Organiser Chris Birks...
Vapefest, Expo, both fantastic events but for a Northerner, a long way to travel. Why isn’t there an event like that nearer to home? One that is more central? Somewhere that has a great road and rail network, that isn’t out in the sticks….
Doncaster came to mind, and Parklands is just a 15-minute stroll from the town centre. My dad used to say, if you want something doing, do it yourself, so with that thought in my head, I decided to do just that!
It isn’t about money (that’s why entry is, and always will be FREE) it is about getting like-minded people together for a bit of fun. In 2015 I recruited the help of a handful of Facebook friends, I couldn’t have done it on my own, and together we pulled it off!
The first VapeCollective was in May 2016 and was a resounding success. We had our fair share of teething troubles, but we have learned from our mistakes and VapeCollective 2, 9 – 10 June 2018 promises to be bigger and better!
Entry to the event will again be FREE, and with just a nominal charge for Vendors to help cover our costs, I hope to see you there. Remember, this is a Collective, without YOU there is no event.
For 2018, I have a fantastic team…. Andy Cross, Bernice Evans, Damian Morter, Ekaete Kim Assiak, Mark Hempsall and Jayson Moore.
We look forward to welcoming you at Vape Collective 2.
