Vaping Diaries #227: Return From ECC 2014

I just got back from the 2014 Electronic Cigarette Convention (ECC 2014) and am still on a high from the show. The ECC crew really impressed me with its professionalism at last year’s convention and I was really looking forward to seeing what kind of progress the organizers have made in one year’s time. In a word — wow! ECC 2014 was a fantastic blend of fun and productivity. The show organizers maintained the professionalism and media-friendly practices that I appreciated (immensely) from last year’s show, but grew the event exponentially. ECC 2014 was at least five times bigger than last year’s event (and that’s a really conservative estimate). There was much more of everything — exhibitors, attendees, hardware, juices, raffles, booth babes, and more. A lot of business was conducted during the B2B hours early on Friday and Saturday, while consumers had a blast the entire weekend. Loads of great companies were promoting products and several launched news ones at the show. Vapers got to try lots of great vaping gear and e-liquids, with many walking away with oodles of freebies. This was easily the best vaping convention I’ve ever attended.

As for the content, the RPadTV crew shot more than 30 interviews at ECC 2014. Expect a bunch of chats with mod makers, juice makers, accessory manufacturers, and more. I had lots of fun catching up with old friends (in vaping years) at Five Pawns, Surefire Vapor, Innokin, Poet and more. It was a pleasure making new friends at Boilermaker, Convict Vapor, Witchers Brew, and other great vaping companies. There may or may not be several models thrown in for good measure. The gang worked hard all weekend and I hope you enjoy the interviews from ECC 2014.

Huge thanks to RPadholics Nate and Lawrence for working long hours and beating up their legs in order to get these interviews filmed. Special thanks to ECC’s Dulce Mac for taking care of the crew and me going into the show.
