the vape, Pierre, one of the exhibitors, hopes to convince the tobacconists: « The tobacconist market is very important as the electronic cigarette is a great way to stop smoking. But smoking cessation is for tobacco users who are ... in tobacco shops".

Installed at the booth next door, Nicolas agrees. « The press was no longer profitable, so two years ago I replaced it with other activities, such as the electronic cigarette, which works much better. It's part of the diversification of our business« , says this tobacconist Haute-Savoie.

For this first meeting, conferences were also organized largely by Thierry Lefebvre, a true specialist in the sector. The topics of the conferences were :

  • Knowledge of products (equipment and e-liquids) (Speaker: Thierry LEFEVRE)
  • Customize the customer approach and provide "good advice" (Speaker: Thierry LEFEVRE)
  • IQOS (Speaker: Philip Morris International)
  • Present your offer / promote it (Speaker: Thierry LEFEVRE)
  • Focus on regulation (Speaker: Thierry LEFEVRE)
